Dignity Debate 3: Considering Maynard's choice, do you think such decisions, within reason, should be a constitutional right?
I forgot to include the article link connected to these polls!
Not very clear, sorry- by "within reason" I mean the decision to end one's life is fairly reasonable, for example, terminally ill and using a humane manner of assisted suicide.
Any reason is within reason
No. If you are in constant pain or other distress, you act under duress. Spontaneous remission happens now and then, so don't give up hope. A doctor should keep the Hippocratic oath. No doctor-assisted murder.
If I'm dying I'm not going to ask permission to do what is necessary.
Exactly what I was thinking.
What next, poison for the clinically depressed? And why is there no dignity if a whole team of physicians and the machines they use try to keep you alive?

Yeah, that's why I posted this question because it's a fascinating debate. I have depression, so it did occur to me- we don't want to help mental illness/trauma related suicides...how do we find a balance? Can we even find one? Perplexing...
