Let's say you get incurable cancer, like metastatic prostate cancer. Do Chinese people choose to die a slow and painful death being a burden on their family and society, or do they choose to get assisted suicide?|
In White culture, they have a very strong belief that when you become terminally ill, you should strive to become the greatest burden as possible to your family and society, and you should try to live as long as possible in an unproductive, excruciatingly painful, and vegetative state. One must never get assisted suicide in White culture, it is to be considered the severest form of illegal crime and morally reprehensible. In White culture, physical and emotional pain is considered a good thing, as well as being a financial burden.
I am worried that once I get a bad medical condition, I will not have any means to get assisted suicide, and I dread having to do things in a messy way, such as jump off a building, go skydiving without a parachute, cut my wrist, overdoes on acetaminophen, or shoot myself in my head. Plus, my father just got metastatic prostate cancer, so I may have to help him commit suicide: he is in pain.
