    I saw this thread on Facepunch and found it interesting, so now I'm sharing it. A man is going to commit suicide in 51 hours, well actually about 34 hours now, and he's online answering questions about his life, his disease, assisted suicide, and various other things, before he pulls the plug on himself.

    The man, known as 'Lucidending' on Reddit is suffering from an incurable form of cancer and is in a lot of pain, and so he wants to just end his suffering now with dignity. He lives in Oregon, where it is legal to kill yourself under certain circumstances, and his doctor is setting things up so all he has to do is push a button and he'll be injected with drugs that will kill him.

    Fucking Oregon.

    Try to talk him out of it. *Legal* suicides are still just suicides, and *assisted* suicide is just legalized murder.

    There's a big difference between living and being alive.

    You would think of it like that.
    I hope you never have to live through what this man is living through.
    No one should be forced to go through that if they don't have to.

    This is from his posts. I really like the fact he lost his house. I hope he has a peaceful death, and goes quickly.

    Fuck off, you crack whore. You have no idea of what I've had to live through or what I've witnessed.

    BTW, everyone can opt to kill themselves at any time. When the state condones it, it's just state sponsored murder. You should look into the egregious abuses that went on in the Netherlands when they decided to embrace eugenics. Er..I mean, euthanasia. Particularly post-birth abortion and non-consensual euthanasia. Not that you would care, I'm sure you have no problem with the slaughter of people who are viewed as a burden to someone..anyone...even themselves...

    crack whore? really?
    I deal with end of life care every day in my job, death is terrible. If people want to die, the state should not be allowed to tell them what they and their doctor can do.

    The state never did, you retard. That's a lie perpetrated by people who want to practice genetic engineering and eugenics.

    They count on brain-dead Lusers, btw.

    Really, the state never said assisted suicide is illegal?
    And I had no idea death with dignity translated into eugenics.

    Helping a dying man to end his life on his own terms instead of suffering and waiting to die at the whim of his disease is not eugenics.
