(Gonchar, D 2014).” “The right to life and the right to die are not two rights, but two aspects or descriptions of the same right (Benatar, D, 2010).”

While I believe a person has every right to die when they choose, they also have the right to choose life.

That is a personal decision and nobody, not even the state has the right to intervene. “Those who think assisted suicide and euthanasia are immoral should not be forced to kill others (Gonchar, M, 2014).”

We put down sick or OLD animals all the time. Why can we decide their fate, but not our own. Assisted suicide would be the most humane choice for someone that is... Show More
