    Woman who wanted to be euthanized.......

    Quote:
    PARIS, France (CNN) -- A French woman severely disfigured by facial tumors has been found dead just two days after a court rejected her request for an assisted suicide.

    Medical examiners were Thursday looking into the death of 52-year-old Chantal Sebire -- whose case had prompted nominally Roman Catholic France to reexamine its stance on euthanasia -- to determine whether anything illegal had taken place.

    It was not immediately clear how Sebire died.

    Sebire had suffered from esthesioneuroblastoma, a rare and incurable form of cancer for eight years, developing tumors in her nasal passages and sinuses that distorted her face and caused her nose and eyes to bulge.

    Sound off: What do you think about euthanasia?

    The woman from Dijon, in eastern France, said drugs were ineffective against the excruciating pain caused by the condition and there was no reason doctors should not be permitted to hasten her death.

    Assisted suicide is illegal in France, however. The law permits only passive euthanasia -- removing feeding and hydration tubes when a person is in a coma, or inducing a coma and then removing the tubes.

    Sebire's lawyer had tried to convince a French court that it was "barbaric" to put her through the ordeal of dying slowly in an artificial coma, something that could take up to two weeks while her three children looked on in anguish.

    If you're kept in a room against your will, it's wrongful and illegal and your captors can be held accountable.

    IF somone wants out of 'the room called life', by all means, show them to the door

    I remember reading this story a month ago. I dont see why it's such a problem for people wanting to die. It's their choice.

    The disease this woman had was horrific. I hope no one posts up a picture of her, it's terrible. I nearly lost my lunch when I saw it. You've been warned.

    Agh, its not THAT bad. Its more interesting - when you see her, you think of Sloth from the Goonies and wonder how she managed to look almost identical. Curious.

    (No, but seriously, it does just look like hollywood makeup, and you cant believe its actually real!)

    Darryl Sutter wears makeup?

    Church doors are always open to whoever wants to enter, but they're only open to those who are willing to be sheep. The service of God is really service to those self-proclaimed holy men who hold the franchise. Accumulating material grandeur is the goal, not the improvement of the people's lives. Independent thought is discouraged. Raising the individual up is not part of the plan; keeping the flock docile, distracted, and deluded is what it's all about.

    If someone wants to end their life, that is their business and theirs alone. The state should keep out of it.

    If a physician wants to assist that is also their business and not the states.

    I'm just here for the intelligent conversation.
    Isn't it sad that assisted suicide (or like that guys case in the prairies) grants you more prison time than killing or raping someone here in Canada?

    1 year probation for paralyzing a dude, and 10 years for putting someone out of their misery, seems fucked up to me.

    it's not "push them through that door", its show them where the door handle is. and if they can't turn it themselves, lend a hand.

    stories like these are heartwrenching. one can never understand the anguish these people have to go through in life. it makes me truly, truly appreciate my life.

    no one ever said life was fair.

    Like avocet said, "they" have made the decision to go through the door, and the state should not stand in the way, nor penalize those that choose to help.
