A 75-year-old man has been suffering from cancer for two years.His son hopes that the doctor will discontinue treatment and let his father die a peaceful death.Are you for or against practicing mercy killing on the old man?

I do believe in mercy killing if that is what the person wants. Not if the child or grandchild wants. I think someone needs to be of sound frame of mind to choose fi they want mercy killing or not.

Personally I agree with euthanasia. I've heard of numerous people suffering extreme pains on their dying bed while it is a great anguish for the family to witness his suffering.

it is okay if you will stop the medicines and all the tests and wait for the time. but he has to die the natural way but not like pulling the plug that makes him breath since he is still alive of some sort. im totally against mercy killing.
