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.

Death comes in people at least we didn't expect. Just like life is unpredictable so as death.

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? {-;

I like your writing! It looks like an essay [Ok, this post is so off-topic but I had to say it]

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.
