i really am very disturbed by this topic which is constantly debated among philosophers and moralists. would you rather let a person live a life with machines' help or would you choose to let him die naturally. would u choose the QUALITY OF LIFE principle over THE SANCTITY OF LIFE.

There has been a great deal of debate on this subject lately and court cases too. In all honesty I feel that if I were in such a state that I felt I didn't want to continue living, and I was mentally capable of making such a decision, I would rather end it all than see my family and friends suffering along with me. If it was a member of my family, and they asked me to help them to end their suffering, I would have to say that I feel then they have the right to chose. There are so many views on this subject, however, that I very much doubt there will ever be a right or wrong response here
