Right to Die Bill

At present this Bill is passing through Parliament, but members of the House of Lords are weary and sceptical regarding this Bill.

The Bill would apply to people in England & Wales who were suffering badly but still had the means to make decisions.

This Bill seems perfectly sound. A person owns their life, don't they? Therefore, they should possess the means to terminate it if they choose. IMO, it's not humane for someone to spend their last days in suffering. Of course, one should account for the mental capacity to choose suicide. If somebody has such a capacity, then they must be free to act upon their volition.
