    Except that it is murder.

    what killing yourself is murder? no its SUICIDE.

    and a doctor assisting your death- is it murder- no again
    its ASSISTED SUICIDE.

    get your facts straight

    I think we'd all be amazed how much of an average doctor's time isn't spent making complex ethical decisions about whether man was or wasn't meant to cross these lines. Sure they must pop up every now and then, but mostly I'd imagine its spent prescribing people things to cure their case of sniffles.

    none- thats the point.

    she starts rambling on about suicide and assisted suicide being murder when it isnt.

    doctors have a hard time as it is, and always take assisted suicide seriously- obviously they dont see it as the easy way out. the easy way out would be just to say no, and not get involved into something that might cost your job. those who do assist suicide also have a lot at stake, esp. in the uk where current laws are ambiguous.

    well does the patient willing want to shorten his or her life? if he/she does, and the doctor prescribes the drug, then its assisted suicide- not murder.

    and with that you prove that you have never opened an ethics book in your life.
    its the most widely qouted possible scenario for a doctor.

    its easy to be dogmatic about the black and white things in life - assigning with very little thought what is black, and what is white, but very hard to follow.


    thinkabout it. THe man in front of you in his bed is terminally ill with colon cancer. he is screaming in agony.
    "PLEASE THE PAIN IS TOO MUCH!!!"
    He is sweating like mad, his pulse is racing, there isno doubt he is in searing agony. He's had his maximum safe dose of morphine. Any more might slow his breathing down and kill him.
    Sorry, but you can't have any more.
