Euthanasia (Mercy Killing). are you for or against it?

My question is small and simple : Would you support Euthanasia? And why? Now i shall give my opinion. I think life is the most beautiful thing that can happen to anyone of us. Its a Gift. And giving someother person the right to determine whether that gift should be taken away from you or not is too tough on that other person. If someone has previously signed a statement saying that "please kill me off if i am terminally ill with no chances of survival", then i guess Euthanasia is an option. Now, people who do not know the concept of Euthanasia : It refers to the practice of ending a life(not your own,somebody else's) in apainless manner.It is actually legal in some countries where as some countries totally forbid it.Some people think Euthanasia is equivalent to murder whereas some people think its mercy. If a patients os really ill and there are nil chances of survival and if the patient has been suffering from immense pain coz of this disease,then a doctor can decide to terminate this patient by somelethal poison or so, just so that their suffering can be ended. People think that life can be taken by only God and we humans have no right,whatsoever to decide on when and how to take another person's life. Now please give me your views...

I agree to your views though its painful in the sense that the button of life is switched off at the person's will but i think its practical to save from continuos pain a person endures with no hope of recovery.Its also very hard on all the people around to see their near and dear one alive just for the sake of being alive.
