The Right to Die: It's My Choice

The passion for and against suicide had its ebbs and flows over time, where it has became a controversial topic and is still being debated today.

With the advances in today's medicine, human life expectancies grow higher and higher each day. If an organ gives up and ceases to function, transplants are a viable option in many cases. New medicines and treatments for everything from cancer to heart disease and beyond are being developed and with this come the chances that the quality of life being sustained is far from pleasurable. In my opinion, what is or is not acceptable needs to be up to the person living with the illness and should not be left up to those in court houses around the country. Each and every person's tolerance to pain differs as much as the pattern of freckles on a person face or the number of hairs on his or her head. Only the ill can truly understand the magnitude of what they are going through. If given a chance to decide, while they are still competent, how they would like to handle the end of their lives, many would admit that they want to die with dignity and without pain and suffering. "About 70 percent of Americans - twice as many as fifty years ago - say doctors should be allowed to help end an incurably ill patient's life when that request is made by the patient and the patient's family." More and more people are beginning to feel that the end of life should be up to the individual and that a doctor should be allowed to assist the dying person with their final wishes." ("Issue guides: right," )

Currently there are three states in which doctor assisted suicide is legal: Montana, Washington, and Oregon. A doctor may prescribe a lethal dose of drugs to end a life, if two doctors declare that the patient does in fact, have a terminal illness. Patients must make an oral request and a witnessed written request. Another oral request must be made 15 days later. The doctor is also required to inform the patient of his or her other options, such as hospice or pain management. The number of people who have taken advantage of this law is still very low and it appears that it is being very carefully utilized. The state of Oregon has only had 400 people take advantage of the issue in the eleven years that it has been legal. (Humphry, 2020) However, the AMA continues to oppose the issue and stands firm on the fact that doctors should only save lives and not end them. (O'Reilly, 2020)

When people think of doctor assisted suicide, one doctor in particular tends to come to mind and that is Dr. Kevorkian. He famously said, "Dying is not a crime". (Betzold, 1996) Before he was sentenced to prison where he spent a total of eight years on the charges of second degree murder, Dr. Kevorkian assisted as many as 130 people in the peaceful ending of their own lives. Patients had to fly to his home in Michigan in order to partake in his services. The doctor had designed an actual machine where the patient had to only pull a trigger, at which time a lethal dose of medication would be released. The media dubbed the machine the "death machine". As sinister as it may sound, the machine was very effective and was a welcome sight to many who were suffering from terminal illnesses. He first used the machine he designed in 1990 and on several occasions, he performed services from the back of his van, as he was constantly being watched. Although, Dr. Kevorkian wasn't a supporter or nor did he spearhead any organization in support of his cause, many have associated him with the movement. Dr. Kevorkian is now out of prison, but can no longer practice, due to his parole. (Humphrey, 2020)

With only three states in our country allowing the use of doctor assisted suicide, it is apparent that the debates will go on for many years to come. However, passing law in those three states is a huge step in allowing those of us who want to end our lives with dignity and peacefulness, to decide when we are ready to die. In our country, we have many rights and privileges. It is only fair that we also be given the right to know when we have fought a hard fight and are ready to move on. Hopefully one day, it will be more widely accepted, allowing everyone to decide how they would like to both live and die during a terminal illness.
