Put it this way, I think be both agree it would be ridiculous to enforce euthanasia on someone who did not want it, yes? Well, I think it's equally ridiculous to enforce the opposite. Again, it's about choice, a choice that nobody should be allowed to make for someone else.

The only exception, IMO, is when the person is proven to be mentally unstable. I don't mean just depressed - I think most people with a terminal condition or who are facing all the problems associated with old age would suffer some sort of depression... I guess I mean something more "severe" than standard depression. The kind of severe depression that leads to suicide, for example. Those people, IMO, are not in the right frame of mind to really be choosing whether life is worth living or not.
For people who are going to die soon enough anyway, thanks to terminal conditions (cancer, for example), who are just waiting out their days, etc... they deserve to be able to say, "You know what? If a dog is living in pain and its quality of life is rubbish, we all say it's cruel NOT to put it down... so now I think that time has come for ME."

My friend's mum went to jail for helping her mum die. She was 70, had cancer everywhere - a massive tumour on her brain, was in so much pain. Was originally diagnosed with leukemia at 27 and had been battling cancer since then in one way or the other. Had a hysterectomy, bone marrow transplant, lost her bowel, was blind from the tumor pressing on her optic nerve... She spent more than half her life in and out of hospital, missing her kid's lives because she was too ill to go to soccer on saturday, couldn't go to the shops as it was compromising to her immune system. She asked her daughter to help her die and she did. She She even wrote and signed a letter stating she'd asked her daughter to help her end her life, but she was charged with murder nonetheless.
And yet, I don't see that as murder? I'd do the same if my mum asked me in a similar circumstance to that.
