Oi! Topic - not poster....
This is an extremely emotional topic for ALL involved. I imagine hearts are aching on both sides.
Debate the topic - not the poster please.
I remember seeing this on the news ABC or SBS. I found it so confronting and so sad, but it cemented my belief that we should have the right to choose.
I don't for one instance believe this would be an easy decision to make, in fact I think it would be horrific, but I believe in the choice.
I'm asking questions to get my head around people's reasons on both sides. I need to do that before I can sit on one side of the fence without a doubt. I can't argue something when I'm not clear on questions that pop in my head. Not trying to debate or sound argumentative, but if you collectively have no doubts I'd like to know how you reason with those questions so that maybe I can see it clearer as well.
for - in very strict circumstances.
While I understand the concept of euthanasia, I can't say im for it.
As a christian I dont believe that anyone should take a life, even though its their own.
I watched my nanna go through a painful end to her life, and while I would have done anything to take her pain away, i dont think I could have let her take her own life.
I do understand but I dont think I could agree with it being legslised here

Lily - I askd I question re one of your points a few posts back.
Do you see a comparison? re - prioritising individuals beliefs and wishes.
as a 17 year old girl, watching my mother battle cancer for 2 years has not 'bettered' me in any way.
similarly when my 98 year old grandmother begged me to help her die in 2010 has not made me 'stronger' in any way.
for those of us also who do not believe in heaven (and a very large percentage of the world's population don't) why should their choice be taken away on religious grounds?
for me it all comes down to one word and one word only...
I am for it, but I would like to think that it would only be used for those in palliative care with zero quality of life or the final stages of dementia.
