Could/Would you assist someone...

If they asked you to end their misery?

Example: Your spouse, mom, sibling, etc., is dying of a terminal disease. They are in so much pain and only have a short time to live but can't kill themselves. They ask you to do it. Could you do it? Would you do it?

As much as I think it would be the humane thing. I wouldn't because I know that assisting suicide is considered killing someone

I have no idea, I have never been in that situation and I hope I never am. Slow painful death is just about the worst thing I can think for someone I love and I would like to think I would help them end it peacefully but I would also be frightened of being accused of murder, especially being a mom who needs to be there for her children.

Nope, I'm not God. I would make sure they had what ever they could to help w/pain but to end their life like they are an animal, couldn't do it.

I would but I don't want to remember I'm the one who did it.

Nope. It's not my place to decide when someone dies. Only God can make that decision.
