Do people have the right to die how they choose?

Postby TalkingPoint » Wed Apr 06, 2005 9:09 pm

If people have the right to live how they choose, do they also have the right to die how they choose?

Yes! All personal will should be respected either it's orally wish or documentally wish.

RIGHTS!

Postby Shazzam » Tue Apr 12, 2005 11:41 am

People should have the right to make this choice if they are terminally ill. However, due to the situations that legally face families; i feel that the importance should be placed in a legal document (either by document or by video) of the persons intentions. I think pretty much verbal understandings shouldn't be taken into consideration. It only takes a few minutes to make a video, and we all should have a Will anyway.

I think people should have such rights, but unfortunately now we are not protected of using our rights as malicious intent :( Not all of people could protect themself from... their relatives. Now we can only dream of our wishes are fulfilled.
...Be happy...

i don't think people should have the right to die .we can't choose if we are born in this world or not so we don't have the right to leave.somebody may say they are terminally ill and they must suffer to terrible pains but pains are parts of living and some may say they are burdens to their families but would they do the same thing if their relatives fell in such situation.

Just so you were born "without" your choice of whether you should have been born or not, you would not have a right to decide whether you should leave this world or not????? Oh my god, this is the first time I've heard something like this. No more words to express; otherwise, I would become really rude and right now, I'm PMSing. :roll: :roll: :roll:

So people who don't believe in God don't belong to God :roll: :roll: :roll: ???? No one belongs to anyone beside himself and family, PERIOD.
