Right To Die?

As humans we have basic rights and freedoms, in free societies, that are expected. Where we work, how we worship, what we eat, how we play, how we look.....but not how we die.

Suicide is a taboo topic. Assisted suicide even more so. It is ironic that people are ok with sending men and women to die for country, demand the death penalty for criminals, but even hint at wanting to end your pain and suffering and your soul is damned to hell. How is it that we show more compassion to our pets than to our kin?

The right to die is a concept based on the belief that a human being is entitled to end their own life or to undergo voluntary euthanasia. ... Other religious views on suicide vary in their tolerance, and include denial of the right as well as condemnation of the act. ~https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_to_die
Assisted suicide is a serious topic. Perhaps taking a satirical look at it may make it easier to have a conversation.
