Sorry, but you created your mess, you don't get to run away from it.
Who are you to tell another person how to live, or not live, their own life?
An opinionated slightly arrogant forum poster, you didn't think you held exclusive rights, did you?
if it will make you feel better I'll try and wrap all my statements about hypothetical situations with an "In my opinion" future. If I actually thought anyone was going to read what I said in TDPF, and suddenly change their mind about a life altering decision, I'd have to graduate myself from slightly arrogant to full on egomaniac.
I should slightly correct my earlier statement though.
I'm not sure that that goes so far as a right to actively end their life
should have been stated as
I'm not sure that that goes so far as a right to actively end their life for no medical reasons
