    Lots of people try to kill themselves with prescription drugs and don't die. Also, starvation and dehydration are really horrible ways to die. Not quick.

    I'm surprised that you of all people came up with no. Can you explain your position to me? I'm genuinely curious.

    Really don't care. There are no guarantees in life except you will eventually die.

    I'm glad I have the means, if I should want it, to do what I need to when the time comes.
    You have to be lucid mentally to even ask for euthanasia, if someone has actually mentally deteriorated in such a manner that they no longer are able to make an informed and consistent choice for euthanasia, that would end the possibility of euthanasia for them. People who suffer from more than mild Alzheimer for example cannot undergo euthanasia, the same goes for people whose mental disease makes them unfit to make informed choices are not able to undergo euthanasia.

    The overwhelming amount of euthanasia requests and cases in which euthanasia has been applied are those who suffer from physical diseases/conditions.

    Because I think it devalues human life to be able to throw it away. One cannot stop another from killing themselves if they are so motivated, but nobody should be forced to help them do it.

    You can avoid a painful horrible death with the administration of a drug cocktail by a medical professional who knows what he or she is doing.

    There are some doctors (Dr. Kevorkian for example) who would willingly put people out of their misery. Watching someone suffer like that is horrible.

    I could care less about what you think of my morality. I do not require suffering you arrogant wind bag--nature does.
