I think I'm kind of for it. I mean, if someone has an illness that will kill them and their quality of life has been affected then I kind of understand it. But then I don't agree with it cuz it's asking someone to kill you, ya know? So I guess I'm on the fence. Lol

I wouldn't want to be a vegetable. I'm for it as long as the person who requests it has filled out all the forms; it could be abused very easily!

 I can see how someone would want it, but I am totally against it going by what the Bible teaches us about taking a life.

I don't agree with it, if things are that bad, have a DNR signed, so that no life saving measures can be taken, no one should intentionally take a life IMO

 I am for it-- I am of the mind 'your body, your choice'.

I suppose it would depend on why. Having some incurable disease I could understand but to just do it to being doing it seems wrong.

 I agree mrsnoble2004- I think it should only be used in cases when someone is terminally ill and needs the assistance of a medical device to continue life. I do not think people should just be able to kill themselves just to do it.

I think if you are at the point in an illness that everyone knows you won't get better, and if you are suffering, I think a Dr. should help you if that is what you want. It should be legal, and the people involved shouldn't get in any trouble for it.

I can see why someone would want this but still I'm against it.
