VSED is becoming both more accepted in the medical community and better understood by the public.


VSED is an important end-of-life exit option that supplements MAID. Not only is MAID unavailable in most U.S jurisdictions but also even in the seven jurisdictions (CA CO DC HI OR VT WA) where it is affirmatively authorized, statutes impose strict eligibility conditions that exclude many dying patients.

It seems to be a good sign that opponents (and here) of end-of-life liberty are paying more attention to VSED. Presumably, they would not both to attack it unless it had acquired a reasonable prevalence.
