Imagine you have just found out you are going to die within three months. Recently the questions have been changed from, ³What am I going to do with the rest of my life?² to ³When should I kill myself?² With painful and crippling diseases such as AIDS and cancer, and Alzheimers along with doctors such as Dr. Kavorkian, , some people are choosing death over life. Doctor assisted suicide has been a very controversial subject in the past few years. Some states such as Oregon have passed laws which allow doctors to prescribe lethal drugs to patients who have less than six months to live. (Hendin 1) Other states have taken the opposite side. I believe that if you are able to reason and think rationally you should decide whether to live or die. If not the people who know you best should make the decision. d If you are ever in a situation where you know you will soon die the choice whether or not to kill yourself should be your own. I believe that doctor-assisted suicide should not be controlled by the government but should be a personal choice based on the individual. Many people could not imagine living in a hospital bed for the remainder of their lives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
