Sup Travellers?! Brittany Maynard is going to commit suicide in a a few weeks from now and not one institution is trying to stop her.

The 29-year-old and her husband mutually decided that the best thing for her to do is to commit suicide aided by a doctor.

Her reason for ending her own life is simple; she has glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the deadliest type of brain cancer there is. She was told that patients live an average of six months with the condition, and those final months are VERY VERY painful. 

Brittany didn't want to experience the type of gruesome pain that comes with GBM nor did her husband so they moved to Oregon one of the five states that allow doctor-assisted suicide, so that she could choose her own passing. 

I'm against suicide but should she have to endure all that pain to just die in the end? I mean --- she could make a miraculous recovery and live healthy for the rest of her life but the chances of that happening are pretty slim.

What do you think? Is suicide right in this case?

Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
