  • Well if the patient can't respond and it doesn't look like they'll ever recover enough to decide for themselves you might as well.....

  • People argue that it's murder, but it's worse to keep these people alive and drain hospital funds which could be allocated to people who can get better.

  • If they are never going to open there eyes again why keep them alive?They are basically dead anyway and 9/10 they would tell you to pull the plug and move on with your life. Also when people say its murder I just do not get that. The definition of murder is the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. This is lawful and justified. Also you waste so much more money keeping a person that might never wake up alive. Sometimes you have to know when you have done enough I believe.

  • I support euthanasia 100%, but let the patient have a choice in their fate.

  • Unless they have specifically stated and given clear permission in the event of a terminal illness, then no. Or unless the doctor is 100% sure that there is no chance of recovery

  • You cannot murder someone. If they ask to end their life that is different, but ending it for them is wrong because they have a right to life.

  • The only reason for doing it would be to save money. Is that right?
