    Yes. God forbid I or anyone close to me should ever be find ourselves in such a situation, but should it happen, the decision has already been made. I do not want to exist when I am no longer able to enjoy life or be a burden to anyone else.
    That being said, I would not expect anyone to administer a lethal injection or concoction to bring about my death, for I could not be that person to do it to another.
    I pray that a solution is around the corner and I don't have to fly to Switzerland, or wherever it is one must go for euthanasia.

    Having read through some of the comments, I see that most people feel that the responsibility falls on the doctor. I'm not sure which doctor or where, I absolutely agree for this to be legal there has to be psychiatric evaluation involving a panel of medical professionals but I don't necessarily believe a doctor needs to be the one to terminate life. I reckon there would be few medical professionals willing to put their hands up to do that. I'm an RN and no way could I do it. I believe in it, and believe it's a persons right to access it, but couldn't bring myself to be the one delivering that service. I also don't feel that the hospital environment is a place for it. End of life decisions and care are difficult enough in existing situations.

    As above . Could you kill someone? It's all well and good to discuss it on a forum , another to actually do it.

    Doctors do it all the time. This is what I find laughable about this argument and debate. My grandmother was allowed to die. My fathers closest friend had Alzheimer's and pneumonia and the doctor administered a lethal dose of pain killer in the end.

    It does happen. But we don't call it euthanasia and openly deal with what we are doing.

    I have no control over what other people do. I was asked if I would do it . The answer is no.

    I see it more and bringing forward an inevitable death. I see it as saving a loved one from suffering through a horrendously painful death.

    I'm saying this from the point of view I only support euthanasia for terminally ill people where it has been confirmed by more than 1 doctor that said person is no chance of ever recovering and said person has had counselling and signs forms to say they have made the decision via free will and that no one could sue the carers for said euthanasia

    I thought her question wasn't aimed at you personally.
