Unpopular Opinion: Opposition to physician-assisted suicide is immoral

Tears for Fears - I Love You But I'm Lost

If you've heard that song before, bravo. I thought I knew all TFF songs, but I heard it for the first time last week! 

From Losing My Religions:

Why oh why do we think we can tell anyone that they can’t end their life in as painless a way possible? Who do we think we are? We let “any butt-reaming asshole” bring any number of new lives into existence, regardless of circumstance, regardless of how much the child will suffer. Yet we deny those same people the right to end their own life? Crazy.

Not that there aren’t issues. But we should deal with how we treat the elderly rather than denying individuals the ability to control their own life.

Let’s hope Switzerland’s death pods become a thing.
