For someone who doubts which gods you believe in, thats amusing. Its Gods role to dispense His Mercy, not yours, (or anyone's). Death should be natural, and pain is a part of the process. You have no right to interfere in said process. If that person led a good life, in death his or her pain will be relieved and happiness restored in full.

It is amusing that I would imagine mercy and compassion are considered virtues by whatever divine exists, if any? Why?

So you say. I'm inclined to think that my actions would embody the sort of mercy you're thinking of.

If the patient is prime condition, no. If somebody is suffering and medically the options are limited, then yes I believe everyone should have the right to choose how/when they die. I know for a fact that if I'm living but I physically and mentally cannot be me anymore due to an illness or something like that, then it's time to pack up my bags and move on.

What?

If I am to live as a tomato, someone who knows me would want to put an end to such misery

We don't have the right to die in regards to free will. The thing is, death is to be expected at any corner or moment in our life, but do we wish for it? No, because death is a moment in our life where we cease to exist, and the only ones to know about you are the ones who have lived beside you; the ones who can keep the memory of you alive.

No God will have the last words, and neither will you. It is pure stupidity and selfishness to think otherwise, we live as we die; to accept it without interfering with the nature of life and death itself.

I live first and worry about death when I'm dead, which by that logic I wouldn't even care about death itself. I want to live strong, and grow with passion, why even ask such a silly question I would rather make death my bitch and become immortal if that offers any closure

Some say it's selfish to die and leave behind the ones who cared for you but some also say it's selfish to force someone to live an unhappy life

I believe in the right to die. I haven't suffered a great deal myself, compared to some at least, but I certainly have some inkling of what people can go through and I don't believe people should have to needlessly suffer. I can understand if someone's thrown other people into this world, that we may say they should stay for the sake of their children and I can see how suicide can hurt the people around one. Anyway, I'd rather people have the legal right to a relatively painless assisted suicide or euthanasia than make a failed attempt that potentially leaves them much worse off than before. I don't like the idea of people ending up paralyzed or whatever all can happen, I don't know..... Amazing how things one would think can be foolproof aren't. No one asked to be born and I don't believe in god, controlling and sadistic or otherwise.
And because that may seem a bit of a downer for a first post and I'm actually a sometimes cheery enough fellow, I will end with this ninja emoji

If the person is of sound mental health and can actually make the decision for themselves and is given enough time to consider it then I think yes we should have the right to die.

However how do you decide if someone is of sound mental health when they want to die and how do you know if they are actually making that decision because of the right reasons and how much time is actually enough for them to properly consider whether or not they want to die.

This is a very interesting topic but to be honest with you, while speaking about it here and hearing other peoples opinions on it is important the amount of debate and study before deciding if someone should have the right to die has not been done and I don't think it will be done for decades to come.

In my mind, the right to die is as strong as the right to live. So you could basically ask me if we should have the right to live, my answer would be the same.

Which is HELL NO! No rights for you! And you! And you! No rights for everyone!

Having the right is pointless. If you want to die, you can do so and there's nobody on the entire Earth that is able to stop you.

Hm.. A tough question. If your old and suffering from some condition? By all means, I wouldn't want to force them through to go through that.

If your a teenager and your dealing with bullying and all those sorts? I'm not really sure.. It happens anyway, with those teenagers committing suicide. But I don't think I necessarily promote reckless abandonment of life.

-Scratches head- ..I don't think I really answer the question all that well! That's the best I can think of though at this moment.
