Euthanasia (from Greek: e??a?as?a -e?, eu, "good", ?a?at??, thanatos, death) is the practice of terminating the life of a person or an animal because they are perceived as living an intolerable life, in a painless or minimally painful way either by lethal injection, drug overdose, or by the withdrawal of life support. Euthanasia is a controversial issue because of conflicting religious and humanist views. Contents

Sometimes it's really better to resort to euthanasia. Like when the only things that keep your loved one alive are the machines. It is more painful to see someone you love so helpless. And though they can't talk, you know it is very hard for them. So it's better to do a mercy killing and let your loved one rest finally. Well, that's just my opinion.

I am for it. I think it should be a personal choice of the ill person. It's widely practiced in animals, but I think it should be a personal choice of an individual. Just like birthcontrol. Or abortions. It should be a personal choice.

Euthanasia is a good thing.Final, it allows old people (and young) to die in peace. But i still think there should be a process of like2 mins before so people can get a choice at the last minute
