I am believer in the sovereign right of the individual to regulate their own lives as they see fit without interference from any outside source.
It seems illogical to allow extremely dangerous activities (even the simple act of driving a car or more risky a motorbike) which result in hundreds of thousands of casualties and deaths per year worldwide, while in many countries the simple act of peacefully relieving oneself of the pain and suffering of an already terminal illness is denied on pain of imprisonment.
The States in Australia are debating this and Victoria has already taken steps to legalise euthanasia and self death under medical supervision. under very strict conditions. The vote was lost in South Australia by one senator...
Should the right to painless death be extended to all?
Should it be restricted only to those with terminal illness?
Should it be only available under medical supervision and after mandatory counselling or should "death drugs" like Nembutal be available over the counter?
What (if anything) does a god or gods have to do with this?
