Oh .......

Yes,I had voted he has the right,but with mixed feelings because have to be very careful about this,I do understand him and his family,but I also think,what if?He could get out of it?What if he could find the willpower?

I think that as long as a person makes the decision in a lucid state of mind, then the decision should be respected. However, the authorities must be sure that the person's family has also agreed to this to avoid problems further down the road.
