I’ve watched four parents (parents and in-laws) go through the process of death. My MIL said it best - “they give us drugs to prolong our lives but they cannot improve the QUALITY of our lives.” (Paraphrasing). When my dog was dying from a brain tumor we didn’t hesitate when her life was beginning to be affected in horrid fashion. We released her from pain. Why do we do less for beloved family members? Why must they suffer? Dying of natural causes is one thing, but when someone has a painful terminal disease they should have the CHOICE to continue if not.
