Viewpoint

I believe that a death in character is a death with dignity. I think we need to be well-informed of our options for end of life, so we can make choices that fit well with our values. Knowing that MAID is an available option reduces my fear of having to endure unbearable suffering and actually leads to an improved quality of life right now.
