The right (if terminally ill) to die painfree and with dignity.

Whilst I realise this could be misused, if the correct procedures were in place, this would prove a blessing for a large proportion of the diagnosed terminally ill. How devastating it is at present to watch your loved ones die, usually unconscious, unable to converse with their families, because doctors and nurses don’t usually tell the families how bad the patient is until it is too late. They are then dispatched to a hospice if lucky, and die there, without regaining consciousness, and many personal things are left unsaid, and cause untold problems with the grieving process.

Why does this idea matter?

I would not want other people to go through the horror and devastation that my husband,s unbelievably painful illness and death has caused. I truly believe in 2010 we should as a country treat people with more respect and love.
