    How awful. Did they ask to die sooner?

    Right at the begining the request was made to debate the issue and not attack the person. Geez, how hard is that!? People ARE entitled to their opinion in a debate thread. Saying that someone's ideas are stupid do not belong in a debate!

    Grrr

    Anyway, I am for it under strict controls etc. It's one of those things where the principal is a wonderful idea, but it does make me nervous that the power could be abused. I mean, communism in theory is a delightful idea but the practise is a different story! So yeah, I'm pro euthanasia but would want it with very strict guidlines and rules to eliminate abuse of power.

    It breaks my heart seeing how much pain some of these people are in. I never would of been able to say a 100% yes until now working in an aged care facility.

    I haven't read the whole thread but just wanted to 110% agree with this. It wasn't until I did uni placement recently in a high needs aged care facility that I realised how desperately unfair it is that euthanasia is not legal.

    And as for this 'fine line'... well there are procedures in place for agreeing on a 'do not resuscitate' order, so I imagine the same kind of thing could be used for this.

    I have not yet had a chance to read any of the replies, but my answer is absolutely 100% FOR.
    I have watched 3 of my grandparents suffer through hell on earth in their final stages of Cancer and Dementia.. the disease is pure evil.

    What an awful thing to ask me

    They died at home being cared for by family surrounded by love. My step grandmother is in a nursing home which is what she chose to do before her dementia was too advanced she also chose to have a dnr order put in place.

    Many, many terminally ill cancer patients at the end of their illness ask to die, so I think that is what lambjam was getting at.

    At the end of the day, I don't think anyone should be forced to do what they don't want to do, I also don't think anyone should be able to choose or force someone to stay alive and suffer if that person don't want to stay alive and suffer. My body, my choice.
