    I'd rather that they tackle the "right to die" issue.

It is an interesting one for multiple reasons.

    Some states have it where a terminally person that is a resident can be "expedited" or "put down" so that they can go before terminal illness finishes the job.

I did not realize that it was fully allowed anywhere. I know among the problems is that not many doctors are interested in doing it because it violates their oath and code of ethics to "do no harm".

I am generally in support of the idea, but I think working on it legally will be challenging to just not legalize state sponsored suicide. To say nothing for the political conflicts that will happen and be converted into more outlandish conspiracies.

    Most don't have this.

"As of 2021, there are just a handful of U.S. states with "right to die" laws. Those states are California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. In these states, it is legal for terminally ill patients to receive lethal medication from their doctors."

This needs to become nationwide, thus giving people the option if they so choose.

It would still be a matter of choice of the patient if they are of sound mind and failing health, or their legal advocate if the patient's mind is no longer sound.

Full confidentiality respected for those that would choose it, no media, etc.
