*sudden pangs of guilt*
Speaking of last minute crams - i should be writing my 3000 word essay due on fri, not debating social issues on bubhub :P

I don't think that extends to using our intelligence to euthanise a person which is what someone threw at me after that comment.
This means any nutter can set up an "initiative" and can knock on people door to get a signature from people. This is what's happened in this case. Now someone trying to force others (doctors) to kill people even though it goes against everything they stand for.
How can they try to force doctors (who swear the hippocratic oath) to end someone's life who is physically in tip top shape??? These people do not need to be euthanized, they need to see a psychologist and try to improve the quality of their life instead!
Imagine you 70yo husband saying one day "Hun, I am going to the doctor to get euthanized, dont count on dinner for me". Ofcourse this is overexagerated, but it would be a very selfish thing to do when you're in a long marriage and do not think about the other persons feelings.
Even so, ff someone wants to kill themselves at the age of 70, what's stopping them from taking a handful of pills?
Yes I am for euthanasia of terminally ill patients who are suffering from chronic pain each and every day with no hope of things improving and knowing it will only get worse. What a lovely thing to look forward to
For perfectly healthy over 70yo people, I say a big fat no. It is selfish towards your loved ones to just decide "you're over it" and get yourself knocked over legally, without providing any proper reason.
Absolutely agree! Most family members left behind would want their loved one's death to be as painless as possible!!
