Deaths Sometimes Slow and Painful

Bradley Mattes   |   April 03, 2017

A few states have legalized assisted suicide.  To hear them tell it, there’s no downside to these laws.  They merely provide a peaceful death to those who no longer want to live.  But there’s more to the story.  It turns out the drugs to kill these patients aren’t as effective as hoped.  Some are too harsh, burning mouths and throats to the point of screaming out in pain.  The deaths of many others are stretched out for long periods of time — in one case over thirty hours.  In a Dutch study, some physicians had to intervene and outright kill the patients with injections.  Laws here don’t require supervision by doctors, so when things go wrong, they’re on their own.  Who knows what’s happening in America when the goal is intentional killing.
