I am for Physician-assisted suicide. This is different than euthanasia, remember that. This is because the person who will do it is terminally ill, so they will die anyways. The only difference is they don't have to suffer, and are able to be in control of their bodies, have autonomy. So...why not?

I'm all for people (who will die no matter what) doing so in the manner and at the time they wish. This is especially true in the case of those who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses who will die in short order and in very painful and undignified ways. Seems cruel to me to make people suffer unnecessarily.
Don't take me too seriously plz, i'm rarely on here sober

Did you know that 5% of terminal illnesses are misdiagnosed? And did you know that 7% of euthanizations have complications?

I did, actually, and I absolutely believe informing patients of that should be a part of them providing informed consent. I just also believe they should be given the choice.

Is it not curious that we can decide when our pet dog dies but not ourselves.
I largely blame religion for insisting our lives are beyond value.
The same religious movement is quite prepared to see suffering as ignobling.
