<< Worth Updating - new Rules?
Dignitas and Dignity in Dying >>
We may not have many rights as a human species, but this is one of them, to commit suicide with dignity if they so choose. Everyone has a right to suicide if they want. Some are in pain, some are already dying and don't want to waste away. This latter category is the one I feel is most important. Who has more right to die than a person confined to a hospital ward, hooked up to machines that live for them, breathe for them, eat for them? Have they no simple human dignity? Don't they have the right to choose to end it? To just make it stop? To preserve their last shreds of dignity and humanity? My opinion may not be worth much, but it stands, we have a right to euthanasia.
