Should Assisted Suicide Be Legalised?

Yes

It was easy for me to come to this conclusion. Locked-in syndrome is a condition where the entire body, not even the head can move - with the exception of the eyes. Yet they feel everything and remain conscious. If I had that, I would want more than anything to die.

Side: yes

Would I be able to tickle you to death ;)

Or maybe I can tell you an endless stream of stupid puns, thus forcing you to roll your eyes to the point where you eventually wear them out and then even your eyes wont work ;)

I would pray every minute that the tickling would kill me - and wish to be dead when it didn't.

Side: yes

I've heard of that before- what a horrible situation to be in. I would want to exit, too.

In your case assisted suicide should be mandatory because you have absolutely nothing to offer the world.

Yes. There would have to be some forms of control, e.g. documented consent from the person wanting to commit suicide in whatever medium they're able to communicate in, multiple witnesses to confirm consent at the time of the assisted suicide, etc., but I can see no reason why it shouldn't be legalised.

I believe that assisted suicide should be legalized. Sometimes in our pursuit to save another's life, we forget that when they do not wish for their life to be saved, then it will not be saved. We cannot assume that it is within our power to tell another person that they must live, they must endure the shadows that haunt their soul, the ills which will cause them a slow and painful death. One must also keep in mind that if someone truly wants to commit suicide, and in their minds and hearts they foresee no other alternative, then they will take action on their desires. This simply means, if they want to kill themselves badly enough, they will do it, no matter what your contributions to the contrary. Why should we deny someone their right to end their own life? But rather, ensure that their passage from this world is painless? Shakespeare once wrote "But that the dread of something after death, the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns puzzles the will, and makes us rather bear those ills we have, than fly to other we know not of? Thus, conscience does make cowards of us all."

Yes. People have the absolute right to prevent or end suffering. If anything happens to me, I would want to die and be with Yeshua.

Why assist in suicide when you can just die yourself 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 No You
