the suicide booth, one of the better things in Futurama
lucian · 22-25, M
No. Definitely not. I'd be dead.
totalrandoman · 100+, M
No, you'd be in heaven.
lucian · 22-25, M
yeah.. dead
I have no idea. But probably not since most of the time whatever is making them want to kill themselves is a temporary problem. Wouldn't really fit to use a permanent solution.

That would take the excitement out of everything.,.....but you have a great idea...cause people cost money...Hell...I bet I've cost the US tax payer around a million at least/ Why not just stick around and see what happens?

Christians have a hard time letting abortion slide let alone a suicide clinic

A suicide pill is a bad idea, especially if someone is allowed to leave with it. I don't think making it easier to end one's life is the right answer. Think about how often people make decisions they later end up regretting. Why make it easy to make a decision in the heat of the moment that can't be undone?
totalrandoman · 100+, M
Well, if you do it in the heat of the moment, then it probably feels like the right decision no matter what. It would probably be better for society. Think of how much less population density there would be at all times if it were normalized.

You want to use assisted suicide for population control?!
[c=#BF0080]Insurance companies would love that.. most insurances don't pay out if you commit suicide.[/c]
it exists on a limited basis now. old people and people with terminal illnesses.

dosages of drugs increased until death is hastened.

you're right it should be easier.
totalrandoman · 100+, M
Yeah, I'm talking about convenience. Like I should be able to look forward to the ease of the option ahead of time as a backup plan. Because hospitals don't have any other option than to drug you until you stop complaining if you are in pain. If you are going to die you end up in an odd situation where you're stuck in a hospital or bedridden from the pain until you die, and they can't euthanize you, they have to keep you alive. Could be for weeks or even months. Not worth it if you are going to die.
agreed
totalrandoman · 100+, M
Most of you do not know how much pain you will be in when you die. Wouldn't you want the option to plan ahead for your death if say, you are going to die, are in a lot of pain, and can't afford pain medication for weeks or months, waiting tentatively to die. If suicide were normalized it certainly wouldn't be a problem.
totalrandoman · 100+, M
Millions of people die every day, or maybe thousands... God would have to be pretty heartless. We live in a cruel world. We become emotional about things, and emotions cloud our judgements. If there were less tension over death we would be less emotional over it and able to think about death more clearly. It already is a normal part of life. No sense getting emotional over it. It just makes it more painful.

"We become emotional about things, and emotions cloud our judgements." You just proved exactly why suicide should not be taken lightly and offered as an easy option. Since you believe in god, what is god's stance on suicide?
totalrandoman · 100+, M
If there is a god, an intelligent overseer of life on Earth, then it fixes things so that no one can escape the pain of old age or death. I'd say god doesn't give a damn what you do so long as you die in the end.
