Boston Legal’s “Right To Die”

In tonights Season 4, Episode 16 of Boston Legal, The Mighty Rogues, Shirley wants to end her sick father’s suffering from Alzheimer’s and asks Alan to argue on her behalf.

And when requests were made for administering of a morphine drip, I was reminded of a conversation that I had with Greg in early summer of 1994 when he first told me of and showed me his ‘morphine drip’ prescription.  He passed on 22 August 1994.

When, at the end, and during their ritual ‘quality time’ together that Denny Craig discussed with Alan that should he be in a similar situation as that of Shirley’s father that is his wish and request that Alan be the one to ‘pull the plug’ … I thorughly understood.  And empathized.

I am a firm believer in one’s ‘right to die’!
