    Could the person who voted "I am not in favor of any kind of euthanasia: religious, moral reasons, etcetera" please explain why?

    I voted for 'I am in favor of voluntary euthanasia: with the person’s direct consent'. I am however curious- how would one go about voluntarily Euthanizing oneself (wouldn't that be classified as suicide)? Are doctors present? And wouldn't their presence and participation in the euthanasia violate that oath they take?

    Take care with the Left

    Hey! There's a little thing sometimes people omit when they consider euthanasia. In countries where the public health system is of bad quality and where most White individuals cannot afford decent health coverage, the legalization of euthanasia can have a counter-effect on our people... In this case it may serve government as an excellent excuse not to provide good healthcare and instead replace it with legal, free euthanasia...

    BTW, a similar thing also happens with abortion. The following example may be helpful to get the big picture. Claiming that a pregnant woman has a "right to choose over her body" and to decide whether not to rise a White child due to her living in a poor condition (or for more trifling reasons, such as not being able to afford good education for more than one child) is not compatible with an ethnically conscious political agenda............................

    So, in a nutshell, when talking about these issues, we must be cautious not to support measures which, under specific circumstances, might be helpful to the left-liberal, anti-White status quo.

    In an ideal world, passive euthanasia would be my choice but I realise that it is, perhaps, too "harsh" so consent is also fine.

    In that case, we shouldn't have a public health system at all, and leave it in private hands. That would also solve the problem of the potential for the government to push people into euthanasia.

    'voluntary euthanasia' is also termed 'assisted suicide', which it outlawed in the US.

    Although I personally have trouble applying it unto myself, I think any other person should have the right to do it voluntary if they really wanted to. Anything by other sources (Kavorkian, etc) would be just dodging what the person really wants and I believe they aren't really true to themselves if they prefer it that way. I also think cutting off life support is a different issue, because the person is asking to have it done, so it is voluntary. My family members have chosen voluntary when they wanted to die, so that may be another reason why I believe it is just.

    Yep, I think it's called assisted suicide. A physician must be there. They give the patient a lethal injection and it's bye bye cruel world.

    That's what I found on the Wikipedia link:

    In 2003, in the Netherlands, 1626 cases were officially reported of euthanasia in the sense of a physician assisting the death (1.2% of all deaths). Usually the sedative sodium thiopental is intravenously administered to induce a coma. Once it is certain that the patient is in a deep coma, typically after some minutes, Pancuronium is administered to stop the breathing and cause death.
    Officially reported were also 148 cases of physician assisted dying (0.14% of all deaths), usually by drinking a strong (10g) barbiturate potion. The doctor is required to be present for two reasons:
    • to make sure the potion is not taken by a different person, by accident (or, theoretically, for "unauthorized" suicide or perhaps even murder)
    • to monitor the process and be available to apply the combined procedure mentioned below, if necessary
    In two cases the doctor was reprimanded for not being present while the patient drank the potion. They said they had not realized that this was required.
    Forty-one cases were reported to combine the two procedures: usually in these cases the patient drinks the potion, but this does not cause death. After a few hours, or earlier in the case of vomiting, the muscle relaxant is administered to cause death.
    By far, most reported cases concerned cancer patients. Also, in most cases the procedure was applied at home.
    In an earlier 2000 study of 649 patients undergoing euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, 14% of patients undergoing euthanasia had complications such as waking from the coma, spasms or vomiting.[2] Thirty-two percent of patients undergoing physician-assisted suicide had complications which were troublesome enough in 18% to require their doctors to switch to active euthanasia. In this study physicians were absent in 28% of cases of euthanasia and 48% of cases of physician-assisted suicide.

    Yep, well, it can be said it's a violation of the Hippocratic oath but doesn't that oath also say they can't use knives and give abortion remedies to women? Cause they've been violating it already then. I say it's justifiable if they want to stop someone's pain.

    Assisted Suicide

    Assisted Suicide, also called Voluntary Euthanasia, is currently a contentious issue in many countries. The question in the debate is this: if a terminally ill person decides that they wish to end their life, is it acceptable for others to assist them? This would normally take the form of a doctor administering a lethal injection, which would end their life painlessly.

    Every human being has a right to life, perhaps the most basic and fundamental of all our rights. However, with every right comes a choice. The right to speech does not remove the option to remain silent; the right to vote brings with it the right to abstain. In the same way, the right to choose to die is implicit in the right to life.

    Whatcha think?

    I think too much '' universal values'' meaning the '' right to life'' one of those craps that Western liberals ramping about.

    I oppose euthanasia. We were given life by God (or another force), not by ourselves. So only He should take it.
