Interesting - I've read these kinds of claims before. I agree with his children that when the time comes, the author of the article will change his mind. It's not easy to kill oneself in cold blood, even when one is severely ill or disabled, never mind when one is in excellent health. What I object to is this sentence: 'We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.' This is the perpetual sentiment of the well and it reveals exactly what they think of the ill: enfeebled, ineffectual, pathetic.' This is what we are up against.
