What is your opinion on assisted suicide?

Case 1: Terminating the life of a clinically brain-dead person by the decision of others.
Case 2: Assisting the suicide of a person who is terminally ill, or other terminal conditions who is cognitive and capable of making own decision.
Case 3: Assisting the suicide of a person who is otherwise physically able but wishing to commit suicide.



I think "Assisted Suicide" should be allowed if the person wants to.
And, in Terri Schivao's case, IMO, after 2 years or so and they are showing no improvement, assisted suicide should be a recommended option.
If it were me, I don't want to live my life in a hospital bed doing nothing and in that condition. dry.gif
But, at the same time, I wish they made the death quick, not her starving to death.


Recently, my English class had an assignment on debate topics and we had to give a speech on our topic, and this one girl choose Assisted Suicide and the Terri Schivao case.
Beside Terri Schivao case, she showed a clip of a man, about 25 or so, who had mental and physical problems, and at one point the guy in this case was having a really hard time saying "to" in "I want to die", it was that bad.
After showing the clip of this guy, my classmate went back to her speech, and said "I understand that it is a difficult and emotional time and sometimes you want to give up. But to people with problems like (whats his name), I say 'suck it up'! God gave you life and you should be thankful that you have it!"
I was shocked she said that!! ohmy.gif She has no idea what it was like for that guy in the clip, or Terri Schivao and the family, and she has the nerve to say "suck it up" mad.gif
