Regarding The Associated Press news story “Mercy killer shown same mercy from judge” (March 30 and TribLIVE.com): How appalling that George Sanders had to make the excruciating decision to kill his own wife. He truly must have loved her very much and should not have even been charged with a crime.

Why can't we do for our beloved family members what we are permitted to do for our pets?

There should be euthanasia/suicide clinics (along the lines of abortion clinics) that people can utilize. There is a difference between “giving up” and knowing when one has had enough.
