legal, yes.  extremely well regulated though. SOOOOO much room for abuse in that area.

Quoting EvilAsh:

I believe it should be. At least, for like terminally ill patients and whatnot. Why make them suffer? It just seems so inhumane to me.

Absolutely.  If I can have my dog put down b/c it's suffering, I should be able to have my grampa put down if he wants.

Yes. Absolutely.

We euthanize or beloved pets when they have terminal illnesses and are suffering, so why would we force our human loved ones to suffer? Or when in a vegetative state, why wouldn't you help them?!

I think it is cruel to force a person to suffer when it is not necessary.

 I agree.  Quantity of life is of no value if there is not also quality of life, and what kind of quality of life does someone have if they're so sick, in unbearable pain, unable to care for themselves at all, and restricted to a hospital bed?  When it reaches the point that the end result is death regardless of treatment, then it should be the patient's choice how they wish to proceed.
