After seeing the Bo
llywood movie Guzaarish http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1438298/ it's clear the patient should be TERMINALLY ILL, not just willing to give up life when not classified as terminal. 8 years ago from a Republican in Bakersfield, CA
Euthanasia should be actively encouraged like in Solyent Green. 8 years ago from a Republican in Guasti, CA
Yes, but only after a system is in place to allow a person to choose when they are mentally capable (like when you get your driver's license and you choose to be a donor). 8 years ago from a Democrat in El Segundo, CA
Yes, but only if the patient is in a sound mental state and makes the decision them self. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Piedmont, CA
I think it depends on the mental and physical state of the patent. If they are a vegetable and have a written will or health directive that states to do so then yes. Or if there is a great deal of pain that cannot be helped by prescription medication.... 8 years ago from a Republican in Cutten, CA
No. But should be allowed to make fundamental decisions on how to die, with assistance of the medical profession, family and other care givers. Such as refuse heroic intervention, food, etc. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Pasadena, CA
Choice should be between patient (family) and doctor. 8 years ago from a Democrat in San Francisco, CA
Yes, but only if thoroughly spoken to by a psychologist and friends and family. 8 years ago from a Green in Brisbane, CA
Yes, but only if there is no chance of recovery, as well as after a psychological examination to prove they are in a sound mental state, and living is causing them physical and mental pain. 8 years ago from a Socialist in Carson, CA
Yes but only if they are in a sound mental state and have been spoken to about what they may face after they pass good and bad. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Adelanto, CA
Yes but Only after the insurance companies like Blue Cross and their self serving front group compasionandchoices.org is removed from the training, protocol, and law crafting of MOLST. (see it's initiation in New York) Also the public and health care providers need to understand the just how terminal a "terminal illness" is anyway. Illnesses are much more terminal when insurance companies don't want to pay for them and the same insurance company initiates legislation mandating that a doctor discuss MOLST which is tantamount to euthanasia. Most patients will do what their doctor steers them to do, and they will think they are making their own choice.
MOLST stands for Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment. 8 years ago from a Socialist in Coronado, CA
The right to die, especially by the terminally ill, is a personal decision. The government should not have a role preventing a person who make this decision, other than to ensure that those involved (other than the patient) do not have other motivations.... 8 years ago from a Green in La Mesa, CA
