So sad. Fortunately no one forced her to be a prisoner in a body and a life she no longer wanted to inhabit.

Good but sad for her, more so for her family. Good for the State of Oregon.

Yes, she was very brave. Legalising it is a very complex matter, though, because when one leaves it too late, it becomes a matter for others to decide.

I'm for it, but the law must be made without loopholes.

Most folk would sympathise with people in terrible pain wishing to end it all. Doctors do too (nudge nudge wink wink).

Here in Australia a few years back we had the case of Nancy Crick, poster girl for Dr Philip Nietschke's Right to Die movement. She topped herself in a blaze of publicity because she had terminal cancer. Afterwards the Post Mortem showed there was no trace of cancer in her body! Whoops.

Now it seems, the family are squabbling over the inheritance. See:

Maybe there's still some work to be done on this,

The law is working as intended, Oregon was the first state to pass such a law. Not exactly on the same page, last night Oregon became the third state to legalize marijuana.
