Assisted Suicide?

Should someone suffering a terminal illness with zero (or less than 0.001% chance for math nerds) chance of recovery, who is of sound mind and capable of understanding and making their own decisions be able to seek assisted suicide from a medical professional?

We all know how the courts ruled in regards to Kevorkian, so mine is obviously an ethical and not a legal question.

If not for modern medical technology a person in that state would probably have passed on. Yes?

I wouldn't want to tell someone they couldn't but I don't think I could do that myself. If they would be able to do themselves by whatever means but wanted to do it painless and quick I guess it's their decision.

Always reminds me of the 81 Richard Dreyfuss flick, "Whose life is it anyway". I'm too much of an optimist and value the beauty of life to take that route, but agree it should be an option for others.

Unfortunately not always. My Dad's neighbor had some form of terminal cancer and was a young guy (under 40) with small children. He tried the full chemo route etc and it had spread too far to be non terminal. He spent the last year of his life in varying degrees of pain where all the doctors could do was attempt to manage his pain with narcotics and prescribing medical marijuana.

You could probably argue that the rounds of chemo he did, gave him that last year, but we'll never know how long he would have lasted if he hadn't done the chemo, and arguably his quality of life might have been better had he not done it.

I've got all kinds of rules. There needs to be a wake with a live band and a couple kegs of HB. Oh yeah, she can't put me in the ground when it is raining. Too depressing.

I've always thought I'd like to be cremated, then flushed. The thought of a bunch of people dressed in black, crammed in my bathroom, standing around a toilet while Amazing Grace plays in the background is about the funniest thing I can imagine.

I do have a strange sense of humor though.

I think if you willingly enter into an agreement with someone and then attempt to secretly violate the terms of the agreement, it's almost always unethical, whether the agreement is with a credit card company, Comcast, mega-box store or 3-card monte dealer (Maybe we should have a separate poll to rank the ethics of those 4 entities).

If you are given the wrong change or charged the wrong price, I think it's your ethical duty to correct the mistake, although if you wanted to apply some sort of crude cost-benefit analysis, I'd be okay with that; I'm not saying you should drive 50 miles to fix someone else's 10 cent mistake. If you would complain about being given insufficient change or being overcharged, I can't see how you would treat the situation differently just because you're on the other side. Especially if you invest in stocks or mutual funds.

The PTA paid for the items for a specific function and these are the leftovers. Ethical or unethical?
Unethical.
