    Everyone should be free to commit suicide, regardless of medical condition.
    So a perfectly healthy person is just distressed. He wants to commit suicide so he should go and do it?
    So many people can be helped. It's not like depression isn't treatable.
    Do you know how many people have been suicidal but have been brought out of that and have went on to live full and productive lives?
    Now, medical conditions are a different story. If you are in agonizing pain with no hope of recovery, then maybe that is the best option...

    It's their life
    It isn't affecting anyone else
    What is the problem here?

    So?
    That might sound blunt, but that shouldn't matter from a legal point of view.

    Context, people.

    Of course you shouldn't allow a person who is depressed to kill themselves knowing that it's something reversible, this, on the other hand, is not.

    Euthanasia should only be allowed in cases like this where it's obviously needed, no person should be forced to live like this, if it's their wish to end their life, then so be it.

    Actually, the government's job is to protect the general welfare. That means protecting us from ourselves pretty much.
    One man kills himself, leaves his kid and wife devastated. They may spiral into depression, the children will grow up without a father figure and always the thought "My dad killed himself, was it my fault?" YOu may think this scenario doesn't happen but it is the most common.

    I put my stuff in context if you didn't read. I differentiated between this man's medical condition and a selfish yet perfectly healthy person who thinks that a divorce is a reason to end his life and leaving his family and friends destroyed and left to pick up the pieces he left behind.

    I wasn't referring specifically to your post, and yeah, I mostly agree with your opinion, I'm just saying that if euthanasia is ever legalized context is to be taken into account, only people with extreme medical conditions such as this man's should be allowed to end their lives.

    This seems to be a pic of his wife and him 7 years ago or more. Man, I can't imagine what a hell it must be to not move or do pretty much anything. Props for him.
    Reminds me of George Clooney.

    I think everybody has to right to kill themselves, IF they have a good reason like this chap. He is literally "locked in". He has nothing else to do but now use his eyes to send a tweet and probably browse the web, he isn't enjoying his life and there is no cure for his situation therefore I think he has the right to end his life.

    Teenagers and people who are depressed should seek professional help, not go "welp time to end my life". People with syndromes like this, who cannot do shit all and are not enjoying life should be able to end their life if they wish.

    I always figured I'd try and wait it out if I got into a position similar to his.

    If I'm already on the road to death, why not wait it out and see what happens? Maybe one day science'll find me some kind of miraculous way out.

    And if not? Oh well.

    People want to know if I will change my mind because of Twitter. Let's hear the judgement first and maybe I'll tell you.#tony

    He maybe rethinking his decision because now he can communicate to his fans over twitter
