    Re: assisted sucide right or worng

    I'm guessing your talking about euthanasia?

    I'm on the fence. If it was a loved one, I'd want them to fight to the very end, however, do I have a right to say that when it is a terminal illness, suffering and in pain? Should we deny someone who is going to die anyway, the right to end their suffering?

    I would like to say that it is the persons choice, therefore it's right in some situations. But again, I personally don't believe in it, but I don't know what it's like to live in pain all the time or to know that your going to die anyway. I hear sometimes of terminally ill patients going overseas to get it done because they can't stand the pain any more (currently it's illegal in Australia), I can only imagine what their family is going through

    I think euthanasia is right when it 100% certain your going to die. Why should you have to go thru the suffering. A Dog or horse gets a nice end when its suffering, why shouldnt we?

    Re: assisted sucide right or worng

    back to the original question this is literally in my textbook at school i want you to tell me what you think about it!

    Dale and Mike are twin brothers that spent their entire lives looking out for eachother. When they turned 70 Mike was diagnosed with cancer. Doctors gave him about 6 months. They didn't want him to suffer so together they wrote and signed a note that they decided to commit suicide. Dale broke 20 tranquilizers into Mikes dinner, an hour later he checked in on him and Mike was still alive. Dale panicked he took a .38 caliber revolver and shot his brother! He then took a handfull of tranquilizers himself, but did not die. What exactly do you think of this? I mean he ended up doing 5 years for 1st degree man slaughter? Do you think he got what he deserved?

    Re: assisted sucide right or worng

    i believe it is okay is some situations, but also very wrong in others. it definitely depends on the situation.
    example in a wrong way: someone's friend is incredibly depressed and they help them commit suicide
    Example in a good way: there is someone who is a human vegtable and is living in complete physical pain for no reason, then yes it's okay.

    People should have control over their own lives.
    Even if that means the power to end them.
    It's really none of our business to tell another grown person what is best for them, especially in a matter so grave as to have them contemplating taking their own life in the first place.

    Re: assisted sucide: right or wrong?

    I'm agree with the majority here; People have the right to choose whatever they want, whether it be suicide by another or otherwise. If you ask me it's kinda like respecting their last wishes, you know? I really can't see myself doing something as such, but it would still be like killing yourself. You just don't have the guts to do it yourself, so you ask someone else to do it for you. Cowardly, perhaps.

    Re: assisted sucide: right or wrong?

    First off, I say all humans should die, I mean we're already on a path of our own destruction so YAY!!!

    Anywho I see nothing wrong with helping someone if they wanna die, let them it's THEIR fate and if they ask you to help, by means do so. Let them be happy their own way. Even though we humans deserve to suffer.....totally contradicted myself, lol.
