Canada has just taken a big step towards legalizing doctor-assisted suicide.

http://mic.com/articles/140861/canadian-prime-minister-justin-trudeau-moves-to-legalize-doctor-assisted-suicide?utm_source=policymicFB&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=WHFacebook&utm_content=inf_4_285_2&tse_id=INF_fa9451b6aa0f46e29ee7ae5f3d3d7b58#.HrXgjmjUc

An awful lot of Canadians have experienced and accompanied their loved ones through difficult moments at the end of their lives...Many more have had difficult conversations with their aging parents, for example, to understand their wishes. And I think the Supreme Court clearly said that it's a violation of Canadians' fundamental rights to have the current legislation in place.

Is assisted suicide a violation of the laws of man&god?


I'm all for it. Get 'em (the weak and old) outta here.

Despite being ever so #don'ttreadonme, I don't think it should be legal for folks with severe or highly variable depression, because the control a patient typically requesting it is (usually) diminished in those circumstances.

Or in the least, in those with mental illness, there should be a waiting period until their condition eases in some way, or they do it themselves.

Suicide should always be illegal. We have to make those people's lives harder afterwards if they attempt it, because that's just wrong

I think that in most of the places where euthanasia/assisted suicide is legal, the patient is judged to be fit to make that decision by two different doctors. That and it's usually only acceptable if the person's suffering is unbearable and/or incurable. Which I think is a fair enough way of approaching it.

I just read that in Switzerland it's apparently only illegal to assist someone in suicide (even if your not a doctor) if you're helping out of self-interest.

PC gamers probably should have the mental health checks bypassed though tbh

Buying my PC was, in retrospect, the point at which any hope I had for having a happy, sex-filled life completely dissolved.

Being a PC gamer also already implies that you're of the highest caliber of rationality, as it is clearly the superior medium for gaming

i voted for the PC gamers option

I'm conflicted about it. On the one hand, people should have every right to decide when their life ends and how it ends if they so choose, and there's no reason for them not to have medical assistance in making that decision in a clean, painless fashion. On the other hand, I feel like this opens the door to a lot of insurance companies going "Well, the disease you have has a very high mortality rate. We could help, but given that the odds aren't in your favor and it would be quicker and cheaper for you to accept death, your insurance isn't going to cover any medical procedures to fight it, even the basic ones we used to."

I want to be in favor of it, because I don't see any reason it shouldn't be an option, but it has to be very tightly regulated, because once it's legal, it's just asking to be abused.

by the time im in my 60's i'll be doing ever drug in existence, recreationally.

life is boring, and i sure would want to kill my self if i was on my death bed, in a hospital.

if i only had a few months/years to live, and i knew i was never going to recover, i'd just kill myself.

Someone should just invent a home suicide kit so doctors won't have to get into the morality of it.

Sell them right beside the pregnancy and Aids tests.

There are probably more effecient ways to do it

What about "the pill" u see in spy movies.
Where the spy gets caught and eats the suicide pill so nobody can innterogate him

That's a real thing right???

it's not that easy to get hold of and I wouldn't recommend the easiest way to do so

well with a knife and socket you shit yourself

but getting cyanide requires a lot of gold and idk if it still works

anyway it's probably best not to discuss technique as I don't want a ban

I'm totally for it, whatever the situation, though I do think there should be a waiting period for depressed patients in the case that they are cured
