New Zealand Labour MP Maryan Street wants, among other things, to protect from prosecution family members and health professionals, who’ve been directed, by those who still have their wits about them, to put them out of their misery. To euthanise them, like we would a much-loved family dog or cat….But who carries the burden of guilt for prematurely ending the life of someone like Mum, who decided they should die like a dog if they get to the state where they can’t remember their daughter’s name?
