Do you guys think "Euthanasia" should be legal?

I don't agree.

I like your topics name. I know I am against it, mostly because of tradition... Life shouldn't be thrown away so easily as soon as things get bad. If someone doesn't believe in anything, then it's easier to do that, I guess.

Edit:
There was a case in England where there was a woman who was paralyzed and wanted to die. In this case it was her choice, so it's up to her.

Another case was a vegetable woman in the US where her uncaring husband wanted the life sustainers to be shut down. Her parents where against it, but the husband won in court, claiming the woman would have preferred death. In this case I am against it, cause I know in her shoes I wouldn't want to die.

I really hate being neutral, but it's seriously all circumstancial to me. And given the fact that humans (in general) change their minds every five seconds, that makes it even worse of a decision to have to make.

The only thing I can say for certain is that I would appreciate never being in the position to have to make such a decision.

I did this short speech last year on this topic. I, personally, am for euthanasia. But it's almost midnight and I have school tomorrow so I'm not really in the right frame of mind for stating my reasons. Maybe tomorrow if I have the time.

It all depends on the situation for me,
for terminal patiens, why not; if the person in question is for example experiencing horrible agonizing pain the whole time and is going to die anyway, why not? Or would you like for them to suffer a liiiittle bit longer just because euthanasia is murder or whatever, hah, bull.. :P
or if someone suffers from I don't know, braindamage or something, and they turn into a plant, god why not?
but for me, it still depends

Ive looked into this thing and to be honest i think "Euthenasia" should be allowed, ofcourse monitored by the goverment.
Its the same thing as pulling the plug on a somebody whos more like a vegitable than a person,QUALITY OF LIFE is something for every person themselves to decide, and even if we get euthanasia legalised, is it gonna push you to take your own life? NO!
And also if you can read about this right now then you are NOT a candidate for euthenasia because you are able to do something thus your not a vegetable.

nope remember the more power you give away to goverments, or other people the less freedom you have, and if you take a hard look around you, it's already happening.

i personally am very for it...the less people alive, the better in my eyes. especially since those that want to be killed off don't want to live, or they are unable to live a "quality" life. i would never wanted to live in a wheelchair, stuck having others do my everything. its one thing to be unable to walk, its another entirely to be unable to be self-sufficient. while we are at it, lets just off everyone who isn't able to survive on their own, or with minimal help, unless they are a child. think of the amount of money we would get back from health care, trying to cure retardation, foundations and supplies and shit for these people.

and don't get me wrong, it isn't that i don't care about these people, my great grandma and my grandma are both afflicted with Alzheimer's and i love them very much...but they are an economic drain.

in some cases the right to choose to be taken off of neutrients and life support systems should be up to the patient because if they believe there is no chance for them to recover and all they are doing is causing stress and eating up the families funds they should have the right to choose if they want to die or not because it is their body it is their lives and if they want to end it then they should have the right to do it (for a justified reason not really suicidle) but if the person is incompasitated(sp) then the family should not have the right because for all they know the person could wake up any day and the patient may want to live. also goes with the case of brain trama(sp). if they can not think straight they should also not be able to decide if they want to die because of lacking the ability to think straight. same case for my malma. she had a stroke and she wanted to be put down but since it had effected her brain i would have never given her the choice to do so or not. now she stutters her sentences sometimes and shes forgetfull but she can almost walk by herself again and she can now feed herself.

and you honestly think she has enjoyed having to deal with that? she wanted to die...shouldn't it be her choice what she does with her body?

oh wait, it's gods choice isn't it? my bad.

i like what you said Haddon.
if i had an accident that would leave me paralized/brain damage/retarted to be honest i would rather died in the incident, i just can bared to live that way.
but i do care for other people with problems though

I guess you could say I'm for it... I know I wouldn't wanna be 90 unable to move laying in a bed on an artifical respirator... but then again I don't think people that are fine but sick of life to be able to go to the doctor and say he buddy kill me... But I recomend the movie Soylent Green... or Logans Run (not sure about that one) Where people reach certain ages and are killed off.

to throw away life is just wrong, but i know that if i were 90% unable to do anything or brain dead for a very long period of time or a finacl burdn to my family then yes i would want to die. i would hate to give up even the smallest glimmer of hope on life.
