  4. And yet another oh-so-worthy cause. Your A-Z challenge is going to take you and your readers on a great journey.

  5. A campaign for such laws went through our Scottish Parliament a few years ago, promoted by an MSP who had MS. It was defeated and she has since died, but another MSP has taken it up in her memory and it is being discussed again. I’m in favour, though I understand why it is controversial.

  6. I couldnt be more in agreement with this particular cause. That a terminally ill person can choose to help their dog to suffer no more, but not themselves is an absurdity.

    • It’s a shame that we have the option to end our pets suffering but we don’t do that for a human being. I think it’s a human right to be able able to choose death with dignity.

  7. This has to be as controversial a topic as abortion – so many ways it can be misused. And yet, I find myself so strongly in favour of it, having seen my great grandmother suffer for months with a brain tumor before finally passing.

    Perhaps one day…
