How to Die in Oregon is a documentary about the state Oregon in which assisted suicide is legal. This documentary goes through different people and their stories about choosing to die. It explains how these individuals feel about assisted suicide, why they want to die, and the troubles they go through. Being helped with killing yourself might sound easy but for the patients it's hard because of the commitments they choose to make and not wanting their plans to fall through or changing their minds, et cetera. The theme of How to Die in Oregon is that success comes with failures and commitments. People go through hard times to achieve a goal and it's a tough journey. Things do nor come easily and people need to know that time and failure come along with that before a goal is reached. Cody, a female with cancer in Oregon wanted to die for many years; she had a plan. It was very hard for her to reach her goal because family members disagreed and even though she herself wasn't become better health wise, she was truly happy. Many things held her back from reaching her goal, which was dying because she no longer wanted to suffer. She could barely walk. She had trouble with breathing and intake of food and liquid. This theme connects to (text to world) older students who have career plans but their parents may disagree with it and force them to take a different route. Many students have many things holding them back and preventing them from doing what they want to do with their lives. This relates to the documentary because in both situations people are held back from following their goal. This video made me think of some questions. What are the reasons that people disagree with assisted suicide? What happens to people who help with suicide and they are not allowed to in Oregon?
