Yes, assisted suicide should be legalized.
No, assisted suicide should not be legalized.
There's no reason why we can't strictly regulate it so that it's not misused.
Yes. It ought to be legal. Only a person can know his/her own life best, if they deem it is time to end their life no one has a right to stop them. People will suicide whether or not suicide or assisted suicide were legal. I'd rather people had the help of professionals that could minimize pain and suffering, and make sure it's effective than have them try themselves.
yes, if they are suffering from physical pain or mental illness
Honestly, I think that assisted suicide is fine. However, I think it can't be just left at that. I think that along with assisted suicide there need to be guidelines. 1. patients must go through a series of counselling. Reassuring that they are making the right decision. 2. Guardian consent?! Possible precaution for individuals who are suspected to suffer from a mental illness or other impediments. I believe there should be more regulations, but I am not educated enough in the matter. Overall, if it ever is legalized, I believe assisted suicide should follow a very strict process.
If the person is proven to be mentally capable, then I see no reason why they shouldn't have the right to end their own lives
Why make someone who is going to die in a short amount of time live in chronic pain till then?
Just because you personally believe that suicide is wrong does not mean that you should take that right away from others that are facing debilitating pain. If you don't agree with it then don't have it. Of course it will be regulated. So you cannot say that now the mentally ill can kill themselves. It's not like people will commit assisted suicides with a wrench in their kitchens.
In school we wrote both an argument essay and a letter to the editor about doctor assisted suicide, my opinion on the matter is pretty much there. You can view the essay here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SckGtRq5zy5AHzjH2YMNZr128NY-tP0O5f9CMbDEZK0/edit You can view the letter here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11JHBhOPhEknW9CHi8E_yfpFshWSbpiwfrnCCYJfIK7w/edit
If you are in pain, death can end it, remember assisted suicide is WITH the consent
I have been at the point of suicide and attempted, failed and sent to a hospital in Columbia, South Carolina. I do believe assisted suicide should be legalized because it is a personal choice and should be allowed to end their pain AS A LAST RESORT.
Doctor assisted suicide should be legal, because if your dying of like cancer and you have tried every measure possible. And you know your just going to end up dying eventually, but in pain and suffering. What is the point of living when your gonna die later on and in worse pain. Suicide is not murder. And when they say its 'against christian values' not everyone is christian, If Its against god to kill yourself and your gonna go to hell. Wont you being against gods will by not showing mercy just saying.
This shouldn't even be an argument anymore
If it was me i would rather not sit their in pain
Assisted suicide opens the door for the mentally ill to kill themselves.
Suicide is murder. Not only does it go against christian values it goes against popular morals that a large amount of the masses share. Instead of offering to help a person end their life they should help them ease their mental issues with therapy.
Remember the genocide of the Nazi Holocaust. Euthanasia economic, emotional two euros is likely to be a murder means. Also, the State has an obligation to protect life. It is recognized that euthanasia is that citizens recognize the right of being killed.In addition, there is no evidence of a patient unconscious hariraneun want to die.
So in the Pro Euthanasia section I'm seeing a lot of, "If they have a mental illness they should be able to kill themselves if they feel like it." But if we're going off of that claim then why don't we just let anyone upset kill themselves? Or how about a brokenhearted teenager? And who says we need the government? Let's all just go jump off a bridge or something! Think of your child. Or your friend or just someone you love in general. If they went to the government and asked to die and the government said, "Yeah kay that's cool. show up tomorrow morning." And then all of a sudden, that person was gone. How would you feel? Assisted suicide should not be legalized because of this. When someone kills them self, it passes on their pain to other people. No one would benefit from this. Life is precious. O be wise, what can I say more?
