Report No. 210

Right to die? - As a normal rule, every human being has to live and continue to enjoy the fruits of life till nature intervenes to end it. Death is certain. It is a fact of life. Suicide is not a feature of normal life. It is an abnormal situation. But if a person has right to enjoy his life, he cannot also be forced to live that life to his detriment, disadvantage or disliking. If a person is living a miserable life or is seriously sick or having incurable disease, it is improper as well as immoral to ask him to live a painful life and to suffer agony. It is an insult to humanity.

Right to live means right to live peacefully as ordinary human being. One can appreciate the theory that an individual may not be permitted to die with a view to avoiding his social obligations. He should perform all duties towards fellow citizens. At the same time, however, if he is unable to take normal care of his body or has lost all the senses and if his real desire is to quit the world, he cannot be compelled to continue with torture and painful life. In such cases, it will indeed be cruel not to permit him to die.
