article imageSwiss suicide clinics 'helping depressives die'

By RobotGod     Jun 3, 2007 in World
Prosecutors are calling for tougher regulations on Switzerland's assisted suicide clinics after uncovering evidence that some of the foreign clients they help to die are simply depressed rather than suffering incurable pain.
In some cases apparently, clients are given drugs that help them to die within hours of showing up. Yeah, just forget about trying to determine if a person is depressed or not, if they are here we will just process them and give them what they want.
Forget the fact that they might not be in their right mind at the moment.
On another note related to this story. When did life become so cheap? It happened a long time ago, but the exact point, I can not pinpoint.
It is like anything else, people simply do their jobs and never ever go the extra mile out of caring and compassion. They are automatons. But they deal in life and death.
If someone wants to die, that is their own personal right, but people have to make sure that the person is in a state where they can make that decision rationally.
