Elderly Suicide: More Than a Matter of Life and Death

“Suicide Is a Tragic Secret for the Elderly.” True, but think again. I would say Daniel Rosenthal chose the easiest way to go--a quick death. I am 84 and I have no intention of just wasting away in a nursing home. When I cannot function as a normal human being, out I go.

I have an idea that I hope will eventually be accepted by the civilized world: Let all of us who wish have hypodermic syringes filled with quick death, which we, ourselves, can inject in our veins.
