No, I don't think that anyone should be allowed to end their life by assisted suicide because that is murder if you are helping someone

 @9G7PFWZPeace and Freedom from Michigan disagreed…2mos2MO

The concern that legalizing it could lead to potential abuse and coercion by individuals who may not be making a fully informed decision. This emphasizes the need for strict safeguards and regulations to prevent potential misuse of euthanasia laws.

 @9FPK53T from Virginia disagreed…2mos2MO

We are encouraging suicide in the country and therefore we will see a raise in deaths in America. It is also very unethical for people to assist with one´s death willingly.

  @99CDF6R  from Massachusetts commented…10mos10MO

Its good

Terminally ill people should have the right to end themselves because it is theirs and nobody else's. I don't give a damn if it is against your religion; you shouldn't impose your rules on others who do not subscribe to your beliefs and believe that assisted suicide should be allowed.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...10yrs10Y

Yes, but only after a psychological examination to show they fully understand this choice

 @9DLKZZ3from PR commented…3mos3MO

When it comes to the controversial topic of assisted suicide for terminally ill patients, I believe that it should be allowed, but only after a thorough psychological examination to ensure that the patient fully understands the gravity of their decision. As someone who values personal autonomy, I believe that people should have the right to choose when it comes to their own life and death. When faced with a terminal illness and debilitating pain, it's understandable why someone would want to end their suffering and die with dignity. However, this is not a decision to be taken lightly,…  Read more

No, but they should be allowed to refuse artificial life support

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...10yrs10Y

Yes, but only if there is no chance they will survive their illness

 @99JGS33 from Kentucky answered…9mos9MO

Yes, but after a psychological examination to show they fully understand this choice or if there is NO chance they will survive or fully recover from their illness/disease/disability.

 @4PYJFTTfrom New York answered…3yrs3Y

A law on suicide is as enforceable as a law against masturbation. You simple can't stop a person from doing what they wish to do. If a terminally ill person wishes to end their suffering, who I am I to prevent them.

  @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky disagreed…1yr1Y

No, but they should be allowed to refuse artificial life support

The key word is "allow".

If the patient can end their own life without assistance, you can't stop them.

If the patient requires assistance in ending their own life, that's a different matter.

 @4PYMMQ4from Washington answered…3yrs3Y

This should be extended to all people ill or not. Suicide should be an option everyone has.

 @97YZK36  from New York disagreed…1yr1Y

The issue is that most people who want to kill themselves are in a mental health crisis. If you treat their mental illness, they won’t want to kill themselves anymore.

 @4RHYFBTfrom Texas answered…3yrs3Y

The "right to die" issue really troubles me. I'm afraid if we keep insisting on our right to die, the insurance companies are going to start denying care to chronically and terminally ill parients (who want and and need medical care) based on the enormous costs involved. I foresee a day in the not so distant future where we will be fighting for our "right to live." There will come a day when so-called "Death Panels" decide whether or not we should live or die based on the economic factors involved. This is a very slippery slope.

All people with diseases or genetic defects should be executed for the good of humanity.

  @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky disagreed…1yr1Y

No, but they should be allowed to refuse artificial life support

That's what the Nazis said.

 @4VBSSJHfrom New York answered…3yrs3Y

Yes, even non-terminally ill people should be able to legally make this choice.

 @4QC3MDFfrom Michigan answered…3yrs3Y

For some patients terminal within three to six months may have to endure pain and suffering beyond their threshold. Euthanasia is not suicide, it should be a human right for one to liberate from enduring suffering.

 @4S4KFX8from Oregon answered…3yrs3Y

A. I am terminally ill. B. The concern should be about weak and defenseless people being coerced into suicide by their potential heirs. If, given reasonable counseling a person wishes to cash-out, that should be allowed.

 @4S2N35Zfrom Georgia answered…3yrs3Y

Having lost a loved one to suicide I say no, it is never the answer. However, were I dying a slow and terrible death? I would end it. But I couldn't do that to my kids, so I wouldn't. But, maybe I would. Too big an issue, too emotionally charged for a survey

 @4RPQ2ZZfrom Virginia answered…3yrs3Y

We should widely look into cryonics for the cases of the terminally ill, as the end result is the same as assisted suicide in the worst case, but the best case is that they get a second chance at a full life.

 @4QX85K3from Michigan answered…3yrs3Y

Many ill people wouldn't suffer so long if it wasn't for big pharma keeping them alive for profit! If someone is that ill, let God be in control!

Everyone can commit suicide without fear of the government. Duh. Will the deceased go to jail?

 @4VF65YKfrom California answered…3yrs3Y

 @4SBD9LCfrom Michigan answered…3yrs3Y

Why wouldn't they? This is what hospice does. Dr. Jack Kevorkian went to prison for doing what hospice does the only difference is the government didn't get their greedy hands on it.

 @4RFSNK6from Indiana answered…3yrs3Y

No! Are you kidding? You are supposed to die a natural death, taking your life is the worse thing you could do, if you only have a couple weeks to live, live it well and make beautiful memories. Don't end something that's going to take course on it's own.

 @4QHMCZHfrom New York answered…3yrs3Y

Yes, but the screening process should allow it to be very difficult to obtain the right to do so and physicians should be able to deny doing so if it is against their beliefs

 @4Q7VH2Tfrom Idaho answered…3yrs3Y

i feel that there are medical ways to help someone that is terminally ill pass in manner other than allowing them to commit suicide.

 @55PVFN9from New York answered…3yrs3Y

 @4XB4YQZfrom California answered…3yrs3Y

They should have the balls to kill themselves instead of making someone else do it for them

 @4R5LSTTfrom Virginia answered…3yrs3Y

There should be no posthumous legal action taken against people who commit suicide or assisted suicide.

 @4QGTTQBfrom Alabama answered…3yrs3Y

As long as they don't use tax money to do it... if you can't afford to pay for assisted suicide, then you need to buy a lot of heroine and OD.

 @4RWNCLXfrom New Jersey answered…3yrs3Y

Yeah it's their life they can do what they choose with it we need less people on earth anyway if we keep stopping suicides we're going to get pretty close to over population and I sure as hell don't want that

 @4PWYYJ9from New York answered…3yrs3Y

Suicide is by definition, a solitary act. "Assisted suicide" is another expression for homicide.

 @57MVXDJfrom Indiana answered…3yrs3Y

No, due to religious belief...for one did not give themselves life, therefore can not add or take away any days or years to it. Just refuse artificial life support. We are becoming too much of a country that gives "Burger King" rights. We can not continue to look at things in a "have it your way attitude." Let's look back at the purpose of life & death and not for "shortcuts."

 @8CJ9PFM from Kentucky answered…3yrs3Y

Yes, but after a psychological examination to show they fully understand this choice or if there is NO chance they will survive or fully recover from their illness/disease/disability. I know that death is a VERY SAD thing but I don't like seeing people or animals suffering either.

 @4Q4Z352from Kansas answered…3yrs3Y

that's just weird. they can have they choice, but not have someone assist in it. I feel that's a type of murder.

Hard to legislate your morality on others--they have their own choice-- abortion victims (murder) don't.

 @5F5ZKY3Libertarianfrom Michigan answered…3yrs3Y

Yes, but only if there is no chance of survival and then only after a series of counseling appointments. People can not get Gender Reassignment surgery without 6 months of counseling because GRS can not be undone. It should be no different for those seeking assisted suicide.
