One Response to “Controversial assisted suicide advertising boards now on American highways”

    Concerning the Final Exit Network’s billboards:
    They have taken a very private matter and made a advertisement to promote taking your own life. This is very irresponsible. If a terminally ill person wants to go home and take a bunch of pain medication to end their life that is their business. We don’t need any laws to legislate this. However, to ask a nurse or doctor to help a person to kill themselves is violating the rights of the nurses and doctors. I have worked with hospice patients for many years and I can attest to the fact that people can be made comfortable at the end of life. If someone is suffering then they are not being treated adequately and should seek another doctor or get someone to advocate to the doctor for them. Hospice is very good for this and doesn’t cost the patient. I do not believe in euthanasia. This is a slippery slope with a huge potential for abuse. I had a family once who wanted me to keep pushing morphine on a sleeping patient. I refused. They had been in the room for two days and I believe they were tired of waiting for the patient to die. This is exactly the kind of thing I am talking about when it comes to euthanasia. Suicide affects the whole family and should never be promoted on a billboard. I know this website denies that it is suicide but you cannot change what is the truth.
