I think in theory assisted suicide sounds like a humane ending, but when it comes to practical application, its just too messy. What was that woman's name from a few years ago...Terri? Remember, she was in a chronic vegetative state, and her husband wanted to end support but her family didn't. If a person is elderly, it might seem like the right thing to do. But where is that line? If someone doesn't have a living will, what then? If you were suffering, would you want your spouse or your family to make that decision? What if, like that woman, your spouse was estranged? Or it had been several years, and he or she wanted to get remarried? I just think there are too many unknowns to make it "humane".
