    Yeah because knowingly starving someone to death is not barbaric

    Why should someone have to suffer just because you're a religious nut?

    Bull****. The human body doesn't last long without water. Doesn't take much by way of palliation to relieve any negative symptoms associated with dehydration, and then you lose consciousness, and then you die.


    Doctor assisted deaths are peaceful. The patient dies without suffering your alternative is that they suffer.

    I'm sorry but who is the barbarian again?
    Aggressive violence against another human being is not peaceful.

    There is a moral difference between inflicting lethal harm on someone and allowing them to die because that is their wish.

    That line is very important. Palliation is mercy. Killing is something you can only justify in self-defense.

    You already answered the question. Just take out the word religious from your last post

    Dying from lack of food alone can be more prolonged and uncomfortable than dying from dehydration. If a person stops eating and drinking, death may come as early as a few days but more commonly one to three weeks. If the patient continues to drink, the process may take even longer.
    Again your alternative is one of suffering. Prolonged suffering.

    So you are ok with someone helping with alleviating the pain associated with suicide just not ok with someone, a professional, just out right doing it for the said individuals. I'm not understanding where your line is drawn.


    Aggressive violence against another human being is not peaceful.
    What is aggressive about stopping someone's painful demise and giving them peace?

    You know, there is more than one way to come to a conclusion, and if you actually read his posts in this thread you would KNOW why he thinks the way he does.
