Do you think you should be able to decide when you want to die?
If someone asked In your assistance to end their life, would you help them?
I would not help them because it would be illegal and lead to jail time. Also, I am not a medical professional and what if something went horribly wrong? However, I do believe that euthanasia/assisted suicide should be legalized for those who are of sound mind and want to make their own decisions. We put to sleep suffering animals, yet we don't have the same compassion for suffering humans who want to die. I find that very sad.
If they were in merciless and/or prolonged suffering, I can only hope I would be courageous enough to show them the ultimate act of love and compassion.
Of course you can make your life shorter, but not longer. Haven't we hear of people who commit suicide?
If someone asked for your assistance to end their life, would I help them? Why would I want to be involved in murder and make a mess out of myself with the law and with God?
