    Otherwise you'll get a warning or thread ban. You're new but i'll probably get dinged for posting this, lol.

    But that's how they generally keep the idiocy in check. (Generally)
    Ooooh! sorry mod's! hahaha
    Good call and thank you for pointing that out. I'll have to read the novel of rules more closely, which is a good thing BTW. We could go off topic if we wanted as long as it wasn't an intentional derail and we could talk about posters as long as the talk wasn't over the top or it focused on their posts and not them.

    Thanks again and sorry again mods if I did break rules!

    Also I "think" I sent you a friend request.

    What does any of those questions including yours have to do with answering the question I asked of you? Maybe you missed my request, please present the facts that make it objective harm.
    Harm: to cause injury to another; to hurt; to cause damage to something

    So again, how do you kill someone and not harm them?

    An injection or dosage of medication that puts someone to sleep and continues to depress their breathing until it stops isnt doing any physical damage.

    Why? One has nothing to do with the other.

    I think there are other subforums where you can have all sorts of casual discussions and a Basement where you can flame away but I dont go there.

    I couldn't support that because of the same reason I support assisted suicide, rights.
    I do think organ donation should be an "opt out" thing instead of in but I couldn't force it to protect religious rights. Some religions are very specific what should happen during death or to the body so I couldn't support violating that.

    I know that's like a double edge sword because the immediate thought is what religion allows suicide but not organ donation hahahaha

    Well the answer is I don't know BUT there might be one so I wouldn't force it.

    Their own body is taking care of that.....the individual just wants to end their own suffering at a faster pace than their own body.

    Maybe they can tell their disease to stop causing their body damage and everything will be ok?

    We all perceive pain and emotional suffering differently. If they have gone through reasonable measures to alleviate their own suffering without physician assisted suicide.......who are we to say they have to suffer to death.

    By the way, as a critical care nurse of over 30 years, I can tell you that many feel intense suffering and misery by having their friends and family watch them linger. I would be this way as well. Get it over with.

    So again you are not answering my request and again this has nothing to do with aggression hahaha.

    But like I said I'm very entertained by people who post lies, since you are going to dodge my question lets play your game because the results will be the same, your lie losing

    Here is the definition of "harm"
    : physical or mental damage or injury : something that causes someone or something to be hurt, broken, made less valuable or successful, etc.

    now objectively apply this to assisted suicide.

    I want to die, so my Doctor hands me a pill, I take it, I fall a sleep and I die.

    Now Please point out the "objective" aggression and harm.

    So a place where there's no rules? That might be fun on certain days and when I'm in certain moods. Thanks again you've been helpful.

    I know. My mother is a registered nurse and spent time working in a nursing home. We've had many discussions about this and similar topics. She is a strong Christian woman but supports assisted suicide and definitely supports DNRs and not taking extreme measures to save the elderly or those severely damaged. And we all have Living Wills. My folks are in their 70s btw.
