[Replying to an argument that assisted suicide is compassionate and respects people's right to autonomy]
The notion that meaning in life diminishes as automy diminishes or that the value of life is dependent upon its length is offensive.
I'm guessing that that lady has no idea that's what her words mean and that's how people living highly dependent lives are going to hear it. She probably thinks her words are "compassionate" too.
