The Suicide Plan

Last night I watched The Suicide Plan on PBS. It was a very eye opening documentary about people opting to end their lives in states where it is still illegal.  Currently Washington and Oregon have death with dignity laws that will allow a doctor to prescribe a medication that will hasten a person's death, but that person has to have a terminal diagnosis.  This documentary explored the alternative.  I encourage you to watch it even if you don't agree with it. If anything, you might see a different perspective or you might have your beliefs confirmed.  Either way, you're learning something about yourself and the world.

Okay, so I know better than to ask what you all think about "assisted suicide."  Death is already a taboo subject, so I realize that no one (okay, maybe one or two) will step forward and give me their thoughts.  But, that's okay.  I encourage you to have this conversation with someone you're close to.  Or even better, watch this segment on the link I provided and discuss it with them.

Have a great rest of the week!
