This is basically an euthanasia thread. I believe that if there is pain in your life, that is too unbearable for you to continue on living, you have the right to die. You can also choose to die sacrificing yourself for someone.

If the decision is made with a clear conscious then yes. Ultimately though death impacts more than 1 person usually so its understandable why this isn't the case.

I believe in death with dignity. I may not agree with suicide under most situations, but some of them are understandable and agreeable.

I dont beilive in the right to anything opposition can prevent, but within the paradigms of scociety I've never understood why in a situation where somepony wishes to die, people will look down upon the person who wishes to die for allowing a loved ones pain to prevent their own, but not on the loved one for doing the exact same thing. Maybe its just the survival instinct telling them dead = bad.

Thinking about it for a minute, I suppose it makes since that the majority isn't suicidal and therefore would find themselves on the losing side of a suicide.

If there in pain and there is nothing that can be done for them, then i dont see a problem with it.

So you believe people have an obligation to be alive except under extreme circumstances?

Pretty much, we can debate on what we mean by extreme circumstances, but unless there is literally nothing that can be done for them I think then they have the right to die.

If someone else's life does not depend on theirs (say, they just had kids) then I wouldn't stop them.

But do you think children are best left in the care of a person with suicidal tendencies?

That depends.

A person with suicidal tendencies either a result of trauma or some kind of other imbalance should not be allowed to kill themselves even if they insist. At least they should undergo therapy. You can say that is forcing a choice on someone but it is for that person's benefit. Death is final but life is filled with possibilities.

However in cases where death is unavoidable, imminent and only extreme pain awaits. Suicide should always be an option.

The missing of which cannot be lamented by the dead.

But can be lamented by the living, so you have an obligation.

Just because two morons slapped their bodies together and shit out a baby doesn't mean that baby is obligated to live.

Everyone has the right to, absolutely. But since death pretty much means game over, which is proven since the discovery of the part of the brain which produces conscientiousness. Which pretty much means any expierience is better than death, its up to you if you want to die.

So who has more of a right to be selfish?
