Quoting Devil's Advocate:" What do you mean, sometimes?"
Its not really the thread for it, but I believe assisted suicide should be legal. Is suicide tragic for the 14 year old girl that has a bad breakup and thinks her life is over, and was only dating the guy a week? Yes, and if I hear that Id be sad over how the life was lost over something so silly.
But if someone was in so much mental anguish or had a debilitating sickness and they thought long and hard about what was wrong and would rather die than live in pain..... WHY do we force them to? If my child had cancer and was subjected to treatment after treatment and said "I want to be let go," Id wish there was a legal way for her to do it. Because a situation like that isnt tragic. The only tragedy is making someone stay alive for our own benefit.
