I hate the gov't and society in general trying to govern things that dont affect them and then making them laws. I say a person should have the right to end his life whenever he pleases. Its their life and society needs to respect that. A person's life is not like property were the gov't and/or society can just take over by eminent domain and decide over it.

If a person wants to be a vegetable on life support then be my guest they should have that right. But if another person doesnt or just doesnt want to live with a physical pain so great that i cant even understand because i am not him then he should be able to die if he wants to.
also, if a person has explicilty mentioned or witten that she prefers death and not be on life support in case she suffers an accident that puts her in that position then by all means let her die.

I have a few friends who have said to me that they never want to be on life support. For them brain dead is as good as death. I also agree with them is not just giving up but i am just not selfish enough to put my family and friends life and happiness on hold because they are hoping that i will wake up some day and if i am brain dead is very unlikely that i will wake up.

Even suicide, If a person who is not mentally ill. That has been to psychiatric therapy, counseling, on meds and everything. After years of treatment keeps wanting to die then they should be allowed to die. Why, have them suffer because of your beliefs and ideals. They after all YOURS not theirs. It is their life not yours and it doesn't really affect you or at least it certainly doesn't and will not pain you more than it pains them.


Some ppl are murderers and is to be injected with **** which also call killing.........

i'm totally against it. one must not lost hope. if the death is inevitable, then let God decide whether the person already needs to go and wait patiently. it might be extremely painful to witness a love one dying yet is still suffering, but the least we can do is make the best out of the remaining time and cherish our final moments with them.

besides, "thou shall not kill!"

Euthanasia is legal in our country - but only for people who are terminal sick, vegetable people, completely paralyzed people etc. If they are completely sure about not wanting to live anymore, the docter can give them a pill so they can die in peace.
I think that's a good thing. It's the choice of these people, and like someone said before: why should you be the one to decide this? You don't know how it is to be paralyzed! So, yes, I support it, it's your own life and your own decision. Whatever your beliefs and ideals are, you can't make people suffer because of them.

What I am strongly against is suicide. Mostly young people who kill themselves because they see no way to live further. It's selfish and stupid. But that's not how the euthanasia law in our country works: it's very hard to get those pills, and you have to be absolutely sure. I don't really know much about it, but I believe that the docter even has to be with that person when he/she takes the pill, to make sure he/she doesn't give it to someone else. Or something like that.

If you're dying anyway, and you'll only go through a lot of suffering... Then why not? Those people should have the right to decide for themselves. They deserve it.

I think Euthanasia should be allowed, because it is a way off helping people that are going to die end their slow and painful deaths quicker etc.
