Why are we still arguing about this in 2017, it continues in Canada, in Australia an many more developed countries. It's our right, we don't even let animals go through such pain, Why? Are we so frightened of death, that we can't allow anyone to deliver it.

“I’m going to die anyway. It’s a question of whether I die with or without suffering and on my own terms or not” – Noel Conway
Noel Conway, retired college lecturer, 67, from Shrewsbury, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a form of motor neurone disease, in November 2014. His condition is incurable and he is not expected to live beyond the next 12 months.
By JON PARELES Chuck Berry, who with his indelible guitar licks, brash self-confidence and memorable songs about cars, girls and wild dance parties did as much as anyone to define rock ’n’ roll’s potential and attitude in its early years, died on Saturday. He was 90.
The St. Charles County Police Department in Missouri confirmed his death. Mr. Berry died at his home near Wentzville, Mo., about 45 miles west of St. Louis. The department said it responded to a medical emergency and he was declared dead after lifesaving measures were unsuccessful.
While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they knew themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.
Miners killed Brendon Grylls and Dutton never said a word. (Dutton since WA election says business should stick to knitting when he doesn't agree with them)
Outgoing WA Nationals leader Brendon Grylls knew he was in for an almighty fight when he made a bold push to slap BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto with a tax hike that would cost the mining giants about $3 billion a year.
Grylls expected political bruises. But he never expected to lose his seat.
The stunning downfall of Western Australia's best retail politician – the biggest scalp of Labor's crushing defeat of the Liberal government – highlights how effective a six-month, anti-mining tax campaign waged by the miners really turned out to be.
Grylls wanted to lift the mining levy from 25¢ per tonne to $5 per tonne. And initially he found support from an electorate cynical about big business and agreeable to companies paying more tax.
But by polling day on March 11 it became apparent the fear fanned over potential job losses and risk to investment in WA had worked.
