I just do not trust government and doctors enough to discern a reasonable case from a stupid one.
That is an important point.
There have been many suicide cases which could have easily been avoided through proper meds.
Saying that, I understand the hesitancy with regards to psychotrophic meds. The fear of being a "drugged-out zombie"
I fought for several years, refusing those meds, then had to go through mental hell until I finally got on the right stuff(for me)
It's different for different people of course, and I'm not a zombie.
Good doctor I guess.
EDIT: I would like to add that not all requested euthanasia is appropriate for the reasons I described above.
However, for clinicaly terminal individuals, having a clear and indisputable terminal condition, AND with severe pain, I do support the idea.
