Yes, provided that there is no chance to survive after all avenue have been exhausted and the family of the ill patient have been counselled and have come to an acceptance/approval to the ill patient's situation and they are not going to profit from the situation.

@98SVZCJGreen answered…3wks

Yes, but there should be a commission to ensure that the government is not prioritising MAiD as a low cost alternative to social welfare programs

@96FVK5J answered…4mos

No, unless they have are in extreme pain, have seen multiple therapists, and fully understand the choice

@95BTXD3 answered…5mos

This is very situational. My only opinion is that as long as theyre truly happy to do so.

@94986M5Labor answered…6mos

If they have no chance of surviving and go through the psychological examination.

@93BK4M8Labor answered…8mos

Yes but only if they have had a psychological examination, do not have any chance of surviving and have a painless death.

@9353BBF answered…9mos

No; assisted suicide is a permanent decision, which places already vulnerable individuals; the elderly, terminally ill, mentally ill, disabled and others, in a situation to be exploited, and denies one the ability to live their life fully, in whatever stage of life they may be; increases in government funding and investment into palliative care, psychiatric care, general practice and healthcare overall are needed.

@934MVM4 answered…9mos

People who are terminal or severely debilitated should be able to be as comfortable as needed reguardless if the medication may shorten there life span

@9346PS9 answered…9mos

If they have only a few days left to live and they understand the choice they’re making then they should be free to end their own lives. This should remain exactly like this and not differ, as there should be no other reason for a population decline as they struggle and no incentive to cause this (even then, consequences for products that could make you terminally ill could be incentivised, e.g. cigarettes, chemicals, etc)

@9335B8L answered…9mos

We should be increasing supports to ill people to meet all their needs, so that dying isnt a more viable option to them than living.

@93359CM answered…9mos

Yes but government should do everything possible to fix structural and quality of life issues beforehand, so no one is dying just because they can't get accessible house (as seen in Canada this year).

@9334NKV answered…9mos

Only if the is no chance of recovery and they are not forces or coerced into taking that decision.

@9324Y8Y answered…9mos

@92SX6NV answered…9mos

Yes, and so should those with permanent disability that impedes quality of life

@92SRXKY answered…9mos

Yes, but only if there is no chance to survive certain illnesses such as terminal cancer, and they will like be in tremendous physical pain

@92SNPNP answered…9mos

They should be allowed enough medication to cover the pain, even if it means that they stop breathing.

@92K3CC3 answered…10mos

Once they have had emotion support to know they are not a ‘burden’

@92JWQHM answered…10mos

These two options should be combined: Yes, but only if there is no chance they will survive their illness Yes, but only after a psychological examination to show they fully understand this choice
