    The right to die is similar to abortion. My sister is a nurse in Texas, and women who will die/suffer/injured, or were rap*d should make the decision for their own bodies.

    Celebrate his life……once you’re dead, you are COMPLETELY irrelevant.

    I am so glad to live in Oregon with the right to make the choice of my time to die. To recognize that the choice is gentle, caring, and mine.

    Last Flight Home is a wonderful movie. It shows us how important it is to accept death as the ultimate part of life. When death is immanent, we need to be able to die gracefully. Mr. Timoner was a fortunate man.

    We passed a compassionate dying law in Oregon 15 years ago or so. We got folks who moved there for the option to make that choice. Interestingly, many decided against it, but they were able to find peace knowing they could.

    The right to end my life is one of the biggest reasons I have stayed in Oregon.

    Like 450. It’ll be a sad day when Trevor leaves the Daily Show.

    My body my choice to go as I choose fit. No person other than myself should control my choice to live and transition as I feel is my right. This is a wonderful conversation about true freedom of choice and to keep one’s dignity till the end. Thanks for doing this documentary on this topic.

    I am short of words to describe Trevor’s ability to conduct a decent interview and allow his guess to express themselves. Once again excellent interview Trevor I feel like I watched the movie already. Keep doing what you are doing my Guy.

    Interesting to hear there are some states in America who have this compassionate law. I’ve never heard it spoken about anywhere except in controversial terms. I’ve always believed in it. When one no longer have quality of life through severe illness, and you are of sound mind to choose to go gently, it should be your choice.

    I would love a conversation about Death Doulas, as well. I think having a Death Doula help prepare one for transitioning from life to passing could be a great help. I watched a video on it on here by Caitlin Doughty. her channel is ask a mortician
