Agree with PP.. It happens more than most realise, it's just not talked about or brought up.. I genuinely hope it become legal..

I genuinely don't understand why anyone would be against it. If a 40 year old woman who is assessed as being able to make the decision and has terminal ovarian cancer - why would anyone take the option of a painless death on her terms from her? Yes there are grey areas, but life is grey. It's her body and no one else's. Why anyone would prefer she die two months down the track, in agony, having lost all control of her body is beyond me?

I was more trying to understand your objection to euthanasia. Why don't you agree with it?

Because I just don't . I think that society is gearing more and more to killing as a way of dealing with problems . I believe in God and he states in the 10 commandments that thou shalt not kill. So I wouldn't kill any human being for any reason. It's obviously a lot more complicated than that and I understand that I don't have a popular view but it's my opinion.

Terry Pratchett did an excellent documentary on Euthanasia & went to countries where they could do it & met people who were terminally ill or disabled where they'd only deteriorate. People who were travelling to these countries because they had decided to end their lives.
It was an incredibly sad, yet moving & interesting documentary.
It ends with you bearing witness to one of these people going to the 'house' with his wife to end his life.
He had to take the medication himself I believe, no Dr administrated anything.
In answer to the op question. Yes, although I know it's a very grey area, I agree with it.

Yes. I am probably not in the right mindframe to get into it too much but I believe that noone should have to suffer a slow/painful death.
I watched my grandfather slowly die from dementia. In the end he was just an empty skeleton. His mind/soul/being was gone and it was just a body left.
I KNOW if he had a choice he would not choose to go in that way.
And for those of us left behind it is so hard to remember only the 'good times' - when he was vibrant. When he was full of life, joy, love, laughter.
Sorry for the ramble.

A lethal injection is very straightforward and easily accessed; it just has to be potassium. But there's no way in hell I am ever giving anyone such an injection.
