    I do agree. I do as many others think there needs to be laws that protect your rights.

    Not likely. I have a better chance of flapping my arms and flying to the moon.

    Do you think that Euthanasia should be legal? Do you think that it should be there if you need it?
    Absolutely. However, I think it must be a medical decision, not an emotional decision. I do not think Doctors should be forced to take the life of healthy people. I think euthanasia should be a medical practice predicated on medical criteria. I think it should be used only for individuals in tremendous amounts of pain or for individuals with terminal diseases.
    There is nothing more dangerous to the liberty of Man than a Government or a Religion seizing upon the strings of an overdeveloped herd instinct amongst the people.

    This is certainly true. i would not want doctors offing people if they have a bit of depression over the lost of a pet or a mate. That would be horrible. Yes terminal and the pain would have to be something that is not going away.

    Re: Euthanasia: Do you support it or against it?

    Because of time zones I have to post when I can so if this has been covered im sorry.Re Pain.

    My Dad died a couple of years back at 93yrs of age.

    His mind at the time was very sharp, his body was just past its "sell by date".

    He had no more pain than usual, he just was tired of fighting old age, he was frightened and upset about the burden he was becoming on my Mum and me and my brothers

    He told me on my last visit whilst he was at home (he had wet himself the night before) that he had had enough and he did not want to leave us with memories of his further decline.

    The next day when my Mum was in the garden he had a fall down the stairs, he had not manage to get out of bed without assistance for a week before this.

    He was taken to hospital, when I got there he opened his eyes as the Doctor was asking me some booking in questions and stated "steve tell them I just want to die" he then made a few jokes and went back to sleep.

    I went home return with his living will requesting no medical intervention.

    He died next day.

    My Mum who is 93yrs has a stash of pills.

    I think it's fine for other people, but I wouldn't go that route for myself.

    That's horrible that he had to throw himself down the stairs. There should be a system in place so that people have more dignified options. I'm sorry for your loss.

    But what's awesome is that he went out telling jokes.

    That's how I want to go.

    And that's the thing. It should be a personal choice.
