I do appreciate this piece but my orientation is different.

I see it as ALS having already taken her life… she was done, this was just ending it on her own terms instead of letting a (currently) inevitable suffering continue.

With that said, we do need to be careful about assisted suicide. It should be when there’s no hope of a recovery in the time that you’re expected to live. In a case like Betsy’s, yes. Someone who just doesn’t like the thought that it may be another 1–2 years before there’s a treatment, or doesn’t want to create a financial burden by staying alive? That’s not so likely.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
