HEALTH NEWS: Desmond Tutu Prefers to Kill Himself, Says He is Done in This Life

Euthanasia or Assisted Suicide is any act that intentionally helps another person kill themselves, for example by providing them with the means to do so, most commonly by prescribing a lethal medication. Assisted
Suicide is only recommend if a person suffers severe health pain or depression without any chance of recovery or cure. Many countries allow terminally ill patients to legally end their lives with a doctor's supervision. Belgium, Lexemboug, Canada, Netherlands are countries that legalized Assisted suicide. 5 American States (California included) also allow sick people to legally end their lives.

South Africa's Archbishop Desmond Tutu has revealed that he wants to have the option of an assisted death. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate and anti-apartheid campaigner said that he did "not wish to be kept alive at all costs", writing in the Washington Post newspaper on his 85th birthday. Mr Tutu came out in favour of assisted dying in 2014, without specifying if he personally wanted to have the choice. He was hospitalised last month for surgery to treat recurring infection.

There is no specific legislation in South Africa governing assisted dying. But in a landmark ruling in April 2015, a South African court granted a terminally ill man the right to die, prompting calls for a clarification of the laws in cases of assisted death. The Anglican Church - of which Mr Tutu is a member - is staunchly against assisted dying.

This is not the first time Mr Tutu has come out against the church, however. He is an outspoken supporter of gay rights, and has openly criticised conservative Christian attitudes to homosexuality. In 2013, he said would "refuse to go to a homophobic heaven" in favour of "the other place". At the time, he added: "I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this."

Earlier this year, he blessed his daughter Mpho's marriage with her female partner, despite South African Anglican law on marriage stating that "holy matrimony is the lifelong and exclusive union between one man and one woman".

QUESTIONS:
1. Would you support Assisted Suicide Bill to be Passed into Law in Nigeria?
2. Is anything wrong for a sick person to demand death by killing himself?
3. For Christians & Muslims, what is the take of Assisted Suicide in Quran or Bible?
YOUR VIEWS. THANKS
