Out of all the replies I've read, yours makes the most sense.The right to die is arbitrary. If you choose death, how do they punish you? You're dead.



A lot insurance companies don't dole out insurance if you die, except perhaps in cases where suicide in terminal illness in countries allow it.

If you commit suicide, despite having a terminal illness, in said countries that don't allow it, it can be a lengthy legal battle. Not sure.


If you're not expecting a company to pay your family after you die then it doesn't matter.

Your case is that insurance companies won't pay if you die from suicide. If you're not expecting a company to pay your family upon your death then what does it matter? You won't get insurance dead? Ok. You're dead. Big deal

I believe we should have the right to die especially if you're suffering painfully and just waiting to die. When an animal has a terminal disease its considered animal cruelty to not put the animal down. So isn't it also cruelty to let a human suffer until death?

Scintillating feces discussions aside, like most things in life, this isn't a black and white issue.

My grandfather died from stomach cancer. For those of you who haven't experienced it (hopefully all of you), it kills you very slowly, and very painfully. He spent his final weeks addicted to a drug that no longer really dulled the pain.

On the other hand, someone I know who has young children that are dependent upon them, tried to commit suicide due to depression.

At the end of the day, I feel it's cruel to prolong someone's suffering past a certain point. Yet it's also cruel and selfish to take the easy way out while ignoring your responsibilities toward others.


Very well said.

But personally, I think we all have a right to die.
Maybe because I am a very individualistic person, I don't see why a person can't end their life if they want to.

Its a natural right in the set of natural laws, in comparison all men have the right to procreate then since its is something natural that all men do. all men die, you can not negate the right of something that nature give you.

I support voluntary euthanasia if that is what you mean. It can be 'selfish' to die, but keeping another person who does not want to be alive anymore can also be equally selfish.

People who want to die give up on life and thats never a good thing, no one should die that to me is weakness.

Maybe the fear of living overrode their fear of death.
