I am agree, because, death is natural, like life itself.
I agree with you absolutely. If someone wanna die, why
need to prevent it, this is his/here decision and only
he/she will responsible before God.

I dont think that people have the right to choose he can't take decision itself. I haven't deepen information about that topic.. but I waana must say that it's all in the hand of God. because someone has said that the iife is too short we should be appreciate the life.

Have a right to die

Post by Lac » Thu Jan 18, 2007 6:51 am

Everyone has the right to die. The most important thing is how to die ? Theoretically, we all respect the freedom to choose of every body, every human being, provided that their freedom would not be against with others' interests. There're deaths called "hero" when somebodoy laid down his or her life for the lofty targets. And there're also some deaths not worthy of being heroic.
Some of you said no one really wants to die. To me there're apparently lots of reasons to die for vindicating one's deeds. We dont know clearly which act is right or wrong of death-seeking persons. We absolutely respect their own choice. But at the same time, we should not leave them alone before their mind sprouting the idea of killing by themselves.
Probably that's the reason why many countries do not permit doctors to "give the final favour injection" to the hopeless patients.
Seeking a proper death (martyrs, soldiers in the battlefield...)is synonymous with honor ; yet the courage of persons who have "right to die" ocassionaly is regarded as insaneness when they intentionalyy do it.

WE CAME TO THIS WORLD WITHOUT ASKING FOR THAT WE MUST THANK OUR CREATOR BECAUSE LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL AND WORTH LIVING........SO OUR LIFE IS NOT ONLY OURS WE CANNOT MAKE AN END TO IT..........
IF YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A CREATOR , JUDGEMENT , THEN A NEW LIFE WHICH MAY BE BETTER OR WORSE .........YOU HAVE ALSO TO BELIEVE THAT YOUR LIFE IS NOT YOURS YOU ARE HERE IN THIS WORLD FOR A MISSION TO DO GOOD AND ONLY GOOD..ON THIS PLANET
IN SHORT, I THINK ENDING ONE'S LIFE IS A SELFISH ACT..........

If we leave it to the people decision i think that the moment at which we will find no one on earth will come. every one had a feeling of depression, sadness, hopelessness, loneliness, hoping to die, and if we have the chance to choose, a lot of us will decide to die, but believing in God should take us back to the right road, should show us the real meaning of life and of our existence.

If we beleive in God and its arbitration about our life , we consequence that the life is a holly issue for all of humens . nobody has the right to deprive itself from this gift.
another fact tha should be considered is that we are not only belong to ourselves and everyone in the world has this right to see our thriving life and we must not deprive them from their rights. be optimistic that your next day will be better than today.

If you have right to die means who will die in this world. why cant you avoid some dreadful diseases that takes the lives of persons? Why cant you stop the natural calamities like earthquake, Tsunami?

According to me people doesn't have the right to die..

Ask me when I'll go to die. Then I'll tell you what I want to do, if I can. What I want is they respect my will.

hi,
i believe that we r here in this earth according to the wish of God, and of course our existence must be for an important purpose that we have to achieve in the period of our live,how we die is a matter of God,Who has chosen our parents,our countries and our environement that we have been born in?our death is the same as these things and we have no right to choose,what we can do is doing well in our life ,by this way we may help in drawing our end.

Hi, If it is the way to die as our very sick beloved one wants, and why we do not agree with his/her request. It is the matter of respect too, I guess. i.e. Because of the deadly disease and medically unrecoverable anymore, then he/she wants to end his/her life in a very peaceful place such as in his own choice, and we have to fulfill the wish.
But if it is committing suicide, and one must reconsider seriously.

Oh. To tell you the truth, it's very interesting question. I theink, that every person has the right to choose how he wants to die. As for me, I'd like me were burnt and the dust would be in a big vase.
P.S. Sorry for my English.
And what do you think about euthanasia?

If people believe they have time right to live, firstly, i suggest that they should consider who gave them such right. Secondly, whether you have the right to refuse to be born.

