Euthanasia Rollercoaster Promises Riders A Euphoric Death

Euthanasia Rollercoaster Promises Riders A Euphoric Death January 17, 2016

Death by Rollercoaster: A Lithuanian designer is creating a euthanasia rollercoaster that would allow people to end their lives with “euphoria and pleasure.”

Lithuanian designer Julijonas Urbona has come up with a novel solution for those seeking an end to life:  blast into oblivion riding the Euthanasia Coaster.

The coaster would deliver a lethal dose of G-Force. The coaster design places the lethal exposure level at one minute of 10 Gs. The coaster would kill anyone who rode it by cutting off oxygen to the brain.

Thus, instead of drifting away as peacefully as possible, which is what many seeking euthanasia choose, one could instead experience a more thrilling end to life.

There’s only room for one rider on the coaster at a time. When he presented the design for the coaster, Julijonas described the experience:

Your blood is rushed to your lower extremities so there is a lack of blood in your brain, so your brain starts to suffocate. When your brain starts to suffocate, people become euphoric.

To date, the full sized euthanasia rollercoaster has not been built, but there is a scale model.

Euthanasia, the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals, continues to be a controversial and often illegal endeavor because many religious groups oppose doctor assisted suicide and other forms of euthanasia in any and all cases.

For example, the Roman Catholic Church strongly opposes physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia.  Speaking for the church, John A. Di Camillo, staff ethicist at the National Catholic Bioethics Center, says the church teaches that life should not be prematurely shortened because it is a gift from God:

We don’t have the authority to take into our hands when life will end. That’s the Creator’s decision.

Yet despite objections to euthanasia based in religious superstition, the public is slowly beginning to recognize that terminally ill people should have the right to end their suffering with a quick, dignified, and compassionate death.

In 2014, Death with Dignity activist Brittany Maynard made headlines by ending her own life after a brave and courageous struggle with with terminal brain cancer. Maynard moved to Oregon after being diagnosed in order to take her own life through Oregon’s progressive and humane Death with Dignity Act.

However, Maynard’s death with dignity was greeted by many religious individuals with contempt and scorn, with many going online to proclaim that Maynard would be spending an eternity in Hell for acting on her brave and courageous decision to end her life.

Last year, in a historic ruling, Canada’s Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional the nation’s law against assisted suicide, ruling that doctors may help patients who have severe and incurable medical conditions to die.
