Assisted suicide deal : Comments

By David Leyonhjelm, published 9/7/2018

If assisted suicide becomes legal across the country, it will in part be because of the Australian Building and Construction Commission.

Dave, in seven eights of this article, gives himself a free plug totally unrelated to the subject matter.

Assisted suicide? Obviously unnecessary, with evidence to support the ease and freedom of anybody to choose death by their own hand, in two high profile suicides by jumping in the past few months, from the 280m high Centrepoint Tower Skywalk in Sydney CBD.

I don't believe in suicide in any form, assisted or autonomous. And sometimes the act of emotional turmoil that's only minutes long. Because of something exaggerated out of all proportion.

Yes, she broke your heart and you know you can't live without her! But you do, and more often than not, if you're open to it, met that special someone who is right!

Or be granted a hitherto prohibited miracle cure for your, allegedly terminal condition, even where it has progressed to all compass points in your body.

Only God can make a tree and from the day you were born your final, moment and method of departure was already decided.

Trying to circumvent that destiny, is only going to ensure it will be repeated until the time available for advancement is all exhausted.

Only God has the right to play God. Even if a few soulless pollies without a single (genuine) humanising redeeming feature (Jawhol) choose to think and act otherwise, or for some ulterior motive or financial profit.

Or political gain/publicity?

There is a purpose behind everything, including the manner of your death. And it just doesn't have to be as painful as made out. Given excellent palliative care!

When that pain racked death happens it's more often the product of nefarious profiteering or deferred or heartless, duck-shoved, official responsibility/cost-benefit analysis?

Can't be anti-abortion and for assisted suicide!

Alan B,
It should not be anyone's business in the first place. A lot of people would never entertain the thought of doing away with themselves & a lot fewer children would suffer a miserable childhood if others who are kept by taxpayers kept out of their lives.

Alan B,

<<Only God has the right to play God.>>

Well said.

However, there is a complicating factor. Do you think God approves or allows abortion, euthanasia, self-inflicted suicide, and assisted suicide as his permissions in a sin-wracked world?

David,

<<If assisted suicide becomes legal ... it is hopefully leading to a hearty outcome>>

Assisted suicide -> hearty outcome is an oxymoron, i.e. 'a combination of contradictory or incongruous words' (Merriam-Webster dictionary 2018. s.v. oxymoron).

That's a 'hearty outcome' for David Leyonhjelm's liberal, libertarian ideology but a death knell for compassionate care.
