"For hundreds of years, men and women have had the right to life; but many are now searching for the right to die. Assisted suicide and euthanasia is one of the world’s most controversial topics. Many people think it is only fair that one may choose their own destiny even if that means death. Opposers of assisted suicide and euthanasia use the argument that every life is special, and should not be taken even with the person's permission. The government should put laws in place to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia so that men and women can die with dignity.

"I had a choice for my operation. I could have gone to Bangor, to Portland or to Boston. I did have a choice, but I opted to go to the hospital in my home town, in the St. John Valley, Northern Maine Medical Center. I have not stopped thanking my lucky stars ever since.

Our Democracy has now endured for 237 years: basically due to the separation of Church & State in our Constitutional First Amendment. We had wise forefathers. We have one state and many different religions, all free to practice and believe what they want side-by-side, protected by the First Amendment.
