anything under the influence of pain or morphine or in the isolation of an ICU."

"The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government."... Thomas Jefferson

"There is no quality of life when the patient is dead."... a nurse

"the terminally ill are a class of persons who need protection from family, social, and economic pressures, and who are often particularly vulnerable to such pressures because of chronic pain, depression, and the effects of medication."... from the State of Alaska's arguments that assisted suicide is dangerous. Subsequently (Sampson et al. v State of Alaska, 09/21/2001), the Alaska Supreme Court ruled unanimously that state laws punishing assisted suicide as manslaughter are to be upheld.

"Beware movements that feel the need to resort to feel-good euphemisms to hide the reality of their agendas and goals. Assisted suicide is suicide. The term is descriptive and accurate. And when it is legalized, it amounts to state-approved suicide. Let’s deal with that reality and stop the pretense."... Wesley J. Smith, 2013.
