    The ability to make my own personal choices in life is extremely important to me. This is especially true at the end of life. This is only one of the reasons I fully support choice of options at the end of life.

    Placing personal choice in the hands of others who do not know/respect our wishes or who have no personal connection to us is not a good idea. I think that, for the most part, individuals know what is best for them. No one understands the concerns, passions, fears and challenges that ordinary people deal with every day as well as those individuals themselves and that includes end of life choice.

    Any legislation providing end of life choice must include real choice and real safeguards and protections for those who may wish to use it. Choices along an inclusive continuum are good and legal protection as well as common sense only support and enhance that goal.
