To the editor:
This situation of a person dying with dignity has surfaced on TV news again and again. Let’s set a date and let a person with all their faculties use this privilege.
In my opinion, I am in my 99th year and I will like to exit on my own free will with the help of a medical doctor and family present. Why the need of critical pain to exit? At my age there is no more fun in life: I can hardly walk and see; most of my family and friends have passed away; living on old age pension is like slowly dying with critical mental pain. When my time has come to exit I will need to be referred to a medical doctor.
I will be most grateful and at 98 plus, it ought to be my decision, as a big girl, and not be accountable to any one else.
As the song says: “Let me go lover.” At my age I am in charge of my destiny.
