Meurent Plus Vite, Putain!

Which is French (I hope) for Die Faster, Whore!

France should allow doctors to “accelerate the coming of death” for terminally ill patients, a report to President Francois Hollande recommended Tuesday.

Hollande referred the report to a national council on medical ethics which will examine the precise circumstances under which such steps could be authorised with a view to producing draft legislation by June 2013.

If the legislation is in accord with an individual's expressed desire to end his/her pain and suffering, I'm cautiously supportive; if, however, it is done to anyone who hasn't explicitly expressed such a desire, then I do not support it.
