Physician Assisted Suicide debate.

This is, again under discussion.

A primary objection seems to be about relatives pressuring people to end their lives because they don't want the care burden or worry about the cost of long term care.

What about the possibility of a downloadable statement. "I do not and never will want physician assisted suicide as an action for myself." Or a similar statement.

They can sign it and give it to their primary physician(s) as part of their care folders. It can also be given to their attorneys.

Would this be a reasonable answer to that objection?

1. That seems quite reasonable

Suicide that is assisted should only be carried out if both parties accept it

2. But the question is, do you think that if this were included in the legislation,

it would satisfy the objections of people who think they might be pressured to pull the plug?

3. Financial concerns are pressure enough
