Some interesting info on this topic showing which countries allow / don't allow 'dying with dignity': []

In Canada assisted dying is legal for those who are terminally ill but the laws have many restrictions; don't go far enough. Dying with Dignity is a group that works towards changing that: []


Absolutely. Unless I have a stroke, heart attack or accident, I plan to end my life when I'm ready to be finished. I haven't put my wishes for treatment into an official document yet but my family has been clearly informed about my wishes and plans.


Absolutely. I think we should all have the right to choose a dignified end whenever we have had enough.


Yes, even if there is no assistance.

If my quality of life was greatly impacted or I was going to be a burden to my family and a drain on state resources..why bother dragging out the inevitable any longer...


There are a lot of variables that could impact that decision, but I wouldn't rule it out.

Yes. If the suffering far outweighed the enjoyment of life, I would. I think the moral imperative comes from the idea of rejecting as not good what God has pronounced good - that is, life. I'm not sure how our ancient cave-dwellers thought about it. They needed on hands on deck to get things done but if you were more a liability than a help....






Recreational drugs , ciggarettes and alcohol is how i plan to go

I would like to go like the dude in Soylent Green - pastoral scenes and beautiful music. I wouldn't refuse a few drinks to make me mellow.
