    Still don't care. That Dr. Kevorkian also killed people who were not even terminally ill should be a clue to you as to what kind of door you are opening.

    Re: Euthanasia, should people have the right to decide their own end?

    Why do you presume anybody would be "forced" to help you? Doctors in OR can write the scrip and give you instructions - they don't have to - they just can. It's no different than medical marijuana permits. No MD is "forced" to write them, they do it for either money or a genuine belief that it helps the patient.

    Is this our misunderstanding? Do you presume that if suicide were legalized that someone or some agency would be forced to write the scrip? That's all it is - it is self-administered. I'd prefer a professional administer it in a cozy environment (think Soylent Green's Public Suicide chambers where you pick the video, the music and your friends (if any).)

    Rick Santorum has made very deceitful comments about Dutch Euthanasia, the comments can be heard in the first part of this video:



    very funny is also the response by the Santorum campaign when questioned about this by a Dutch reporter:



    And please believe me, nothing of what he said was true. There are no "do not kill me bracelets", euthanasia is not 10% of deaths, involuntary euthanasia does not exist and our elderly do not go to foreign hospitals in droves because they are afraid of being killed.

    You clearly do. Also, you would need to have a morality for me to think anything of it.

    As if I cared what the likes of you cared about. Its a good thing you have no power to stop people from ending their suffering.

    Does one need to be terminally ill to decide it's time to exit what might remain of their life?

    And you are free to feel that way, I think letting someone die in unbearable pain and suffering is much more inhumane than euthanasia is. And again, if someone does not want to be die by euthanasia that is fine, more than fine with me. I just would like people who do not think like you to have the freedom to choose euthanasia if and when the time comes for them to make that decision.

    Santorum is as crazy as a loon. Even the GOP couldn't deal with him during his failed Presidential run.

    There does not have to be a slippery slope.

    If a person wants to die bad enough, sure. As long as it's on their own. The liabilities and potential for abuse are far too risky to allow third-party actors.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    If someone is willing to commit themselves to non existence, then they deserve the right to.
