    in this country alone not even world wide....

    I am a chronic pain patient and when the pain is constant from waking to sleeping (if you can) it becomes almost its own entity that lives in your mind...it eats your soul while whatever is causing the pain eats your body....and nothing works...pain pills, even very strong ones in high doses have minimal effect ......though without them I'd have eaten my gun years ago.....

    at least meds help mitigate the worst, or at least make you care a little less.

    When it never stops, I well understand the desire to make it stop by whatever means nesc, even if that is death.  I hope I never get to that point again myself but I do think there should be a legal and less messy method than splattering my cerebellum over the paneling........

    As to the specific case of a child making the decision, not too sure there, but for an adult there should be an option for medically assisted suicide.....
