Assisted suicide #3

End of life situations are complex and complicated: sometimes they occur in a natural progression of illness or a particular condition. Sometimes they are hastened or precipitated, as in the case of Nancy Wise.
Views on whose interests are being served in such cases are also complex and complicated – here’s my third AS haiku:

I can’t bear your pain:
So hard, so undignified.
I’ll help you to die.
