    just musing...thats the only thought that I came up with last night. Someone who is not terminally ill, is sound of mind, might be suffering in some manner, but has dependents.

    Maybe its not enough to make it illegal or anything, but i question the ethics of the situation.

    I'd also be curious about how this works from a life insurance perspective. I guess countries where this is legal have different allowances for it than ours might (i.e I know some life insurance policies don't pay out in cases of suicide?)

    I'm all for it. I believe that people have a right to a peaceful death, and know that if my time was up I would want to control my death just like I try to control as much of my life as I can.

    A doctor ending someone's life affects the person who's life is ended, not the doctor.

    I meant not illegal for the suicid-ee. Because he/she isn't doing anything that hurts anyone else

    I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26

    See I think if you yourself want to kill yourself then ok, but I do not think a doctor should be the one killing someone.

    Would you rather have to clean your dad's blood off the bathroom floor? Trust me, it's not a fun thing to have to do.

    Would you feel better if a phlebotomist did the actual procedure of inserting the needle, using a prescription from a doctor? Personally I think that's semantics.

    Suicide is a terrible thing regardless.

    I think this is a fine thing. why are we stopping people who want to kill themselves? If they want to they will find a way and it will be a lot messier.

    I don't think doctors should be made to do this. Just as I don't think all doctors need to provide abortions. Each doctor has their specialty and this is just one.
