    A recent letter to the editor on providing choice at the end of life (Saturday, April 13) continues the confusion that death with dignity purports. I think everyone should have the opportunity to die with dignity, as every person deserves respect. Under the proposed legislation in Vermont, the individual must be able to self administer the fatal dose of medication. A standard English dictionary defines suicide as the “intentional taking of one’s own life.” So what is really going on here? Is this another instance of redefining words that have had clear meaning? Or is this questionable legislation another piece of negativity defying hope and reason?
