I remember this topic. It was my thesis subject way back in college. "Euthanasia" or popularly known as mercy killing that means intentionally ending one's life to relieve from pain and suffering. If you were asked by the doctors, are you willing to intentionally end the life of your love ones to end up his/her suffering? Is it morally right? Your thoughts, please.

To me it is simple, If some one is suffering, then yes morally right. I know I would not want my last days in so much pain.

Maybe, before we reach that point in life, we must inform our family members what we want

In my own opinion, I'm not against it to lessen the pain and hardship of my family, l wil ask the same for me when in that situation.

Yeah it will works. But leaving to the family members the decision to end up the life is a tough one

@cttolledo yeah its really a tough one and its one of the hardest thing to do. During those times when people are dying in homes the relatives are actually crying not with pain but praying for the soul, in my place we call it dung-aw.

I am not ok with it. I would be ok with requesting mercy killing for me. But requesting it for my loved ones - that would be a murder. Murder for money murder to save money murder to save headache, whatever. If my father wanted it, he needs to define what would be the stage in his life he wants the machine switched off. I have seen comatose people returning and living normal lives. So I would not be able to do that.

You misunderstood me dear @vandana7 , I meant for me I don't want my family members or near and dear want to suffer that's why I would opt for Euthanasia! Hope now it is clear! Any way what right do i have on other's life may it be my family members or any one to take such a drastic decision?

oops that was a blunder I must admit dear @vandana7 ! Having read it once again I could get it that it was about the people whom we love and not for ourselves! Thanks for bringing the mistake into my notice....now shall I change my old comments?

The right to end your life should be your decision and no one else"s.
