I agree if the person has expressed lucidly and determinedly that he/she wants his/her life been ended, we should respect his/her decision. But make sure give him some time, maybe he/she will regre ...

Today I watched HardTalk and it was about this guy .........

I believe he has been trying to get the right to end his life for the last 6 years ......

And certainly his wife is OK with it as she says that if that is what he wants she will support it ........

I even think she is prepared to act on behalf of him ...........

But he does not want his wife to be implicated with the final act ...........

LCS, I suggest you use a rope, or poison, or a jump from a tower. I cheer it for you.


I was just pointing out a better and painless suicide method in a fair and decent manner compared to you considering a slow and painful suicide as a good method.

Your Post was a mere personal attack.

Please refrain from such inpolite Ways of Communication.

Are you as well behaving so arrogant, agressive and mean to your Peers IRL?

He just has to writtenly express his decision a certain time in advance,
be able to do that final step himself,
and be able to make it to Switzerland.

Is it so hard?
In 6 Years he could have as well obtained dutch citizenship, enabling to seek assisted Suicide in the Netherlands, if he does not want to go that far away.

The article states that he is too ill or afflicted to take the journey to Switzerland  ..............

So that just leaves starving to death .........

But he would need permission for that ........

I used to strongly oppose assisted suicide, fearing it may be used by some people who want to commit murder. But seeing this case and reports of a few similar cases in China, I really think the governments should speed up making the right decisions. It's too painful for those who are suffering.  But we have to make sure there is no loophole for those who want to committ murdering.
