Should prisoners with a life sentence, be allowed a "death with dignity" type option?
Though they were sentenced for a serious offense and got the death sentence, still they are human beings and they have their own rights... since they have left with this in the end at least they should have that option at least...
Did they allow the person or persons they killed die with dignity? Prisoner have all the right they deserve and then some. They should be killed in front of young offenders as a lesson I say and see how much better the world becomes.
no they shouldn't be allowed. the whole point of "life" is to punish them for a long time for something they did. letting them end their lives would end the punishment.
Considering that one does not forfeit all of his or her civil rights when convicted of a crime, I say why not? At the very least everyone should be allowed to end their own existence if they so desire. We could televise it. It could become the new world Collesium. What an effective way to distract the public that would be.

Why is it not morally and legally OK to let a person sentenced to death end himself in dignity?When dismissed from a company for a crime, my employer allows me to leave in dignity. They do not throw me out like dirt. When sentenced to death for a crime, why cant they allow me to commit suicide in...

If one is to accept death and the entirety of what such a concept portends, is to add longevity to one's life. In denying death, we have made it an unnatural phenomenon, as if it were an outside force and not just a cycle of nature. Dignity is a word and we can all die on a toilet, so then there is...
