In the UK, if someone deliberately left an animal in pain or incapacitated they would end up in court charged with cruelty. Why aren't humans afforded the same degree of consideration and dignity of animals? I think someone said something like this in another thread but I think its worth repeating.Cheery wrote:Even in Switzerland many people still object. They say things like "it's unnessecary" or "It's inhumain". I'd like to ask: What's inhumain? Letting someone who is in pain die or force him to live against his will?

It really was a very moving lecture.Marianne wrote:I found it extremely moving- it said (rather: Terry said...) everything I feel about the subject, but so much better. I feel very very lucky to live in Switzerland, a country where I would be allowed to die in dignity in my own home - or garden - with the help and support of my loved ones- without fearing that they would risk prosecution. I so hope Terry will be able to chose his own time and way, and my heart goes to him and his family.
