    Re: Should American adopt the right to Doctor Assisted Suicide?

    I support this ruling, but it's specious reasoning to say those who die by assisted suicide don't suffer, just like it's specious to say that people who die in their sleep don't suffer. On the outside it might look peaceful but we don't know what their experience is. That said, assisted suicide for the terminally ill sure beats the long and drawn out suffering that usually happens before they die, not to mention the medical cost. There are good moral and practical reasons for this ruling.

    To play devil's advocate, the part of the debate that I find really fascinating is the "do no harm" edict of medicine, which is pretty much a global phenomenon in all cultures. With assisted suicide you're basically killing them... can a therapeutic value be argued for that?

    There's also a classism argument to be made here. Assisted suicide may still be expensive, prohibiting the poor from ending a disease of protracted suffering. At the same time, it would be cheaper than long term care, so if someone can't afford palliative care would we just refer them to a death doctor?

    Someone denying food is not someone else doing anything towards them. Try something else.

    Reading is fundamental.

    Paying someone to kill a human in aggression is impermissible and any government that allows such a thing is backwards and barbaric.

    Killing in of it's self is not an act of aggression.

    Being aggressive in doing so would only qualify that statement.

    When an aging dog is euthanized the vet didn't aggressively kill it. The animal dies peacefully and painlessly.

    There is definitely a distinction.

    Your statement is ridiculous.

    So an injection to end someones life is aggressive conduct.

    But intentionally depriving someone of care, food and water under my care knowing they will die is not aggressive conduct given the level of suffering involved with the two options.

    That makes no sense because either way you've killed that person by your actions.

    Yes, yes, it is. Ending someone's life is aggression. You don't just kill someone and somehow not act aggressively. You're being nonsensical.
