HI FRIENDS Today I would like to discuss very very serious topic with you and i have strong and valid reason for that. One of my friend's father is parallised since 2003 that is near about 8yrs,I dont want to take his name here however he is 62yrs and his wife is 56yrs they both are old age and she is housewife, but now she is not stayig with husband. My friend, she got married, her younger sister is working in mumbai in one reputed hospital as staff nurse and the youngest sister is working in pune, she is doctor(phisiotheropist)working with well known hospital.This doctor is staying in pune with her mom..........and the patient is at one of their relative's home.........only my friends she goes there to visit her father once in a month as she is married she cannot stay with father for long time...........the person cannot do anything without help.........he is in bad condition............now he is getting some other deseases too....few days back when I visited him he was crying and asking me info about euthanasia I was strike first however when I listen to his whole story even my tears rolled out............... What I think in such type of cases, euthanasia is like salvation for the person however indian government doesn't allow for this.........I dont what is the openion of rest of the world for this..........however Indian gov thinks this is a support to suicide....... I want to know your openion, what should that person do if he want to die becouse there is nobody to take care of him.....only sending money every month by moneyorder is not everything for such type of patients, they need love,sympathy, care and cure..........this is my request to you pls comment must if you know something about such type cases.I know only one case of mrs aruna shanboug................ thank you have a great day!!!!

i'm all for euthanasia! i know people say the life is god's life, and you'll go to hell and all this, and the persons soul will be damned etc etc etc, but see the way i see it? its your life, if you want to end your own life, it should be allowed! i moved into an apartment recently and i found out that the man who lived there before me had hung himself, and he was found hanging from a tree near where the apartment is.. he was only 50 years old, and judging by his post, and a calender that was left in the house, seemed to have a pretty good social life, so i couldn't understand what would possess him to do that. he'd also left a lot of gas in the meter!! .. i then flicked back through his calender and found out he had had numerous appointments at a hospital, that specalises in cancer and tumors, and he had also had numerous M.R.I scans.. so he was clearly dying.. and took matters into his own hands! i say fair play to him!! he obviously didnt ever want to become a burden to anyone in his life, and played things HIS way! therefore, i am completely for euthanasia! because people who aren't able to end their own lives, and want a hand from someone who loves them, should be allowed!

Killing is bad according to our universal ethics. But, we have to further study the real issue here. There are many ways and forms of killings and all of them are quite different from each other. I know how painful it is to lost someone you really loved but having them suffer much that can hardly be endure anymore is also killing. I know how we value life but if this life we are going to value is not that realistic. Then, we better have a second thought. It's not easy for that someone in pain to hold on a little bit longer if he can't really make it. For us who are still alive and kicking, we find it so facile to tell them fight for it. But, we don't know how it really feels when in your in the aching bed. So for me, it still depends if the situation call for it; I'll have the Euthanasia - if it's the only last chance of giving our love ones the rest they need.

This is an ethical issues that debates all over again from the birth of euthanasia up to this day. I'll give an opinion to this topic. Their is lot of faces in every country about euthanasia why because their is always an ethical issues upon executing this one specially in the Christian country. Why I consider religion in this issue because it is where mostly our morality defines. The other is the human law we must consider this upon executing the euthanasia. It is where we must look also because it is where we defines that rights of individual. According to lawyer which I interview about this issue, He the family has the full rights of the patient because the patient is in the coma and can not make decision to itself. The whole family must sign a weaver that they agree in executing euthanasia so that euthanasia will be in legal way.

I am for euthanasia;there are cases of people with terrible sufferings for whom every moment of their life is full of pain,so I'm sure they can't enjoy life anymore and they should be given the right to decide on their own lives in these dramatic conditions.
