    Should American adopt the right to Doctor Assisted Suicide?

    Forgive the typo in title - *Should America...*

    Canadians have right to doctor-assisted suicide, Supreme Court rules - The Globe and Mail

    Canada can now be added to the small list of countries that give humans the right to decide when they want to end their lives legally.

    Is this a fundamental human right?

    And should the U.S. (on a national level) and other countries adopt it?

    People should have the right to die with dignity.

    Period.

    This does need heavy regulation however to ensure the 15 grandchildren aren't pressuring grandma into going early for inheritance as an over the top example but I have absolutely no problem with this.

    The answer is yes, an individual should have the ownership of and the decision making ability for themselves... up to and including the right to die with dignity.

    Everyone should have the right to decide what they want to do with their bodies, including to die with dignity and NOT be forced to live as a vegetable.

    Canada legalized gay marriage 12 years ago and now they have legalized doctor assisted suicide. God they are ahead of us.

    You have a right to kill yourself, not to have others do killing for you.

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

    some people, such as the bedridden, can not kill themselves and need assistance. That is what the new legislation is mainly tailored for. Those who are not going to die anytime soon, but our living what is left of their lives in pain.

    Actually, the more advanced countries have legalized euthanasia. And stay out of other people's business. If you want to live like a vegetable, then make that clear to your family. But for those who want to die, let them. Mind your own business.

    So refuse treatment, refuse food, and refuse water.

    You will die soon enough and no one else will be responsible for that death but you.

    And that would be a long stretched out painful death. What here are you missing?

    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?
