    Why even get cremated? Attach some rockets and fireworks to ya and volunteer your body to the army. That way you can take out some assholes with you (by then I assume we will be in WWIII against Iceland)

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I support euthanasia for the terminally ill who are suffering in pain if that is their wish. I do not support forced euthanasia of any kind, especially government enforced euthanasia. Doctors don't commit assisted suicide because they want to kill someone. They do it because they know their patients condition, the pain they are in, and have compassion on the dying when there is absolutely nothing they can do for them.

    Suicide is an honorable end to a life that is no longer worth living. We should be supportive of people who are ready to die, honor their decision, and respect those that they have trusted enough to request their assistance.

    I think Assisted suicide, which I suppose can be considered Euthanasia ought to be legal under certain circumstances. If you have a terminal illness and you are suffering then assisted suicide should absolutely be an option. I can't think of a good reason for it not to be, the only point against it is based on religious values which clearly doesn't make a strong case. I think it is one of those issues though that politicians are afraid to tackle.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Judging by the posts on this thread, our politicians are letting us down once again. What a surprise.

    Whether or not we agree with something shouldn't be a reason to ban it. In a free society we are our owners.

    It's my life. It's your life. As we have a right to our life that includes the right to end it if we feel it's necessary.

    It is the role of government to protect or civil liberties. Not to protect us from ourselves.

    The same can be said for many other laws.

    Anyone who successfully commits suicide, should be thrown in jail.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I do not support any of those things. A mentally healthy person is not going to kill themselves. You don't let crazy people mutilate their bodies or kill themselves. Nor should a innocent human being be put to death against their will. As far as a lot of people are concerned there is no heaven,reincarnation or any of that other stuff and for those of us who do believe in those things there is no guarantee that you'll go to heaven or be reincarnated or something else. So it would behoove a lot of people to try to hang onto to their life as long as possible regardless of the pain and other inconveniences. There are people in **** hole third world war torn countries starving, suffering and victims of local wars who are glad to be alive and hang on to life but yet people in well to do countries such as ours act as though life is no big deal like its a penny you find on the street.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    There's a lot to be said for the quality of that life. And each and every person who chooses to leave this life, REGARDLESS of what is or is not to follow? That's still theirs to own.

There was a reason they wanted the bodies, though. You see the bodies were the main ingredient of the wonder food, Soylent Green. Far fetched? Well, I've seen some unusual things come down the pike in the last few years.
    IIRC, old in the movie was 30 years or so....
