To the Editor:
I am writing in support of Ballot Question 2. Taking a world view, there is no reason why the infirm should be forced to live on against their will, suffering needlessly and using resources needed by our burgeoning population.
Society needs to take a different attitude towards the inevitable. Let us not use the word “suicide” but rather “self de-termination.”
Those who for reasons of their own do not want this privilege would not be required to use it. But those of us who want the comfort of knowing that we have control over our own lives should be allowed to do so.
