Make it personal and ask yourself this question, Do you want to be murdered when you are old?

I do not think their child would do that if they loved their parent. They would do it for their parents benefit, Not theirs. Some might not like their parents(understandable) but euthanasia should not be up to them unless that person cannot make the decision themselves. If it is at that point then it would really mean they are ill and probably would be suffering.

I disagree with allowing euthanasia to be legal. Many times, When parents are suffering from terminal / fatal diseases, Their (adult) children want to alleviate themselves from the financial burden that the treatment (of their parents) incurs on their bank accounts, And they use "relieving their pain" as a pretext for this ulterior motive. This occurrence is prevalent in many countries, Eg India.

I agree with the idea of people signing a document at a certain age. Although I also do believe that euthanasia has good moral value. If the person is suffering and likely won't like how they will have to live out their days then it should ultimately be their choice, No one else can choose for them. It's like how a vet would put down an animal for an incurable illness, This is essentially the same thing with people. Not everyone will agree of course, There are pros and cons when it comes to debates about certain things.

I think that nobody should be euthanized. We should all have to sign a document at a certain age so that if we do rely on machines for air and/or our heart pumping we will have proof of what we wanted.
