I am honestly disgusted with the way society treats suicide and denies someone the choice to have a safe and painless legal assisted suicide. I’m just tired of it. I have had doctors tell me after I ended up in the hospital from a suicide attempt that things would get better. But then I got out and realized that mental health services were limited or just sucked and were unhelpful and made me feel even worse. I just can’t believe that our society is so pro life yet doesn’t always address the fact that there are not always enough access to services. and if assisted suicide became legal then most of the issues with suicide attempts would disappear. There are a lot of people that have attempted suicide and failed and ended up with bad health issues that in some cases are irreversible and permanent. So why the hell would society deny legal
Suicide? It’s funny how so many people are pro choice for abortion but aren’t pro choice for legal suicide. When you think about it, abortion and suicide are very similar in some ways. If people do not have access to a safe legal abortion, then they will likely try to do it at home which could lead to bad outcomes. It’s the same exact thing with suicide. People are attempting suicide despite it being unavailable, and some are ending up with horrible outcomes because they failed. Just seems pretty obvious that if assisted suicide was easily obtainable then less people would be ending up in the ER with bad side effects because they failed.

Putting doctors and medical staff at the center of the euthanasia decision process (requiring terminal medical condition) is very wrong. Doctors are supposedly to be under the hypocritical oath. Most of them are essentially pro-life. They get paid to keep people alive. Actually requiring anyone's approval is wrong. A person should be able to get the required pills or equipment OTC, after signing a few forms, maybe over a period of time, to make sure the decision is not impulsive.

All that I want is to pass away peacefully and it is cruel how the society denies people that option. No one should have to resort to risky and painful methods to end their suffering. Denying people access to suicide methods would not reduce suicide at all. Our right to die should always be respected and to me there is nothing wrong with someone deciding to exit at a time of their own choosing. It is their life and their decision after all.

The fear of failure is the main thing that holds me back from ctb personally and I think that it would make life more bearable for people having the option of a guaranteed, peaceful way to exit. After all, we live in a world where there is so much suffering so it is what we deserve. None of us asked for this horrible life in the first place.

A clinic in Netherland only accept 10% of thousand applications annually. Even Kevorkian said he rejected 97-98% request. This sick society is really sad

Yeah, then relatives have to find the bodies, it's messy, and fully preventable by just legalising suicide assistance. Also some people ctb in a way that endangers others, for example by car

Those clinics are really false hope to most people. If people need to be rich to die peacefully this is one more reason this world is hopeless, people hate this world and want to quit.

Unfortunately, in my country out of some 200 countries in the world today, they make up 100% rejection statistic and they don't seem to reflect in expected way.
We're not even in civilization type 1 of 5 Kardashev scale, yet; too busy with prevention, we're wasting energy and resources prohibition from having a good end of life.

Yes, some time ago, the world seemed to be more hopeful. People looked far ahead, as if humanity would live forever. Today people are more focused on the present, wasting energy fighting each other, imposing on each other trivial rules what other people can or cannot do or say. Energy is wasted on things like crypto/bitcoins, which are really based on the idea of human distrust. While there are plenty of humans around, scientists want to recreate human in machines. As expected, machine also imitates the biases and prejudices of human, but still uses a lot more energy.

Atlantis didn't last. The current civilization is like only 10000 years. Humans have been roaming Earth for a million or more years. Total collapse of civilization is probably a regular thing.
