Euthanasia for people is an act of mercy. Each hospice worker reassures us that the end is near...but it can't come quick enough after 3 days of watching breaths, grimacing at his involuntary gurgling sounds. We know he is drowning. There are three states that allow legal euthanasia: Montana, Washington and Oregon. It's been said by so many people in the field of hospice: We wouldn't let our pet suffer like this, so why can't we demonstrate compassion by saying a prayer, holding his hand and give him something to end his suffering? Everyone would be relieved. Waiting sucks.
