I think it should be allowed
Right. My grandfather suffered in pain for a few years, and then excruciating months before the nurse who was looking after him "accidentally overdosed him on morphine" after everyone in his family, children and grandchildren said goodbye to him.
He had been given 6 months to live 20 years previous to that and lasted a very long time after with constant 6 months to live and life extending surgeries.
I agree it is after all your life and you should be able to end it when you wish. You can sell your organs or have limbs removed. And if I burn in hell for doing it it is still my problem. I seen a man once who lost all his limbs because of a bacterial meningitis infection that went septic. He could only communicate with a computer. He said he had lesions all over his body that will not heal he has had them for years. The pain he felt really came out in his words it made me cry reading what he wrote. Funny it's always the guy who is not having your problem that is always making the decisions for you. Under Pres Obah's plan they are going to let old people die because it's not cost effective to keep them alive. So I bet suicide in the states may become the new "health" plan lol We're all too sick..

Anything that people do in there personal lives can be seen from both sides.......
I am an ENTJ, so I believe that the individual is the Master of his (or her) destiny.....So I support it in the case of a person of sound mind that makes a decision....
The rest of it......Others trying to 'figure out' what someone 'would have wanted'.......This is much less clear cut
I see no reason why it shouldn’t be allowed if it’s someone’s wish.
Most people want euthanasia when they are in severe pain.
If the pain can be controlled that wish also goes away.
With the drugs we have today and resources we are able to do with out euthanasia.
The choice of suicide, should be available. Euthanasia of course, should only be a case in conditions in which the individual is incapable of taking their own life.
First case is to alleviate pain. Any type of pain. But if that is found to be impossible, then due consideration should go towards assisted/automatic suicide.
I'm on the fence about it, In a perfect world (well not perfect but simpler) when ever people were in horrible pain and they wanted to be killed they would be allowed to but the thing to remember is that it's much more complicated then that.
You have to consider how families and friends may be affected.
Not only that but whos to decide who has to pull the plug?
Sorry if someone already made this point but I'm just too lazy to read this thread right now.
