Is Suicide right or wrong?

If a person is in severe pain and his condition is terminal anyway, he/she should be able to decide that they have had enough, sad as that may be.

Which sort of raises another question...A few years ago, my Mum at 86 years of age, who was still living in her own apartment, [not far from my house] and under my care, had a fall. We called the Ambulance and she was transported to Hospital. A couple of days later, I got a call that there was no hope for her survival, and that the medical team needed my OK to switch off life support. 

Sorry to hear that Beecee. My mother in law still lives on her own, despite a few falls, at 89, and I've supported her decision to do so.

She's said she's determined to make it to 90. Tonight she was in especially good spirits and we joked about her making it to the point of technology having her live forever.

But the risks of living alone are understood.

Yeah my Mum was going to be forced into a nursing home and she gave them more then a piece of her mind and told them what to do. It was only that she decided to sell and move into a unit not far from me that they reconsidered.

Our health care system though also inspected the unit, and installed railings in the bathroom, and other areas to facilitate here getting around easier, and she never really needed to use the stove with delivery of those already made meals at a small cost.

The other side of that coin, a friend of mine was invited to not be resuscitated, by a doctor, because he was a heavy drinker/smoker...
