I have never witnessed in any debate among Republicans seeking the nomination for president of any discussion regarding the right of individuals to commit suicide. Ron Paul constantly proclaims the right of individuals to decide their life choices, but he never engages with the issue of assisted suicide. A group of Swedish MPs have formed a task force whose goal is to legalize assisted suicide.
Eva Flyborg, a supporter of euthanasia argues, “it is not worthy of Sweden in the 2000s for seriously ill people to b e tormented and tortured to death.” She, and her group of MPs, argue that individuals should have the right to determine the end of their lives. A recent case involved a 57 year old doctor who allowed the death of a premature baby with brain damage who was going to die within a few months.
So, who decides life–state or I?
