If a man in this situation wants to die,

Assuming he's mentally fit to do so, I'd say let him have that choice. The hard part's determining whether or not he's mentally fit to make that decision. (talk)22:17, 31 January 2012

Isn't wanting to kill oneself a sign of not being mentally fit? (talk)18:21, 30 April 2012

No, it's not. Just because we disagree with someone else's value judgement doesn't in itself make them mentally unfit.

The justice system turns a blind eye when it suits the establishment (eg, the deaths of Professor and Mrs. Korner in Bristol ten years ago). There is one law for the rich and one for the poor. That's what must be changed.
