Assisted suicide

Did any of you see Terry Pratchett's programme on assisted suicide  the other week?  It actually showed a man committing suicide at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland.  I found it quite traumatic and I think Terry Pratchett did too.  At the end of the programme I thought that I would certainly not want to put my wife through the process of seeing me die, but then later on, I thought would I want  t to put my wife through the pain of watching me die of motor neurone disease like those who had attended the clinic in the programme?  So I'm afraid I started watching the programme being undecided about assisted suicide and ended also undecided.
