What are your opinions about euthanasia? I have to write a persuasive essay about it, and I haven't completely decided whether I'm for or against it, but I'm leaning towards against. Do you think it should be legalized? Why or why not? I'm not asking this just because I have to write a report; I am genuinely interested in what you have to say. :D

I am only for it to dismiss any harsh suffering, with mutual consent from the sufferer. Something should be on paper to document the clauses and acknowledgements of the process. :unsure: Don't hand this in or you'll flunk.

I can see both sides of the arguament, I'm unsure of what to think at the moment. But I also think its really unfair for a person to ask someone to end their life for them, because then that person would have that on their conscience, that they had killed someone. Or I know I would anyway. But then I think that if the person really couldnt bear being alive ...urgh, i dont know. But i think, like you, I am more against it.
Theres also different types of euthanasia isnt there? Voluntary, non-voluntary, unvoluntary..there are others i think.
sorry that wasnt very helpful. :)

I see, that is only human emotion. If I am in a state of incurable pain and will need to live with it, and it's is critical. I want an overdose of morphine, after I sign the waiver. -_-

Maybe the only reason that some want to legalize euthanasia is to justify an "easy" way out for "hopeless" patients that will make the "burden" of "treating" them "legally" disappear. If one wants to "check out" because they can't bear it any longer then there are plenty of ways that are "illegal" but once a subject seizes to live wouldn't it be the moment when he/she seizes to be subject to the "LAW" that makes euthanasia "illegal" ... and why then those who remain alive (i.e. doctors, insurance companies, etc) should be concerned about the "legality" or "illegality" thereof? ... just a thought...

A putting of life to rest forever, usually animals. They use lethal injection in most cases. My dog had a bunch of tumors and old and in pain so she is better off in doggie heaven I suppose.

Well no, i had no idea what it was. B))

And i am for it... To make an animal suffer is cruel. If it's going to die either way, why prolong it?

They are talking about human euthanasia, not animals. Animal euthanasia is legal... and since humans are animals too, I'm not exactly sure where the line is drawn :P jk. But really. I think, that if someone wants to end suffering, why not. It's their life. I mean c'mon. Who really cares <- not to sound mean at all, but basically I was saying that it's no reason for it to be a big issue. So I'm for OR against it :D lol

My only note on this subject is that when your dog gets old, and is living in pain, and is relying entirely on medication and treatments to survive then it is considered "humane" to put the dog down.

To do the same thing to a human is murder.
