I wouldn't do it myself - but then I'm not terminally ill. At the moment. Things may (almost certainly will, given my genetics) change as I get older and I have seen enough people die slowly and in pain not to want to do it myself, so.....
We put down our pets when they are old and ill - why not ourselves?
Thanks, Terry for yet another well-argued piece in favour of humanity.
And thanks to the late Peter Smedley ("a truly brave man", as Terry said) for allowing his last moments to be filmed for the programme.
I'm in total agreement, it was a very hard documentary to watch however it presented a lot of insightful facts. Peter Smedley was a very brave man for doing what he did. RIP.
