As a Hispanic myself I see many Hispanics become a receiver for racism. The first Example is the Fact that if you are Hispanic You are instantly though of a Mexican no matter if you are or not. The second issue is that if you are Hispanic the first question you may get is, "Are you legal?" What kind of question is that.

katieadams
Messi-09

Being able to choose our time of death is not our choice and is not a right which we have. All humans are of great and equal worth and should be respected by others and protected by society. Euthanasia/physician assisted suicide directly undermines our society's commitment to care for the dying. Instead of turning away from natural death and suffering we must learn to embrace them both and not resort to an unnatural and immoral means of ending a life!...
