    Not everyone can do that. First of all, it's not as easy as you think it is. Secondly, it can be botched. I found a picture several years ago from Faces of Death where a guy shot himself in the face with a sawed off shot gun and survived. The bastards put tubes through the hole in his face down his throat and forced him to live. Third, not everyone can physically manage to kill themselves because of a disability.

    It's their life, if they want to end it for whatever reason, it ought to be up to them, so long as no one has influenced them to do so against their will.

    If they want to die, let them die.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then they should initiate it.

    Not to mention... why would you want to leave that mess for your loved ones to find and/or have to clean up?

    That's called stupidity, Evenstar. If you're that dumb, you probably deserve to live.

    There's always the option that I take in my living will.... refusal to accept food or fluids.

    Which is why one should aim for the temple or put the gun in their mouth.

    But that sounds horrifying.

    Nope. Up underneath the chin, near the throat, with the muzzle angled slightly towards the rear of the body. Greatest potential to do maximum damage to the brain.

Suicide is preferable to many as an alternative to being "useless" and a burden to society. Any care afforded to these folks, for perhaps the next 20+ years, is not available to those that would benefit more from it. Suicide is not such a selfish act as many percieve it to be.
    It wasn't all that long ago that Kevorkian was demonized for helping others do the same thing. How thinking has changed! Now, Belgium is not the US, but I see little wrong with a physician agreeing to this. Giving a morphine drip is often requested by a patient who no longer wants to be in pain, and just wishes to go peacefully...why prolong their suffering?

    It seems you have thought about this a lot?

    It also seems more dignifying, to me at least.
