lots of people would be. people would be lined up for miles. but society frowns upon this idea, so most likely, it will never happen, at least not in our lifetime it won’t.

I don’t know…I know that for sure I would be…

i’d be first in line, camping outside the door, for days, weeks, months on end. i’d give every last possession (which isn’t much) and every last dime (which also isn’t very much).

honestly, i wish there was a way we could donate our organs. so many people out there in need of hearts and lungs, and to think that there are some of us who’d be willing to donate these organs, even if it meant ending our own lives. i see beauty in this, really, but society still just finds it so “inhumane’. whatever. fuck society and it’s hypocrisy.

You can easily sign up to be an organ donor.

1. Register with your state’s Organ Donor Registry.
2. Select ‘Yes’ to organ donation when you apply for your driver’s license (or mod it if you’ve already got one).
3. Sign a donor card.

Easy peasy.

I still think there is a very small slim slight sliver of hope, but like you said, not in our lifetime. Look at some countries such as Switzerland or other Scandinavian countries…assisted suicide is legal but I think only if the patient is in severe incurable pain/disabled or something. But at least that’s something right? Maybe one day people who truly want to die to be allowed the kindness of doing so. Maybe they will require people to go through counseling or whatever at first…just to make sure…but after that if one’s an adult and one really doesn’t want to be here, I see no reason that one should be forced to stay.

i’m already an organ donor. they only collect your organs post-mortem. i’m saying, i wish i could just walk into a hospital, and say that i’d like to donate my heart, or donate all of my blood. they won’t do that, because that would mean ceasing my life, which is considered inhumane. i don’t see how it is. if someone’s willing to give up their life, so someone else can live or live a better one, i see that as a beautiful thing. so many people toss themselves off bridges and what not. i see this as a much more humane and civil way to go out, especially when you advocate the right to die, but hey, that’s just me. i’m nobody. cheers, mate.

Excatly! What if your death can help others by donating your organs,your death would not be in vain,since we live in a society that uses people anyways.

Cause of Death: Suicide 11/18/2017 - 11:16 pm

I guess 20,000-40,000 in a year

Good estimation

I understand 42,000 Americans off themselves annually. But it takes 25 attempts to get one complete. If assistance, materials, places, encouragement, privacy, guidance and counseling for fear and guilt issues were legal while at the same time unwanted medical and police interventions became illegal, I could see attempts being essentially 100% successful. That works out to 1,050,000 annually. Funeral business would go up about 40 percent at that rate.
Funny thing is, Suicide is not illegal in the US but a right-to-die is extended only to the terminally ill in a just a few states. It is not constitutional right whatsoever.

I think an exponentially increasing amount of people each year would take that option until society would cease to function.

That is a hard idea to wrap my head around, however, a philosopher once postulated a similar idea by saying it is only an inexplicable aversion to death that keeps human kind from voluntary annihilation. From what I observe and hear it seems like you and he are both right.

I’d be the first in line

Suicide is already legal (it was decriminalized in the 80s). What you are talking about is having a doctor kill you which is not the same. I’m all for suicide but I don’t expect anyone to do it for me.

I really don’t know the difference. Either killing yourself directly or hiring someone to is still suicide.
