My dad died last month from asbestos related cancer of the stomach, he wanted to go naturally but it was very emotionally painful on the family. I asked my mum what she thought of euthanasia after and she nodded its ok. I dont want to go out like that sick for months on chemo and in so much pain I will push the button for lots of morphine when I decide its time.

to take someone's pain away is nothing short of human compassion, intelligence...

its the right decision imo
How many times must you honk your horn and say fuck you?
Now what the fuck does that do?
You feel better now, I didnt let you pass.
How bout I stop my car and beat your fuckin' ass?

I watched the documentary and I was not shocked by the actual suicide. I was surprised that BBC had the balls to screen it though after the furor in the press leading up to tonight.

It was a very dignified departure from an undoubtedly miserable life. The man who commited suicide was asked on 2 occasions just before he took the fatal dose if he was sure he wanted to go through with it. He had been assessed by doctors to ensure he was making the decision with a sound mind and the clinic in Switzerland that offer the facilities were very professional in their approach.

Having watched my own father suffer for 10 years before he died a terrible and painful death I have no doubt that he would have considered this alternative if it had been available.

Author Sir Terry Pratchett has defended his BBC TV documentary about assisted suicide, Choosing to Die.

In the film shown on Monday, the 63-year-old author - who has Alzheimer's disease - travelled to Switzerland to see a British man dying.

Peter Smedley, a 71-year-old hotelier, had motor neurone disease.

Liz Carr, a disability campaigner, said she thought the documentary was pro-suicide propaganda and said she was surprised the BBC had made it.

But Sir Terry said: "I believe it should be possible for someone stricken with a serious and ultimately fatal illness to choose to die peacefully with medical help, rather than suffer."

The BBC denied the screening could lead to copycat suicides and said it would enable viewers to make up their own minds on the subject.

"I want to see much more emphasis put on supporting people in living, than assisting them in dying”

Ms Carr said: "I and many other disabled older and terminally ill people, are quite fearful of what legalising assisted suicide would do and mean and those arguments aren't being debated, teased out, the safeguards aren't being looked at.

"Until we have a programme that does that, then I won't be happy to move onto this wider debate."

The Bishop of Exeter, the Right Reverend Michael Langrish, said: "I want to see much more emphasis put on supporting people in living, than assisting them in dying."

He said: "The law still enshrines that sense of the intrinsic value of life. But the law ultimately is not there to constrain individual choice. It's there to constrain third party action and complicity in another person's death.

"That remains illegal. There may be ameliorating circumstances that can be taken into account. But the law remains clear and is there to protect the vulnerable."

Debbie Purdy, who has multiple sclerosis, went to court to protect her husband from prosecution if he accompanies her to the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland.

'Quality of life'
She said in a debate after the programme: "Politicians haven't kept up.

"Lawyers and judges have been the only people who have been prepared to defend my rights... and my right to life and the quality of my life is the most important thing to me."

The programme, which was aired on Monday on BBC Two, showed Mr Smedley travelling from his home in Guernsey to Switzerland and taking a lethal dose of barbiturates at the Dignitas clinic.

In the last 12 years 1,100 people from all over Europe have been "assisted to die" at the clinic.

A spokeswoman for the pressure group Dignity in Dying said it was "deeply moving and at times difficult to watch".

She said: "It clearly didn't seek to hide the realities of assisted dying. In setting out one person's views on assisted dying, it challenges all of us to think about this important issue head on and ask what choices we might want for ourselves and our loved ones at the end of life."

She said the current legal situation in the UK meant "not only are people travelling abroad to die, but there are also those who are ending their lives at home, behind closed doors, or with the help of doctors and loved ones who are helping illegally."

'Propaganda'
Dignity in Dying is calling for an assisted dying law with "upfront safeguards".

But Alistair Thompson, a spokesman for the Care Not Killing Alliance pressure group, said: "This is pro-assisted suicide propaganda loosely dressed up as a documentary."

Campaigners claim it is the fifth programme on the subject produced by the BBC in three years presented by a pro-euthanasia campaigner or sympathiser.

Mr Thompson said: "The evidence is that the more you portray this, the more suicides you will have.

"The BBC is funded in a different way to other media and has a responsibility to give a balanced programme."

The BBC denied it was biased on the issue and a spokeswoman said the documentary was "about one person's experience, Terry's journey exploring the issues and the experience he is going through".

"It is giving people the chance to make their own minds up on the issue," she added

Thanks for the kindness folks and my heart is with those who have lost loved ones to the pain.
Dignity is the word when its to much to handle anymore, some of us are proud enough to want to go out when we dont want to feel the pain and have had enough people wiping our arses.
