Academic or just haughty classroom admonitions against euthanasia were overtaken by a harrowing real-life story. The lesson (again): assisted suicide is not a life/death issue at all, but rather an issue of a shorter and better or longer and worse life.
Euthanasia and suicide are generally and mistakenly regarded as suspicious preferences for death over life. In fact voluntary ending of life may well be based on rational preferences for shorter and better lives over really unbearably longer lives.
