Someone very close to you is in pain, Paralyzed, and will die within a month. He/She begs you to give him a poison so he can die. Would you ? Would you really give that close person he/she a poison so they can die? To be Honest I'm not sure I don't think I can do that because I would feel as if I killed the person :( even though they were going to die anyway I don't know if I can go on with my life thinking maybe I should of let them die the way it intended to happen. :( I don't I might go crazy and poison myself. I'll think I go to hell for killing that person I was close to so I would do it while I cry. Thinking I'm going to go t hell. I don't know I'll be so Lost and caught up in so many problems I don't know. What About You?

This is a tough question. If I had a loved one who was in constant pain, I personally would help ease that pain. I would help. You dont want to see them hurting. I would want someone to help me.

Well you started a good discussion here! Funnily enough I was only thinking about this sort of thing the other day, but it was more in regards to myself and how if I found out I was terminally ill I would try and get hold of something to finish me off quickly instead of having my family torn apart watching me suffer. To answer your questions I would help them. This answer is totally my feelings of the situation and what I would do if I was ever in that situation. I would not feel that I had killed them, if they were suffering and in pain and were dying anyway then I would help ease their suffering. At the end of the day when our pets are in the same position we get them euthanised to end their pain and suffering and although we dont like too we do it because they are in pain. For me, I dont see the difference between doing it for an animal we love and doing for a human we love even more. Dont get me wrong, it would be hard, I remember having my dog put to sleep and that was awful but she was suffering and deserved to be pain free.

No, because that would be murder and I would be bound for Hell. I would instead see to it that my loved one had enough pain medication to keep him/her comfortable until the end.

I would really not take a decision to kill any person even if they are my enemy because its the person who is my enemy not their soul! I wont kill any person even if they are sick or being in pain or anything instead i will sit and pray with tears before GOD to help them or give rest to their souls .Im not kidding i will do it for sure.. when my grandma was put up in that situation i did so.. she is now in GOD'S place.. We dont have any authority to kill anybody
