... Mr. Fletcher’s experience has prompted him to support those who argue in favour of legally assisted suicide for people with terminal illnesses. “I think those people should have the opportunity to ask for help to close life’s circle,” he said, a position that puts him at odds with his party. ...So, Mr. Fletcher holds up his own situation following his terrible accident as justification for legalizing assisted suicide. Does this mean he wished he'd killed himself to avoid the temporary pain of his injuries and/or the quadriplegic state he now endures? It seems so, which would imply he wishes he were now dead. If so, he should go ahead and fulfill that wish. He has my blessing. But he shouldn't be seeking to involve the rest of us in killing him. Suicide should be strictly DIY.
And, let's be frank, legalized assisted suicide would soon morph into legalized euthanasia. That's what these death cultists really have their black, cowardly hearts set on. Legalizing assisted suicide is just a foot in the door.
