19. Prohibiting assisted suicide forces people to die earlier than they want. Doesn’t that deprive them of their charter right to (part of their) life?

  • If a person chooses to commit suicide, that is their decision.  The loss of a few months for some people must be weighed against the potential loss of many others’ lives. Any legalized system of assisted suicide is susceptible to mistakes and abuses. By saying that disabled people are eligible to be killed while others are not, the government is giving these abuses a stamp of approval.
