Depends on the regulation put in place and circumstances
f the said individual is not on their way out the door currently. They are are sober of mind and they are presently choosing to commit suicide. This is then translated to the medical professionals who then decide to make that suicide painless, they have, indeed, decided to assist in that individuals suicide.
Assisted suicide is not murder. The individual dying simply asked for a medical professional to administer them the cocktail needed to peacefully end their lives. The individual then takes the concoction on their own. It's their choice. Their UNALIENABLE RIGHT to their own life.
I said that he wished suffering on them. Which is clear when you say to just let someone starve to death, die of dehydration, etc.
To give them pain meds would be assisting that end.
you cannot give your "right to life" to another person, unalienable rights are not transferable.
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
It's against my personal moral compass but yes, people should have the choice if they want it. There are some very nasty and painful ways to die and when there is no hope and when there is no pressure or money involved, it should be a legal option in the US.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
It is enabling the act.
We all know how you like to create your own definitions and ignore 'actual' definitions that are published and recognized by mainstream AND medical professionals.
You are just highlighting this again in this thread. No one is fooled, no matter how you define your bizarre interpretations of real life.
My mother died from pancreatic cancer. In her final days she asked my brother to kill her. If I knew then what I know now, I'd have done it. We went to bed one night and a hospice nurse sat with her. At some time during the night she threw up in her mouth and was unable to turn her head and clear her through. She gargled on it for god knows how long until I woke up, with the nurse sitting there watching her. We cleared her mouth and she died shortly after. You're damned right that when there was no hope of quality of life and the only thing she had to look forward to was suffering, I'd have gladly ended her misery.

Adult people have the right to die if they choose to die. Not my call when, why or how they do it, so if they want to die via assisted suicide, they should have that option.
