    In this thread, people call other forum members ad hominems and pretend they don't understand why that's bad.

    Smh.

    Killing is only justified when absolutely necessary, as in self-defense. Every human being has an unalienable right to life. We create governments to protect such rights.

    There is nothing to celebrate about a government abandoning its chief reason for existence.
    What about all the people in this country that die each year because they have no health insurance. Is that the government protecting their rights?

    You can't read posts, so it would probably wouldn't go far anyway.

    Do you think that somehow people have a right to health insurance or medical treatment?

    Right you made the flippant remark as if dieing of starvation and thirst was an easy and quick way to go. It takes, as established by the link, commonly up to a few weeks. Without palliation that is a lot of suffering.

    As stated, this "suffering" you refer to can be palliated. I'll say again: palliation is mercy. Killing is not mercy.
    It would still be assisted suicide. Explain the distinction. The only difference is that the professional in this case is simply watching the person wither away as the medicate them, while, being aware that this individual is actively committing suicide and agreeing to help them do so in a non-painful way.

    Killing is only justified when absolutely necessary, as in self-defense. Every human being has an unalienable right to life. We create governments to protect such rights.
    Do we also create governments to deny the right to end your own life? This thread isn't titled "Should doctors be allowed to murder people"
    it's about the individual right to seek a medical professional when choosing to end their life. Is that not a right they have and is it not the medical professional right to choose if they are willing to partake in that. And if when all is said and done, there is mutual and respected understanding between the professional and the individual seeking to end their life what abut that is aggressive and inhumane?

    There is nothing to celebrate about a government abandoning its chief reason for existence.
    I think we can celebrate a government that recognizes an individuals right to choose their own fate rather than choose it for them.

    No it doesn't. Please read the definition again. The irony here is that you are insisting that I am clouded by my feelings when you are the one so enthralled with your own ego that you are ignoring the actual definition of a word in favor of you own made up definition.

    So do people have to provide their labor so you get medical treatment or does it just pop out of the void to make you feel all better.
