Assisted Suicide

It is legal in Switserland, we currently had a wave of debate regarding this issue in Norway and it seemed people in somewhat accidental demographics were split on the ethics of it.

The argument against, which came across rather absurd were primarily that the doctors should be pardoned such responsebility (both in the action itself and the judge of the seriousness case by case). Imagine having insane amounts of pain, zero psychological pleasures a functioning arm only to be set for life in that very scenario with close to zero hope for the future due to the emotions of some doctors.

It's really stupid that euthanasia isn't allowed in so many countries.

There's not a single good argument against euthanasia.

It's illegal only because people can't think rationally about it. And such stupidity pisses me off. The laws are supposed to be based on reason and not on some stupid irrational emotions.

It would lessen the suffering in the world.

Make it legal immediately.

At the general minset our doctors have currently, it would be a bad idea to legalize euthanasia.

Commonsense will prevail eventually.
