Which is the best country for assisted suicide?

I just want to go inside the clinic and say "hello, can you please kill me?" and then die. Does someone have experience and knows which clinic kills you the fastest? Thank you.

Switzerland. But the boredom might get you first.

What a sad topic. It’s more worthwhile to be loving towards others than self destructive. It’s heartbreaking that no worth can be found for these people and “compassion” only in the business of wiping someone out.

Why not go for somewhere you can get murdered easily? Same thing really and you can even be remembered as a martyr.

I dare you to come back and say that when you're terminally ill, in pain all the time and subject to humiliation like not being able to do anything for yourself.

R5 Walking around hoping to be murdered is a fool's errand but 'suicide by cop' is a thing. Get a gun and wave it about, threaten to shoot people up (do NOT shoot anyone, however) and the cops will probably do it for you.

Contact Death With Dignity, Debs.

But you already knew that.

OP the US is. A short wait depending on your state and then you can be gone. Suicide by Second Amendment if someone is actually serious and not just looking for a thread topic .

And slightly off topic

Why is it that when the state does an assisted killing we often get stories of terrible suffering and several tries and lots of unplesant suffering?

And they seem to be looking for more humane ways to admin assisted killings if for no other reason than to stop these terrible stories of suffering.

I wonder if assisted suicide in countries that offer it is as pleasant as we are Jed to believe.

Do you mean death row prisoner executions R11?

R12

Yes

So you're talking about death row executions: of course, there's a big campaign to abolish that so they're going to hype up all potential/unknown negative effects of methods. (Do not necessarily believe the propaganda.) However, I can't see most of the methods being much worse or better than a 'natural' death which has more chance of being painful, humiliating and drawn-out.

R13/R11 - assisted suicide and the death penalty are two incredibly different things. I don't support the death penalty but I do support having the choice to take up assisted suicide if a person wants to for whatever reason. That's our choice not the choice of controlling religions. I live in a country where there is legal assisted suicide and I would seriously consider it if I were diagnosed with dementia or a terminal illness which became too much to live with. It's good to have the choice if it's ever needed.

What if you don’t want to leave a mess for some poor person to stumble upon?

by Anonymousreply 17February 12, 2024 1:06 PM

The Death by Dignity law is very limited. You must be diagnosed as terminal and expected to die naturally within 6 months. It’s really only meant to be for people in a lot of physical pain.

A walk in the woods and a call to 911. Police and fire deal with this kind of mess all the time.

by Anonymousreply 19February 12, 2024 1:45 PM

Why do you ask? Are you terminally ill? The world is cruel, OP. If you court death she will come. Do you have weapons? Please do not harm yourself.

by Anonymousreply 20February 12, 2024 2:33 PM

I know enough about plants and what to use, then I have a stockpile of narcotics to push it along.

by Anonymousreply 21February 12, 2024 5:52 PM

Not only that in Oregon, R18. It takes ***three*** doctors independent of one another to each conclude that you have only six months to live and, when it comes to it, you must be able to administer the fatal dose to yourself. No one else can do it for you.

But once you meet those criteria, there you go.

I just want to empathize.

If you can’t it’s because you spend too much time in the gym working out and with good results. I read it on DL so it must be true.
