(Uh oh)

A person has a right to live. In my mind, they then also have a right to end their life, if they so wish. If they are unable to do so, but still wish to do so, then a doctor should be on hand to put them out of their misery. Better than a distraught daughter/husband/wife/son/friend doing it themselves.

I myself would choose to be euthanized if I were to fall into a vegetative state. Also, I believe every human has the right to decide when to end his life. My grandmother was euthanized because she had lymph cancer and did not want to continue chemo therapy. It was a painless death, and all her children were there with her in her last moments.

I too think a person should be able to choose whether they end their life, providing it is medically proven they are noncurable, and sane. It would then be taken out in a controlled atmosphere with drugs.

Oh, and in the future snake, try to start threads with an opinion of your own :)

Euthanasia goes aganist a primal instinct to survive as long as possible. I don't care if other people do it. The person to be killed needs give written consent before doing it. If that person falls into a vegetative state and never stated wether he/she wanted to be killed then it should be assumed that the person wants to live. If the person cannot speak or send their intentions then how do you know wether they want to live or die? I would never have it done. I got one life and I want to live it as long as possible.

What's the point in living, if you can't feel alive?

Though I agree. There must be a written consent, witnessed by, I'd say, a doctor and one other person. And it would be optional, of course.

I'm okay with it. If a person really wants to do it, they should be allowed to off themselves, assisted by a doctor of course.

If suicide is legal, so should be euthanasia.

Thnx for sharing your opinions with me,guyz. Sry for not starting the thread with my own opinion.Well,if you ask me,euthanasia should be done when a person is terminally ill and doctors know that there will be agony.And,O.K.,it should be a written conscent,and every person should make that choice when they turn 18.And,frankly,I don't agree with "We should live as long as possible",but,then again,everyone has a right to their own opinion,right? But,personally,I'm more of a "What's the point of living if you can't feel alive" kinda guy...

Depends on what is wrong with them. I would never really use that option since I trust that science and doctors would do their best to try to save me. I wouldn't really mind losing some of my limbs or organs because I could get a transplant or robotic ones (Sure it would be werid but I would still be alive and about 70% fuctional).

Ethicly I would say it is cowardice, you are refusing to accept a natural means of your life ending (And also the rather slim potential that you will recover on your own or doctors will do something experimental and save you). Instead you are such a coward that you want to be able to control your own death.
