    Just sayin'.

    Your directed response:  i understand.

    •  No, I asked because it has a bearing on the answer (3+ / 0-)

      All of my posts in response to questions about whether suicide should be legal start with whether a person is of sound mind. I was asked my opinion on a specific case, and so that is the first question that has to be asked.

      Your hide rate is without merit.

      We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.

      I don't think he was asking about the mental ill to be a dick.. think he was confused about my comments.. as evidenced at his continued dodging of pointed direct questions.=.. but he is RASA so who knows?

          has a history of hide-rating on this website.

          When asked about your mental status, regarding a choice of suicide vs any other choice?

          The body of clinical work sides with "mentally ill" always.
          It's what makes physician-assisted so toxic to the rest of the medical community.

          "You can't say he's in his right mind."
          "We can't play GOD now can we?"
          "Who are you to say it's hopeless?"
          Preconception of mental illness.
          Suicide vs. us meddling with your body and mind is always a bad answer.  
          At the least, we could make a case-study of you.  
          At the best, we can collect a few hundred thousand dollars more of insurance pay-outs.

          Doctors, always play god, it's in the job description.  
          Cancer?  We can cut that out.
          It wasn't an accident, wasn't something you picked-up on that non-immunized trip to the Third World, so it's "god-given".
          Meddling with that, is making you - the doctor - god.
          Assuming there is a god, other than my cat.

          As to when to throw in the towel?  I DO think the patient has the final say.  
          However, the first step to prevent this, is for the Attending Physician to claim mental incapacity, and have either a gullible relative or court-appointed conservator take over medical decision making.
          "I want to die.  I want all extraordinary measures stopped.  Enough."

          Your dad isn't in his right mind.  There's a cure right around the corner.  Five or Fifteen years from now, the FDA will release a new protocol, and we'll see no more of this kind of illness.  YOU need to sign these forms, and have the court appoint you medical guardian.
          So, I'm certainly dead-set against this "are you mentally ill" discussion, as it masks a presumption.

          As to the RASA comment?  "Repeatedly dodging pointed questions" seems to be the standard used.

          If you're answering pointed questions, there must be no harm, no foul.  
          If you're not answering, as it's not fitting with your agenda???

          •  So what. (0+ / 0-)

            Being "dead set against" a discussion does not justify a hide-rate. And that's not what you said justified it in the first place.

            And yet you continue to follow a double standard, hide-rating my post even after it was explained to you not just by me, but by Kasoru himself and not hide-rating his dickish comment.

            Whatever.

            We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.
