Not sure what country it is, Switzerland maybe, but there is a country that allows people to use a machine that will assist them in dying. Do you agree with it? Would you want something like that in your country?

Assisted suicide is a very tough subject because the morality of it comes into question. But in my opinion, if someone's suffering is a very personal thing and we have no right to stop someone ending their life in a controlled way should they desire to do so after going through all the psychological screening process that they have in place.

I fully support it, there comes a point when life has to end. I know my mom would have taken the option if possible, her last few weeks before succumbing to cancer were.... less than liveable.

I only support it in cases where the condition is terminal or it's a chronic condition that is brings the person a lot of discomfort, loss of control or indignity.

I understand. But if someone wants to use such a service even without a terminal or chronic condition, shouldn't they have the choice anyway? It's not something that impacts us and they might just not be happy with life

Very controversial opinion Ash. I would not be in support of say someone with depression being allowed access to this type of service. They should be institutionalized and medicated if they are that bad. I know it comes down to personal choice in many cases, but society also has an obligation to protect its most vulnerable members.

For terminal or chronic, they should have a choice. Right to live. Right to die.
To me, if someone wants to kill themselves they will find a way to do it. Even if it's when they are in a deep depression & feels there's no other way.
With the way the world is now, many of us are not happy with life & it does not seem like it will be better anytime soon. So I can see how somebody would just want to end it. All the medication & therapy in the world won't change our world leaders & the economy.
I do believe while we can't change our situation, we can change how we THINK about that situation. However, this world now really tests the limits of those who can do that.
