Letter: People just want to end their suffering

Published 7:01 am Sunday, December 11, 2016

Whatever you believe in, I can’t believe anyone would believe in suffering. Just because you have been given six months to live, and you actually live a year, doesn’t necessarily mean you have gained six more months to live. Likely you have six more months to suffer. My father once said he wished he could make the trip, so he could go see Dr. Kavorkian. These are not just people who want to commit suicide. They are people who have had enough suffering.
