Do you agree with Voluntary Euthanasia?

Also referred to as Assisted Suicide for terminally ill patients that personally (in right state of mind) decide that this is what they desire.

  • Yes I agree with it. It should be LEGAL. We don;t make our animals suffer, but our relatives have no choice.

  • I lean towards agreeing but I still have one foot on the fence. To take ones own life is bad enough but to ask someone to take it for you is almost like hiring a assassin. At the same time we allow our pets to die with dignity but not our own parents. Most of me feels that with appropriate balance and check, meaning multiple diagnosis and recommendations from unaffiliated doctors that it should be legal.

  • I think people should be able to choose whether they want to suffer through it or not. I don't even know why this is illegal-so much for living in a "free" country. I suppose the gov't makes more money by keeping the terminally ill alive.

  • It's easy enough to put in checks and balances so it's not abused. Let's let people die with dignity.
