Should assisted suicide be legal, but only for specific reasons? (Terminally ill, really old, limbs cut off in an accident, etc. Not because you're depressed)
Yes. A friend of my fathers recently died of cancer. It was awful what he had to go through. By the time it was over the cancer had reached his mind and he had become irate with his family and everyone he knew. Near the end my dad was one of the few
People left. Of course he even verbally assaulted my dad but my dad came back. When he first got the cancer he came over our house for dinner and told us that he is okay with dying but he didn't want to suffer. He did suffer, physically and
Emotionally. I only wish he could have died with dignity.
The biggest concern I have with assisted suicide is where do we draw the lines? It seems like the 'criteria' gets even wider and wider.
It should just be legal. My body my choice--in EVERY possible regard.
As long as no one else gets hurt.. You betcha...
Anyone can kill themselves. I personally believe that you should only be "assisted" for understandable reasons.
