Having just lost a friend to kidney cancer... I am glad this man is out of what had to be horrific pain. Fark cancer.

Glad he had the choice to end his suffering.

He beat it twice.  No shame in saying no to a third round.  He didn't owe anybody anything.  fark cancer.

Safe from physical agony that the uninitiated cannot begin to fathom.

Cancer survivors follow a Warriors Code. I have already informed the missus that were I to get cancer, there are options that aren't on the menu. Enjoy the good time left then gtfo.

Do they get top-shelf pussy by way of recompense for the cancer?

Pat Burns, NHL coach, had the same cancer three times as well.  He just said "No treatment" and spent his final months with family.

10 US states are on a par with Colombia, as far as assisted death goes, so we got that going for us.

Man that sucks to have gone through all that. It would be bad enough at the end of a long life, but to have been fighting it since your 30s and having to call an end to it at 46, that's really drawing fate's short straw.

The only problem i have with how they have it now is they only allow it for very specific reasons. Full blown dementia is not on the list, even though it damn well should be. Also, it should be allowable once you hit 70 for any reason, and fark any "christian" who thinks forcing people to live in abject misery is better than ending things on your terms

From recent experience, I think the best you can hope for is being treated by a cute nurse.

My cousin had extremely serious cancer with many operations when he was around 16-17 years old in the mid 1990s. He went into a mode of hating everyone and everything. Because he is such a pacifist this went over really well with the women (and also, not a bad looking tall skinny guy) who felt sorry for him. I know he used this to his advantage, as he didn't care about anything at the time, due to the cancer and imminent death.

//I talk to that cousin at least once a week, he has a wife that doesn't want kids, a nice house and cars, and a decent work situation

I think the reasoning behind the dementia not being on the list is they want the soon to be dead to be of sound mind when the decision is made.  Europe is a little more lenient but they are still not going to help you just because you had a bad day.

This.

Voluntary assisted suicide should be considered morally okay by society. Why the hell would you want people to suffer unnecessarily?

I read a blog not too long ago about this guy who lost his first wife to her suicide, and he was fine with it after several decades of therapy since she was just constantly in pain.

Some yahoo doctor came on the blog to tell him how wrong he was and when pressed for answers it was the same old bullshiat: you're causing your loved ones pain, it's a sin, all this godawful crap that is just, like, his opinion, man.