Since we are creatures, prior to any "right to something" we are people of duties. Our first duty is to thank God for our creation, for our birth in this world. Otherwise we are falling in a "non serviam" attitude. Then, secondly, we ought to express love to our parents that brought us to life. But, make no mistake, God leaves us in absolute freedom to do anything in the course of our lives. God is so respectful for what we chosen to do even if it's wrong. God won't intervene, but he 's showed the right path and the Truth we have to seek. We are free to change this world for better. God with "his" silence, respect our determination to select the path we want.Even if you don't believe in Him, it 's your option. Famine, disease, poverty, corruption are in this world since ancient times to show us that doing something, taking action about it, is a must, now. Life is short. God won't intercept any bullet fired directly from a terrorist to your kid´s head. If He intervened, then life would be unbereable. WE have to remove poverty, corruption, etc.Not God. Take action: poverty and eveil is ritgh next door. We have to ask Him for help to show us the right path. He will answer, no doubt, but no when we want. I think He responds when there's a real need at the right time. He likes when we ask for something we do need, thus, removing our arrogance.

It is unavoidable even if it advocates an impracticable theory.
I think that it does not understand unless it becomes, when such a thing must be chosen as a person in question, a family, or an intimate person.
It is because the mental condition at that time is very much related although judged.

Hi,

I believe it's not correct to discuss rightfulness of making a decision to leave this world.
It is most likely that every person who wants to die has no doubts in rightfulness of his/her own decision. And, it is not our business to bless or condemn such a person.

Yet, we can judge about rightfulness of creating legal framework for the situation. However, this discussion must be one of the hottest topics at all times. Also, whenever you mention God or divine providence, don't forget that there is still some people who doesn't accept the concept of divine providence and doesn't believe in God at all.

So, taking into consideration the above, don't you think that all the disputes on the subject are absulutely useless?
Suppose, you have succeeded in recruiting someone to your belief. Are you sure that the preacher of another belief, at the same time, haven't succeded either? Are you sure that everyone can be recruited, well, convinced at all? Ask yourself, how often you changed your opinion on the basic postulates of life.
Look, I have some life experience. Nevertheless, I still didn't come to awareness about the necessity of legalisation of euthanasia. And I don't think that anyone can persuade me, either.
It's a controversial topic. And controversial topics are given to imrove our skills in rethoric , not to come to agreement.
Do you agree? {-;

Thank you Oriani. I,in turn, like the the discourse of cjlarrain whos post you can see on the top of this page. However, I am a little more sceptical about the possibility to exterminate povetry, corruption, etc. in this millenium.

What a fantastic question! It depends on which type of right does this question refer to.
In terms of legal right, people cannot choose how they die. For example, different countries have their own laws based on killing their citizens and residents lawfully.
Similarly, in terms of moral right, we cannot choose how we die as well. We do not have such power to terminate our lives besides God. However, God loves and wants us to live through good and bad times, so we can face what reality is and strengthen ourselves. =)

But sometimes people don't care about laws!
Don't you think that under certain circumstances someone may have moral right to break a law, whether civil or moral one? We all know how many ridiculous laws have been decreed by human race during the ages.
After all, there are evidents that even animals commit suicude!

Every people in this world have their own destiny, however, we still have our own self decision to make on what we like to do with our life.

Choosing what you will like to be or choosing what you don't want to be is a personal decision to make. Whatever your decision is on what you want to do in your life, will surely affect others live, for example; your family, your son/daughter, and career etc.

Still, deciding on what you would like to do in your life is your personal decision, but sometimes it's not due to unpredictable happenings that might come to us.

In my opinion although people have the right to live how they choose, they haven't the right to die how they choose. There are many cases when people try to kill themselves and it is bad, because only God can decide how we die and when it will be. Moreover I think that life is wonderful and we should not think about death, because we should enjoy every day.

According to me everybody dies in different way. It is God decides about a kind of death in every person. It isn't dependent on us, so I think a human should trust the God and don't look for the reason to die, even if she or he isn't now happy.

In my point of view people should have the right to die. In cases where people have a terminal illness. People always say that the only person responsible for what happens to you is yourself but you can't have the choice to end your own life?
It's your life, not someone else's.

