I am really torn on this issue.
For me there would have to be extremely rigid criteria for this with absolutely accountable and firm checks to ensure this is done EVERY TIME to the full criteria.

I'm thinking the possibility of an elderly person, who is diabetic, has other health issues so on lots of medications.
Thereby a strong cost of same to the State

Perhaps no relatives around as such.
However is terminally ill.
I'm not sure in that case, if assisted dying was legal, could that person be then 'encouraged' to agree to have their life terminated.
For more economic reasons and not just personal ones.
Someone elderly made to feel a burden, could come to agree to have their life ended.

For me, just one of that scenario would be too many .
I'm not sure I could feel I could trust the system to ensure that was completely impossible.

…yeah, it’s a very layered thing, isn’t it …so it requires the most utmost of trust and that’s something that we’re not exactly in the company of atm…it’s something that I think has been lost over time and is often taking another dent…so I’m with you in everything you say, Joey…but atm, it’s something that is available but in a form that is only available to those wealthy enough, really…and that’s very wrong….but yeah, trust in so many areas is something in itself that has a an ever deteriorating health….

I am all for people having the choice when they want to die.
However there are some evil family members out there that would/could choose to speed it all up for their inheritance or to make sure the ill person didn’t have to go into a home and drain the profit from any property that would be left for them.
Personally I don’t understand going all that way so dignitas can end your life when you could do it yourself in the comfort of your own home.
