  • Yes, it should be a human right.

    I do not understand the logic behind the illegality of euthanasia. Presumably human life is so precious that we do not have the right to decide to end it prematurely if we are suffering, but instead leave it up to God to decide. With regard to our pets, we do seem to recognize that there comes a point where the quality of their lives is negligible and we ought to use mercy by ending that life. God, I guess, is not that merciful.

  • Yes it should be allowed

    I think euthanasia should be allowed. You should be able to chose your own fate. You have the right to live your own life you should also be the person to chose how you end that life. You only live once? False. You live everyday, you only die once. End of story

  • Yes, we are kinder to animals.

    When an animal is suffering, we do not want him or her to live or die in agony so we practice euthanasia of a sort. We should be as kind to our sick and dying human beings. If someone wants to die in a certain way, that should definitely be allowed and widely accepted.

  • Yes, because its a kind way to die.

    Compared to the violent deaths provided by many diseases nowadays, many people are kept from the comfort of a sleeping death or at least a painless one. There should be a way for people to vouch into taking euthanasia, like our beloved animal companions, to make sure our deaths are not ones of suffering. I think its a good idea. Its not murder, its assurance of a painless passing.

  • Yes, It Is The Moral Thing To Allow

    Euthanasia should be allowed. People have the right to decide what to do with their own body. People who would consider euthanasia are often in a considerable amount of pain and physical or emotional suffering. They should be allowed to ease their pain and end their life with grace and dignity.

  • Absolutely, It Should Be Allowed

    Anybody who has seen a loved one die painfully from cancer would think it should be legal. It is not always the best choice, but ultimately, it should be a decision that a family and a patient should make. It is never an easy choice, but it is a choice they should have.

  • Only for those who actually need it.

    I believe that if a person has reached the age where they have lived their lives fully and happily, and it comes to the point where they can't take care of themselves and their body starts to fail, and they express a willingness to die, it is perfectly acceptable and merciful to grant them their wish so they may die peacefully and with dignity.

  • Euthanasia is still murder

    Euthanasia is not a human right anymore than suicide is. We have pain killers if they are in pain, but no one should die before their time. You cannot argue this point with the example of putting animals to sleep. Animals are in no way comparable to humans. Animals are sentient but do not have a moral consciousness, and we only put them down because there is nothing more that can be done for them and they do not have loved ones who care for them like humans do.
    Humans have family who love them and want them to live, who have things to say and things to put right. Euthanasia is wrong, and it is not merciful.
    Euthanasia is just a euphemism for giving up on someone.