According to me people should have right to die how they choose. If they are unhappy, becouse they get bad mark or they have to learn they can't commit suicide.But when they are for example terminally ill and they don't want to suffer they can kill themselves. From the point of view of church it is immoral, but priests don't thint that it is only prolongation of suffering for this people.

I think that we should not choose the moment when we die. We got it as a gift from God and we should appreciate that. Let's not think about it when we die. Let's think about what we need to do. You have to take advantage of this gift-to do something for yourself and for other people :)

In my opinion , people don't have the right to die how they choose.
Life is a gift from our parents. We should respect life. Everyone has right to live and nobady can't choose this right.
Abortion should be forbid!
My religion is oppose abortion, euthanasia. I agree with thase.

If we will have full right to reign life or die , all world can be change!!!

As I could read the majority of people who disagrees with people having this right, chose this view because of their belief in god as our creator, hence his choice about when and how you should die.

What if suicide was God's will? What if his way of making someone achieve his purpose in here was by letting this person go by his own will? It was mentioned the movie The Sea Inside somewhere in this thread. Those who know the story will agree with me that dead was pretty meaningful (the movie was based on true events, I must say).

I read some of you guys claiming that the suicide is a sign of the sickness of the person. Well, maybe it's a sign of the sickness of the world.

For me almost everyone should have this right, if it comes to that. But not for all the cases. People should face the consequences of certain acts. A guy who enters a school shooting at dozens of children shouldn't have the right to escape by killing himself.

I'm a christian, so for me this is simple question to answer. God gave us life through our parents which means that only God can take it back. Mankind are only creatures created by God, we don't have any rights to choose how we or somebody from our family and friends die. Every death means something and is causes some effects. Everything happens for a reason, even if this is horrifying.

I think that a lot of people do not want to die because God gave life them and they are grateful him. The next reason may be that they will leave their family and friends in mourning. If they have the right to die they want to die naturally. Sometimes people can't live because their are sick to end of their life and it would be a reason to commit suicide.

I disagree with people who say that only God can decides about people's live and die. In my opinion that kind of decision it might be hard but someone who is very ill and doesn't want to suffer should end live how he or she wants.

In my opinion everybody should decide about himself, so people should have the right to die, but only in case when death is unavoidable and somobedy's life is a suffering. I think when somebody has a chance to recover he has to try or when he doesn't feel pain and he can do yet what he wants, he should to make his dreams come true.

We have no influence on our born so we shouldn't choose how and when we die. Everybody should die on natural death and it doesn't matter how is our life.

I agree that people have a right to live how they choose , but they don't have a right to die how the choose. Everyone even ill person has a right to live as long as it is possible. It is independent of them how long will they die. People shouldn't choose how to die themself, because people shouldn't commit for instance suicides , because the human population might be decrease in the future and it's disturbing. Everyone should live long and luckily and do his tasks to improve the world.

for minor things, we all have the right to choose but for major or a lot of sensitive issues we just do not have the right, especially issues about life here in my country.

The subjet concerning the right to choose the way to die has touched another subjet matter: the existence of God.

Does God really exist?

The real question that's worth be asked is : do we care about our origin? I know the matter here is the way we end our life, but it seems clear it is attached to the way we see and consider our origin.

As a human being, I think every sensed person should ask this question to him/herself or to other people once.
Does one have to go as far as a philosopher can penetrate on this question_.. it depends, but what is sure is that this question is unavoidable. Whether during one's passage at school or through everyday discussions, or anywhere people talk about life, this question will pop up at one time in one's life.

So, what is the answer to this question?
Does God has some businesss to do with our end. Does God even exist.
Is my origin my grand grand ...parents which were at the beginning monkeys/fish/... .

