Machine That Aids Voluntary Death In Human Beings In 16 Seconds Finally Discovered

“Sarco”, a euthanasia machine that can assist people to kill themselves at the click of a button.

Ending your life voluntarily remains one of the most controversial issues that currently exist. Should there be a right to take your own life? Does life itself have an intrinsic value? There are countries like Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland or Japan that contemplate active euthanasia in their legislation as a legal way.

The Sarco is designed so that you can only activate it from within and thus not be able to use it as a machine to kill someone; and a test will be required to determine if the buyer is mentally healthy or not, a diagnosis that will eventually be made by an Artificial Intelligence according to Nitschke.

A Sarco death is painless. There’s no suffocation, choking sensation or 'air hunger' as the user breathes easily in a low-oxygen environment. The sensation is one of well-being and intoxication,” wrote the company’s founder Philip Nitschke for Huffington Post. 

What do you think? Should there be a right to die?
