  1. i personalty feel that giving some one in the early stages of Alzheimer’s the right to choose how they want to die. i went thru watching my mother die from this disease. i know she wouldn’t want her family to see this. also she would of been horrified to see the person she turned into & would not of wanted to see this happen to her. right to die with dignity should be left up to that person when they are able to make that when they are still able to – not a court of law. they stick their nose into our personal business way to much. we let our pets die with dignify why can’t we make that choice for our self.
