If someone brings god into a debate, other's have the right to rebut it just as you can rebut an argument by bringing god into it. You can't play god as your "no one can argue with me because this is my personal god" if you're stating that because of YOUR belief in god, euthanasia should be illegal for everyone.

And yeah, while i'm not going to jump into the fray - you're on a very very ugly-slippery slope there regarding ivf et al. :-/
I can't imagine most people would go for it. But for some, it may be a good option.
If they're developing alzheimers or MS, or if they have chronic pain issues (that aren't terminal).
Honestly, i'd probably prefer euthenasia to a nursing home once i'm no longer able to take proper care of myself. and i'd rather be able to hold my families hands, and tell them i love them, than sneaking away in the night without telling them because i don't want them to get in trouble for it.
I don't know why the numbers are increasing though. i assume its because initially people didn't really know the laws, whether it was what they wanted etc. Most new things take a few years to reach their peak. And all things considered, the numbers still aren't outrageously high. But obviously they need to ensure that the protocols are followed closely, and consider actions when they're not (9 in 3K is quite a high rate of not following protocol - but i'd be interested to know how they weren't following protocol).

I don't get it. Discussing someones belief in God is not going to get to the core of the issue. I would have rathered discussed that thats all. Having cases reported as my above post is interesting. How would it affect ones legal rights if something goes wrong, will more dr's get sued, how will much will it cost us, things like that.

I feel religion is a big part of why euthanasia is not legal....

And yes I realised I was telling people what to discuss and I can't do that. But I was just trying to push the conversation forward and past that so it doesn't become a slinging match. I don't want to be defending God or religion and that's where these discussions end up. I'd prefer to discuss it deeper and further then on this surface level of religion, its a social issue that deserves more investigating.
Thanks Gandalf for that post.
