In Belgium, euthanasia is legal, which means the state will assist people who wish to commit suicide. Most cases involve people who are dying, and want to avoid unnecessary physical pain. But a growing number are for people who are in mental pain, and want to end it all.
It should be within our rights to take our own lives when the circumstances warrant it. That means we must be prepared to accept laws in favor of assisted suicide. This becomes even more important in light of potential technologies that could grant us extreme longevity.
