Sounds about right

I found it interesting that almost half of patients who were prescribed physician-assisted death never used it. That means to me that many just want to have some control over their fate, over pain, etc. Makes good sense to me.

Nobody wants a lengthy death consisting of weeks of gasping for air, writhing in pain, and pooping in bed.
