I see. I guess sometimes this kind of thing is inevitable. By the way, do you have a news report on this or maybe which country is this case from?

Your a murderer as long as you end someone's life with purpose.... You have no right to do so...although it is out of love or sympathy... killing is killing...

There was a case in Singapore I think.. it wasn't assisting in suicide but its how fed up someone has become

A lady had been taking care of her mother for years... and she loves her mom very much until at one point where she couldn't take it anymore that she pushed her mom of a building and she jumped of it after her mom

First of all she was selfish... its very harsh of me to call her selfish but she hasn't any right to kill her mom... Dying won't solve any problem... its only running away... sure you are facing a lot of pain... but won't it be better if you were to suppress the pain and when you are to die... you can say proudly that... I was strong... for I accomplish something others couldn't, and that was to experience this pain and not give up on what I've done to live all this while

I suppose I could dig something more official up, my mom was the nurse who had to take care of him, all the knowlege I have gathered is from her and some doctors down at the hospital. (United States)

Personally, i'm for euthanasia. Its a very debatable issue/matter though, because i believe it started back in the early 1970s? there was a case where a men(in Canada) killed his disabled daughter; under her request; while his other family members was going to church. And the men ended up being charged to 2nd degree murder and had a 10 year sentence, but right now people is debating if we should let him out early (hes' already been Jail for seven years; this case happened 14 years ago). so yeah. but anyhow, this is just one of the many example of euthanasia

there have been a case in England where a women was fighting with the court for a few years, what were she fighting for? She was fighting for "If my husband help me end my own life, don't charge him with murder" she was a disabled person, in her late 60s (this case happened a few years back as well), and she went to every single court possible, she wants to die peacefully; but if she doesn't kill her self she would be dying from choking or unable to bearth. Though when she went to the surprime(spelling) court, they once again, declined her request. Then a week later she died of the death that she was feared of.

those two examples, bought up a lot of debating on whether Euthanasia should be allowed.
e.g: do everyone have the right to end their life? Should your love ones be able to end your life under your request? Should doctors have the choice to end your life, under your request?

A lot of doctors all over the world, have had the request from their patients to "kill me, please!" Theres' this doctor in the U.S.A a few years back (he's now in Jail), (I forgot his RL name) but his nick name was "Dr.Death"

he was a doctor who provided people with a tool (a computer kind of thing) to allow them selves to choose to want to die or not, its like a slide show, where you click for the next slide, each slide shows questions e.g: "If you click yes, you'll be enjucted (some kind of drug) and you'll die, if you pick no, your sesson will now end"

and by doing that, this doctor have helped over 300 people end their own life.

but personally, i think this doctor is a monster, because he vidoe taped one of his patients' death, and sent it to some TV show to show the world. After that, this doctor and his helper(s) was sentenced to jail.

though anyhow, i have only been listing examples on Euthanasia, haven't really been talked about it from my own view, but my view is simple, "Euthanasia is a right that every human have, if you, or i, wants to die, you should have the right to do so under a few rules, one: you're really suffering two: there's no point in keep living three: you'll die sooner or later and in more pain, but if its the doctors choice to kill you, without letting you know, i think thats' wrong and sick"

It should vary from case to case. Not every situation is the same.

You may find this website helpful to your research.

deathwithdignity.org

As someone who has seen more than one terminal elder dying painfully, the death with dignity act has my vote. It is never easy to watch a family member die, it is even harder to deny their request for an easier death when you know full well that there is no hope of recovery and their end could be days or even weeks away.

anyone who knows they are going to spend the rest of what ever they have left of their lives in excruciating agony has the right to die

kill me now, i just got a bad grade on my essay and i dont want to live.....

meek! i wrote a paper on this subject last year. oregon is the only state in america that allows such a thing. many other states want to legalize it as well. many european countries legalized it and many americans have flew to swizerland i believe to get the ax! i believe that it should be legalized because there are proceedures that people have to follow in order to get the okay on death. i think they have to get it okayed by two different doctors, a psychologist, and when they give you the pills, a nurse has to be there to watch you take them. die in a few hours. they also have to request it orally and in papers. it takes a bundle of time but it would take the mystery out of people jumping out of buildings. doctors do not have to do it if they do not want to. the person who wants to die has to have an incurable disease as well. so all in all, i say yes! if people want to die, they will find other ways of doing it. this way, they have time to talk to their families and get closure in life.
