The act of taking one's own life. Sometimes the only option for people who suffer endlessly with emotional and/or physical pain. The Swiss suicide clinic, Dignitas, should be applauded for allowing people with terminal illnesses to easily and painlessly free themselves from their ongoing suffering. The clinic should also allow people with depression and other debilitating mental illnesses to die peacefully in the same way. At the end of the day, if a person really does not want to live in this world any longer, and if freedom really does exist, then that person should have the right to end their own life, without any kind of judgement or intervention from others.
