The Right To Die With Dignity

File Photo

Empathy is a feeling. Different than sympathy. Empathy is the ability to understand another person’s experiences.

“The right to die with dignity” is a choice. If your religion forbids it, then do not do it. However, I choose to die with dignity, to die without pain and suffering or the loss of all my hard earned assets. At the end of life all is lost to doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and more.

We put our pets down when they are terminal and suffering, why should we deny humans the same right and choice? Please vote in your state for this bill to pass “the right to die with dignity.” You do not have to choose this for yourself but please vote for it for those like me who do need and choose this right at the time when it is necessary.
