Considering some of the posts here on old age and senility, I'd like to pose a question to all the folks here. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with say a degenerative neurological disease i.e. alzheimers, would you want the option to end your life with dignity? Basically, assisted suicide. Or would you rather let nature take its course and slowly lose your mind and let your body follow? Personally, I don't want to fade away slowly. Be it from disease or old age. I'd rather go out on my feet with my faculties. I believe this is going to be a forefront issue in the next 20 years as the population ages and people just sit around in their old age. I don't know about you but slowly fading away in an old folks home sounds like a fate worse than death itself.
