Stories like this receive way too little attention. A cancer patient in the UK seriously considered assisted suicide, but is now very glad he didn’t do the deed and opposes the Joffe Bill that would legalize Oregon-style assisted suicide. I know of several stories like this, including my last hospice patient Bob (I was a volunteer), who died of ALS and who wanted to go to Kevorkian but ended up so grateful that he didn’t. (With his permission, I have told Bob’s story in several articles and in my books.)
Good for the BBC in publicizing this man’s opinion.