I think one should not be short-sighted as to say my mother gave me life and God has nothing to do with it. This is reducing all the miracles of life to a bunch of nonesense which started some time nobody knows exactly.
We have the choice about how we want to lead our life if we have the mean to do so, but usually people go out of their home to work or to go to school or elsewhere without knowing it is the end for them. Sure, it makes you think, and if I had the choice...?
I often whatch those TV program talking about all the considered weird things in the world: discoveries, church miracles, witchcraft and vodoo, magicians, ghosts, etc. In my country, I also see people victims of black practices and people possessed by evil spirits. I think one should enquire about those things and not underestimate those happenings.
It is easy for a person who has not yet victim of sorcellery to say that it does not exist.
it is easy for a person whose country has not yet experienced war to ignite its sparkle anytime this person is angry.
it is easy for a person who knows nothing about the world of spirit to say God does not exist.
But God does exist. You need to know Him and try Him before being sure of that.

The right to choose the way to die and the fact of using it is for people who are afraid they will end their life in suffering.

I don't agree with that. We can't decided about someone life or when we want to die. We have to think what we want to do in our life and who change. We should be thankful that we are alive.

I disagree with that people have the right to die how they choose. The life is an obligation and people can't decide if they want to live or die. We have families and friends who need our love and help. I trust that only God can decide about people's life.

In my opinion life is obligation and people must live. We don't have right to die, when we choose this. Life can be difficult, but on the other hand life can be beautiful. I think, that life is finely obligation and I suppose God gives us life, so we can't decide when someone should die or live.

In my opinion every human has right to decide how wants to live. We don't have knowledge about somadies feelings, or health. I also think that this right is very important to people who can't live on their own, and they can't change that for their health.

It seems to me that everyone decides for himself. We should have right to do whatever we want. If someone want to die, we need to let him die. Every man is the architekt of his own fortune.

Death is an integral part of living. It cannot be separated or treat as something beyond living. As such it is impossible to separate this two. Our lives are leading to ours deaths, and our death is only as good as our life was.‏

In my opinion people should have the right to die how they choose. We decide about our live so why don't we can't decide about our death? Sometimes death is the best option when someone can't live how he or she wants to live. They have problems which are based for example on health. :-(

So, all of us have only one life. I believe in think that only we can determine about our life. So, if sb is really sick, seriously ill- like cancer or sth like this and there is no chance for him, why he/she have to suffer? ;-))
For me- everything depends on his/her will.

In my opinion every person should have a right to make a decision about one's own life. If someone want to die it his private decision. People shouldn't divest other person of life and shouldn't take away someone's choice to die.

People have the right to die how they choose, but it is stupid to die before "our time" will come. We should live as long as possible

In my opinion people have the right to die how they choose. Dying is so important thing and if someone wants to die I think we should let him die as he wants to. It is only this person decision and he has the right to decide how to die.

For me it's a very hard topic. People have different opinion. I'm still reading, watching and listening to wise people, but I haven't had my opinion yet.

We have only one chance to live so we have to try to be as full of life as possible because it's the simpliest way to happiness

I think no. People on "die bed" should take wrong decisions, because of painful moment. "God is giving live ans God is taking live."

It's really hard to say if people have the right to die how they choose. At one hand, it's our live and we can do whatever we want to, it's our decision if want to die or live. But on the other hand leave family and friends because of the hardships of life is really selfish. We need to think over, especially people who want to commit suicide, are we really that selfish to ruin lives of our loved ones? :-(

I think that shouldn't have the right to die how they choose because sometimes they aren't on some occasions conscious they decisions.

YES they do ONLY if they had the choice to exist.

Our choices are only between those 2 point i.e. when we come to existence and death.

To answer the question...absolutely. Not because it's a "right," whatever that means, but because there is no reason whatsoever for anyone to be able to regulate how someone else lives their life. And that includes how someone else dies. Most people would prefer to live than to choose to die early, but if someone chooses to die, there's no reason to stop them from doing so.

I would imagine that just living a healthy lifestyle in general makes people look younger. After all, ageing is a process of deterioration*, and health by definition is the absence of this process.

*if you didn't know, "deterioration," is basically a nice, fancy word for "getting worse." :p

Sometimes we die by accident. I think it's better not to think about being dead. It's better to talk about things that makes us alive and enjoy life.
