    However, euthanasia should be illegal. For all the justifications that can be applied, it is still the willful ending of human life. The capacity of the individual to make a measured choice about his or her own life is suspect at best, but the capacity of individuals to make that choice regarding the lives of others is nonexistent. Society is better served when the law seeks to preserve life rather than end it.
    There is an interesting movie that can give one pause and a deeper look into what the process can be like. It's called The Barbarian Invasions. It shows a process in a life that well could be. It is a kind way to pass out of this life. Dignity.

    The answer is yes, as long as the family members are behind it, or the person involved is of sound mind. Under no circumstances should the decision be left to government.

    If you found yourself terminally ill and there was discomfort and the expenses were rising. The care and visitation is getting tough on the family.

    Do you think that Euthanasia should be legal? Do you think that it should be there if you need it?
    If you found yourself with a serious medical condition which would jeprodise your life if you carried your pregnancey to term, would you want the ability to abort?

    30+ years later we have elective abortion for any or no reason. I hope you can apreciate my hesitence in suporting any such 'right to die' law.

Society is better served when the law seeks to preserve life rather than end it.
    Good points..
    This is why I opted for "uncertain".
    But the government is wrong for "going after" JK..
    There must be something between legal and illegal...

    The cult of the dead is the beginnings of civilization.

    I believe in physician assisted euthanasia. You own your body, you are not property of the state.

    No i don't wonder why really. I think we just drift off into the night and are gone. People hold us here by memory and someday that too will fade into sweet oblivion. I am not an afterlife kind of person. I get the idea that when we are dead we are dead.

    A lot of people are terrified of that prospect and I really don't know why. It kind of sounds nice.
