So I know this will be controversial but I'm bringing up euthanasia after a post from another thread about a hubbers grandmother who suffered horribly before she died and it got me thinking that this is a topic that has somewhat lost traction, it doesn't seem to be in the media anymore.
So yes or no? Why? Please try and be respectful with your opinions.
For me I believe it should be legal, just like people's immediate family / power of attorney are able to decide whether life support machines are turned off in certain circumstances, why then can't a terminally ill person who is suffering chose the same for themselves? So they can pass peacefully surrounded by loved ones in a calm and safe place.

Euthanasia - Yes or No?

Yes, for the exact reason you just said.

Yes yes yes
My mother passed after a short but agonising cancer diagnosis. That she was made to suffer because of other people's beliefs makes me sick. She should have the opportunity to surround herself with loved ones and end things the way she saw fit. Also we deserved that. Watching your mother die a long slow painful death is torture and not something children should have to witness.
I detest that religion comes into creating laws and legislation.

Yes. Absolutely. I don't really have my mind around the potential issues and legal ramifications, but yes.
I find the 'playing God' argument to be a weird one, to be honest. I mean, can't any medical intervention be described that way?
You don't often hear people saying 'oh, treating cancer with chemo and radiation is just playing God'. It's always confused me.
