The provision of assisted suicide is humane and it is mercy. If for no other reason than these it must be legalised. Without the legalisation of assisted suicide the act of suicide is not legitimised. Without recognition of the legitimacy of suicide there is the blatant cruelty which exists today: a society and culture exists which is so devoid of humanness and mercy that assisted suicide is a crime. This society and culture full of blatant cruelty is why I need to die. There is no mercy for me because of the belief that unbearable suffering is okay and forcing me to endure unbearable suffering is okay. It is not okay. It is evil.
