please kill me for saying that
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...
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.
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 wish he was born in the far future where we can transplant brains into highly advanced near-human android bodies.

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
