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 :)

Not everyone will agree with me but I think that people shouldn't be the right to die. God gives us life and only he can decide when we die.

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.
