In response to Tim Schouten's letter on assisted dying:
I do not share Mr. Schouten's disdain for the language of euthanasia and I must insist that it is completely unreasonable to refer to medical assistance in dying as murder.
If you can't see the difference between taking someone's life against their will, Mr. Schouten, and helping a consenting individual declare "enough is enough," then assisted dying may not be right for you.
If you don't want assistance dying, then don't apply for it. And obviously that's just not how murder works.
One day, if the time is right, myself and/or others may ask for assisted dying and it will be our choices that make the call, not the subjective perceptions, limitations, and/or religious beliefs of other people.
