I made a poll!

I've always liked the concept of it, but I highly doubt it'll ever come to fruition.Sounds good, the concept of it.
But eh...I don't trust the government.
I mean who knows what they will do to my body. What if they give me a sedative and use me for whatever the >berries< experiment and......etcI've always liked the concept of it, but I highly doubt it'll ever come to fruition.
In not trusting the government, do you mean 'they won't ever allow this' or 'Things would end up going wrong if this did happen to be legalized'?
So I'm the 1 joker who voted "Euthanasia is wrong", but I wanted to explain my answer. It has to do with what Aity said... I think suicide, true killing-of-self, should be a very personal thing. I think the moment you feel your life slip away, without any help from anyone else, without any stupid distractions like doctors and crying hypocrites and lawyers or whatnot, could be the greatest individual victory a soul could ever know.Just rather die alone in peace then with some "professionals" watching me. Better sell the euthanasia pill.
Would a yeah of feeling utterly despairing in life - despite no physical ailments & having had various anti-ds be enough ? Apparently I cant have therapy - because of feeling suicidal- it’s too “risky” and I highly doubt it would help anyway . Talking therapy can only do so much - especially when it is offered far far too late down the roadHonestly, I feel that a person should have to go through lots of screenings to make sure this was really what they wanted to do. I don't want people making impulse decisions.
I have though to do that by using ia that will follow you during several month, since it seems new ia can read your emotion by using the scan of all facial muscles, tone of voice, while you answer an interview . It won't miss any sign.I chose that one (euthanasia no matter what) because there was no option between that and having to be screened by a psych doc. That type of gatekeeping would still end up keeping genuine and longtime sufferers out. But really I do believe there are cases where it should not be made available, namely in impulsive individuals with truly temporary problems. People of which the platitude “suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem” actually applies to.
So basically we need androids.
I don’t think human beings are capable of judging these things in their fellow man without their own head butting in the way.
Unless solutions are obvious, it seems the avenue to death should always remain in one’s own hands.
