I believe Euthanasia shouln't be allowed, I have several reasons to believe this. Below are a few quotes that mainly outline my argument and inspire me to encourage the banning of Euthanasia in the whole world. Read on...

Quotes:

Euthanasia weakens society's respect for the sanctity of life
Accepting euthanasia accepts that some lives (those of the disabled or sick) are worth less than others
Voluntary euthanasia is the start of a slippery slope that leads to involuntary euthanasia and the killing of people who are thought undesirable
Euthanasia might not be in a person's best interests
Euthanasia affects other people's rights, not just those of the patient
Proper palliative care makes euthanasia unnecessary
There's no way of properly regulating euthanasia
Allowing euthanasia will lead to less good care for the terminally ill
Allowing euthanasia undermines the committment of doctors and nurses to saving lives
Euthanasia may become a cost-effective way to treat the terminally ill
Allowing euthanasia will discourage the search for new cures and treatments for the terminally ill
Euthanasia undermines the motivation to provide good care for the dying, and good pain relief
Euthanasia gives too much power to doctors
Euthanasia exposes vulnerable people to pressure to end their lives
Moral pressure on elderly relatives by selfish families
Moral pressure to free up medical resources
Patients who are abandoned by their families may feel euthanasia is the only solution

Religious arguments:
Euthanasia is against the word and will of God
Euthanasia weakens society's respect for the sanctity of life
Suffering may have value
Voluntary euthanasia is the start of a slippery slope that leads to involuntary euthanasia and the killing of people who are thought undesirable

Conclusion:
Doctors are expected to care for people not KILL them. Legalising euthanasia, and yes! don't ignore it- sooner or later it will affect you and your familly. Euthanasia encourages the killing of humans. I strongly believe that in any state Euthanasia (that painfull injection of DEATH) should be demolished and strictly prohibited!

Thankyou

I believe euthanasia is a good thing:
If someone is suffering something absolutely horrible, they can be put out of their misery.
Unfortunately, you can not bring religion into a debate, as it is biased, and not everyone has the same religion.
If you can not afford the hospital bills you need to pay, you can be euthanized.
There is a selection process for euthanasia. You have to be accepted into the program.
If you were to get rid of euthanasia, think of all of the potential suicides there might be.
Euthanasia is death with dignity.
If someone has an incurable health related problem, that is causing them to die a slow and painful death; they can be euthanized.

Conclusion: Doctors are helping people be happier. They are preventing people from suffering longer then they should. It is a horrible experience to watch someone suffer, euthanasia can prevent people from having to watch it.
