What do you think about eutanasia?
December 16, 2006 3:16pm CST
Euthanasia is an practice who attempts to kill an incurable patient. Some people think that's wrong kill a man, others think that's wrong, even if the patient is suffering with the illness. There's two kinds of Euthanasia: the "passive euthanasia" and the "active euthanasia". The passike kind don't take the patient to death, but with the pass of time, if the patient don't have an medical, pharmacologic or others, the patient is attempted do die. Otherwise, the Active kind takes the patient to the end of life, while In the measure in that is planned and negotiated between the patient and the professional that is going to lead and to term the act. Thanks to everyone who comments here. cheers

IMO, passive euthanasia is cruel, it also includes starvation. When a person is in so much pain that they decide to end it this way, how can someone not intervene with a shot to end it all? I respect people even their choice of when to die, so I am a supporter of euthanasia. When it's my turn, I pray someone will love me enough to allow me to go with my pride and as little pain as possible.

The pros about euthanasia is that in instance if the person is in a state were he could no longer speak and you want to end his/her suffering that would be the pros of euthanasia or mercy killing. I know its wrong to do that but can you feel that the person is suffering also by ending his/her agony. Why prolong life if the person you love is suffering.

I am against that someone terminates his own life. I do think that even pain has a significance in life. I don't want to open my religious baggage, but I do believe that religion gives a sense to my life including pain and illness. Thus even pain has a signficance in life for me.

I am personally pro-euthanasia, if I was suffering and had no type of life and couldn't do anything for myself, surely its my prerogative to end my life? Why make people suffer unnecessarily? Why let their family and friends watch them suffer every day? If an animal was suffering or in great pain then the humane thing would be to put the animal down, so why then can't we do the humane thing to humans? It's not right and euthanasia should be made legal.

it is indeed a difficult question to answer. i would personally prefer to help anyone who is suffering, by offering some kind of relief from pain. there should be some solution to any problem, rather than putting an end to life when we don't have the power to rekindle or create. it does disturb me. i don't support this practice.

i think that it's rude for us to make a person live in suffer and pains ...if it's a painfull illness which can't cure and if the person wants to die without anymore suffer..i think it's right for him to respect his decision:D..and for those who can live more with that illness i think it's ok for them...that's what i think...

Euthanasia is illegal. I think everyone should have advance directives in order such as a Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney. A "do not resuscitate" order for terminally ill persons is a matter of choice. However, to euthanize is setting a dangerous precedent. Who shall be euthanized? What about the very old? How old is too old? Those unable to pay their bills? The mentally challenged? The crippled? The insane? Who decides? Somethings can never be answered! So am against it!

I think its better to do this ,rather than allowing the person to suffer with the disease..because ther s nothin so much painful in this world than tolerating the pains ....i feel for old ppls it can be done ..and for young who havent crossed their noon of their life ,let them be allowed some more...but the attempt is more painful..ofcourse!!... so with the relatives consent it must be done .....so therefore it is better to do this rather than sufferring for the pain..

I agree with it.However under very strict regulation and only if the person that wants it is in a very difficult situation and he hasnt lost his mind..i.e late stages of cancer..etc..etc..so only if he asks it himself.However i strictly repeat with very thorough rules.
