I believe that any conscious being has a right to end their conscious at their will regardless of age, health, or social status.
We do not understand the nature of consciousness and sentience, we do not understand the nature of death and it's effect on the consciousness.
There are people out there who may lead lives consumed in mental agony.
If this individual discusses suicide with his or her friends, their friends will try anything in their power to prevent that.
If this person fails a suicide attempt, they may be put on suicide watch or physically prevented from ending their consciousness.
When I was in jail, it saddened me how difficult the institution made it to kill yourself and if you failed, harsh punishments followed.
As it stands, none of us can scientifically and accurately measure the mental pain of another consciousness.
None of us can scientifically compare the state of being conscious with the state of being dead.
The choice of whether to be or not should be left to any consciousness, and anything less is cruel.
Change my view.
