Do you think people should have the right to refuse medical assistance near the end of their lives?
Asked at Hy-Vee, 3504 Clinton Parkway on December 13, 2004
“Yes. I just think it’s your right to choose. I’ve seen too many people suffering toward the end of their life.”
“I certainly believe in individuals giving it some thought beforehand. People should be able to make certain choices about life assistance by creating a living will.”
“Yes. When people have had a complete life and are in pain or their life is ending, they deserve to have some control over that. It increases the possibility of being able to die with dignity.”
“Yes, as long as someone is not refusing it for them. As long as they can make the decision for themselves, they should be able to.”
