    Default Euthanasia - For OR Against.

    *Inspired by Elijahsmum's thread... waiting for influx of spin offs - I thought I'd get in first :P*



    DO you support the right to Euthanasia.

    or

    Are you AGAINST the right to Euthanasia.

    Why??



    Debate the ISSUE - not the person....

    For. If a person wants to end their pain and suffering, why not?

    I am for it. I think we should be able to choose a dignified death if we are terminally ill. Obviously with counselling etc prior.

    For. Having watched my Grandmother die of dementia I am definitely for. She didn't even recognise her own daughters. She was a breathing skeleton for the last 9 or so months.

    Very much for! Why can't we have the choice to end suffering if we feel the need to do so!

    Animals are eusthanised for pain, it's cruel to keep them alive.

    I fail to understand why I can end the suffering of any pet I have .. yet can not end the life of someone who is clearly ill and in incredible pain.

    I think you should be able to write a document (while in sound mind etc) and document what you want to happen in certain situations in your life. If I am in a car accident, and can not be revived - do I want the machines turned off or not ... if I am diagnosed with cancer and reach a point where I verbally (or other ways?) express that I wish to end my life, I should be legally allowed to do it.

    It breaks my heart that people who WANT to end their lives in a dignified way are refused the right to do it.

    It should be like organ donation - discussed with loved ones with a written record of your wishes when you are of sound mind, then your wishes followed at the crucial moment.

    In theory I vote yes, I saw my grandmother die a painful death, she had motor neurone disease, she was only 65 when she died, in 3 years she went from a happy, active woman to someone bed ridden and on life support.

    On the other hand I can imagine that it would be used inappropriately.

    It's a tough one and I honestly can't see it being legalised in my life time.
