"Steven Seagal is a striking and somewhat boyishly handsome (often with ponytail) action star..."
Did he write that himself?!

Has your career made it difficult for you to trust medical professionals and hospitals?

How in the world did that person get a medical license or clear background checks to work at the VA? Was he using a false identity?

Physician assisted suicide is only legal in Oregon Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Montana, and even then there are a lot of qualifications that have to be met first. They give you medicine that you can take at home, so you don't spend your last hours at a hospital.
The other thing they described there (in the comment you responded to) is hospice, where they make people comfortable and give them enough pain medication to keep them that way. Unplugging someone from life support is not assisted suicide, it's stopping treatment. They really, really aren't the same.

I totally agree. I think it should be federally legal and a part of all doctors' training. Its simply the humane thing to do in end-of-life situations.
