What are your thoughts on this tricky subject?

should assisted suicide be legal, especially when existence itself has become a cruel burden?

or is it a path for cowards and a desecration of life?
#2
Really tough issue for me. On one hand I support the right of people to choose to end their own lives. What kind of autonomy do you really have if you can't do that? On the other hand, you can bet that legalizing it would create an assisted suicide industry and I find that absolutely terrifying.

I don't agree with it.

Also there should have been a poll.

Should definitively be legal. Some people have lived years with pains and unbearable limitations and cannot kill themselves, and I think that everyone should be able to decide over their own existence if anything.
#7
Definitely legal, but not in private enterprise.

EDIT: And lol at the bias in the OP + poll.
#8
Yes, but it's not something that medical personnel should take lightly or on the spur of the moment.
#9
For. It's a mercy we grant animals ffs.

When viewed simply within the context of Medicine, yes. "first do no harm"...and in the context where this would be applied, it's possible that pain and suffering could be needlessly prolonged, which is the opposite of what medicine seeks to do.

I'm for it in extenuating circumstances. If it's an old guy with prostate cancer and he wants to die, By all means let him. BUt some wrist cutting piece of shit kid? Nah.

edit: Who66 said it much better than I did.
My sig? Nice.

I don't think it would be up to the kid anyway. If anything, it would be up to the parents who would obviously(hopefully) not euthanize their child.

Funny, you sound like the "piece of shit" here.

That hurts man.
I just mean that you shouldn't be able to die just because you WANT to die.

Why not? Not that suicidal people just decide on a whim, "Hmm, maybe I'll kill myself today. " but I'm just curious as to why you can't die if you want to.

i support it, and i also support the fact that it's illegal. there's ways doctors can make it subtle enough to slide the system easily. i'd hate for there to be 'free euthanasia when you kill 2 other family members' websites and 'euthanasist m.d.' titles

Yup. Why let people slowly die if they don't want to?

However, as outlined above, an industry in the thing would be a bit creepy. Just allowing doctors to give a lethal dose of morphine would be a start.

I agree with it for certain cases, particularly if someone has a terminal illness that involves a lot of pain or will, sooner or later, involve the losing of one's mental faculties.

Read up on what Terry Pratchett has to say about it, particularly his 'Dimbleby lecture' it's very interesting.

I meant to add this earlier, but I make my decision on this matter by thinking primarily through personal situations. If I were to become injured to the point of mental incapacity/braindead/"vegetation", I want my wife to have the ability to choose life in the same state or death for me, whichever is easier for her. I think that it is her right, and I would gladly give her that choice.

My God, it's full of stars!

It's legal here in the netherlands, and there is no 'industry' whatsoever, because there are very strict rules around euthanasia.

I am very much in favor of this.

or, conversely, if an illness spares cognitive faculties but little else, as with ALS.

People will then be able to choose an end over a painful anticipation of it. However, the one paying for it might start to want the person to do this. The one doing the deed might be morally and/or religiously against this. The person might not make the best of choices in deep pain and/or druggen on sedatives.

Sometimes people aren't right in the head when they make this decision. Drugs, booze, wrong meds, dating drew barrymore, etc...

I think terminal people should have the option.

It's already being kind of done anyway. When people are really sick they stop giving them food and only give water to aleviate dry lips, unless that person can get it themselves. Which they usually can't.

I find this to be euthansia of a sort and legal. But it's cruel in a way also.

Stupid poll is stupid. Just because you don't support Euthanasia doesn't mean 'You're pro life'. I don't support it but I believe people have the right to end their own life.

Depends.
If you are terminal and going to die in agony over the next 6 months (or any time frame), then hell yeah.

If there is NOTHING physically or medically wrong with you. NO. Boredom doesn't qualify.

If you just cost your company's shareholders $853 Million. NO
