    If the doctors cannot cure something, and there's no way the condition will go away on its own, dragging out the inevitable is heartless.
    Couldn't agree more. They often stop giving the person food and water to end it faster. Its ok for them to die of thirst but not to have some fast pain free drugs - that's sick!

    I am for it. But do agree that there needs to be guidelines and of sound mind.

    It's not legal because the government makes a lot of money out of the medications needed to keep the suffering alive to suffer for a little bit longer.

    Sadly, that's the way of it. I wish it were different so that our loved ones, and ourselves, could live with the knowledge that they are able to die with dignity at their own whim.

    For

    I watched my grandmother fade over several years. Mentally she'd gone years ago, physically it was a sad horrible decline. She'dve been mortified if she'd known what her last few years would be like.

    My exh grandfather was able to choose the time of his death as he was in Holland. He had a terminal brain tumor and organized that the day he could no longer toilet himself he would choose to die. He chose a day that was nothing, not a birthday or anniversary, the Dr visited the night before and Opa didn't wake the next morning. It was dignified and at a time of his own choosing.

    I am for euthanasia - it's something I have believed in for a lot of years. I believe it's your body and your right to choose.
