I think there are many terms being thrown about in this debate that serve only to polarize opinion. Terms like “sanctity of life” and “right to die” and “culture of death” and “death with dignity.” Oy vei they make my head hurt. In the end something is going to take us out of this world and introduce us to whatever comes after. With some luck the events leading up to our death will start to unfold much later in life. When these last of our dominos start to fall, I think all of us would insist on the right to put together our coda on our own terms. And the last thing any of us would want is some politician or bureaucrat or cleric lurking around intent on setting the terms and conditions under which we may greet death.
