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

    I already have a living will that says orders doctors to pull the plug if I'm ever rendered irreparably brain dead or will not recover from my injury/illness and leave the hospital. So does my wife. I've also made it clear that when I kick the bucket, I don't want any funeral, nothing that costs anyone anything, give my body to science, throw it in a ditch, whatever, I'm dead, what do I care?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think it is the choice that we should all be entitled to make. I have made my wishes known as my partner has. We will follow those wishes as best we can. It is to honor and care for those that you love and care for even in their death.

    I have done all of that as well. My partner medical proxy and my attorney are all the same person so it made it very easy.

    If I made that decision I would not expect my medical proxy to have to make such decision if I were aware. That would have been my call. If they were ready I would have asked what the result would the pain subside. If they could not answer the question I would have been dead now. If the pain were momentary I would have dealt with that..

    If were not capable of saying yes or no. My proxy would have done what they thought best in the situation. She would have put me down..
    There has to be a legal framework of course, it can't exist without one. I put I am not certain.

    Yes the legal frame work. There needs to be some standard of who could be put down. What would be the criteria for the this to be done? Is it pain is it being terminal is a combination of both?

    Well, it can't be pain alone. It has to be that one is certainly going to die.
