Lethal Injection - Dignified or Cruel?
AMomandHerBlog links to the following article about legislation aimed at legalizing active euthanasia:
The Death with Dignity Act would allow Vermonters with six months to live to take a lethal dose of prescribed medications. There must be two physicians who sign off on the illness as terminal, and the patient must voluntarily make a written request for the medication.
"It scares me to think I might have taken that option," said Maureen Kelly, who is opposed to the legislation. Twenty years ago, Kelly suffered severe brain damage in a car accident that left in her in the hospital for three years -- including nine months in a coma. While she may have considered using lethal medication, she's glad she did not.
It is ironic that at the same time the Daily Telegraph
and other media outlets are reporting that execution by lethal injection is "cruel".
