Question: What do you think about euthanasia?

Examples of answers:

- It shouldn't exist because the decision on life and death is not up to us, but to God. I've heard of cases in which the patient came out of the coma after many years in the vegetative state.
- It should be allowed when both doctor and family agree that it is better for the patient.

Euthanasia: The act or practice of ending the life of an individual suffering from a terminal illness or an incurable condition, as by lethal injection or the suspension of extraordinary medical treatment. (The Free Dictionary)

I feel that Euthanasia, AKA mercy killing, is such a controversial issue which in my humble opinion is a fair option for those who are in a vegetative state. Think about those cases in which the person has an injury or illness that cannot be cured. I'm a 100% sure you wouldnt like to be in the person's shoes so why do you think it is plausible that you choose what is best for him or her? If only you could put youself in his/her place, and see how it feels...

Pondedaniel,

I agree with your statement, and applaud the use of plusible in this contex. The only nitpick that I could find in your post was the typographical error of not puting the " ' " in wouldn't.

I strongly disapprove of it. I'd place euthanasia on the same level as murder. And I agree with ponde: you'd have to stand and perhaps walk a bit in the shoes of a terminally ill patient to see what getting yourself killed or getting someone to kill you feels like.

Let life ebb away if you can't fix it up, but not outright kill the patient. And wave him good-bye.

Yes, of course I do not approve it too. But, if the person is severely ill and suffering from an unbearable endless pain which no medication can ease it enough to live her/his life with dignity ? In this situation,what would you do if the person(who is ill) asks you to put her/him to death??

Ailime,

A few very minor nitpicks in this rewrite:

"I also do not approve of it. But, what if the person is terminally illness an suffering from unbearable pain, which no medicaion can ease to allow that person any dignity of life? In this situation, what would your opinion of requested euthanasia be?"

What do you think, and why did I make the changes.

Yes, Bill

It's of course "approve of", I think this is the second time that I commit the same mistake!! :cry: :? I have to be more attentive... And, "endless" was redundant there.

Thank you again! :D

Hi friends,

It's a subject very hard to discuss, but I found an answer in the life's book. although many people don't know it, neither believe on it, I believe on it becouse I've learned that the Bible is my Lord speaking!!!

Let's look at Ec 8:8
no man has authority over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither has he power in the day of his death. Ec 8:8

Nobody likes of suffering, but it doesn't make be correct to decide if a person is ready to die, many times the Lord's intention are reveal through the suffering of one person.

See now, I myself am he; there is no other God but me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: and no one has power to make you free from my hand. Dt 32:39

I'm sorry for my english, it isn't very good but one day I will get there.

It's a hard matter to discuss however, since there is a lot of religious and nonreligious beliefs in the world, the only answer to this dilemma is to give the choice to patients, families and doctors to decide together about what would be the right choice in a particular case.

"You Don't Know Jack" with Al Pacino is a pretty good movie about this subject.

Hello Jerry. Let me do a little nitpicking myself. Your sentence contains a surplus of. You might consider dropping the of then.

As for euthanasia, I still consider it murder whether the parents or the patient do not like it.
