We are told, from the time we are born, that everyone has the right to live. However, in this country at the present time, we do not have a right to die.
Of course. Assisted suicide is unethical.
But is living really a right if we have no other legal choice?
Well, to me it's like saying that we have a right to religion, but only the practice of Hinduism is allowed.
But if people didn't have the right to life, then homicide would be legal.
Homicide and suicide are close cousins with one vital difference: a homicide victim is not the one who decides upon his death.
So you're saying that a person should have the right to life and death, but only by his own choice?
I guess so.
What about abortion then?
Let's not even go into that. Maybe another day.
