The difference is, all three times, every medical effort was made to save me. Physicians, insurance companies always thought that way.. They put the patient first an worried about the cost later. Adding legalized PAS (physician assisted suicide) in, could be the last building block in the destruction of that system. ... When the cost factor is added in, our odds get rapidly worse.
