    Exactly. Plus I even go as far as saying that those furry friends are privileged against us/humans.

    Personally I don't care about other peoples believes (or ideas via their religions) ... but they should keep those just themselves.
    What comes to euthanasia ... I don't think those issues at all. For me it would be question of mercy ... just like with those furry friends.

    Yes. I believe in voluntary euthanasia that is sanctioned by the state, and conducted with professional dignity.

    There is absolutely no legitimate excuse for prolonging the suffering of those who only want to reach that inevitable point in life sooner than the rest of us.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    I think the 'youth in Asia' should not be flooding into Europe! :-D


    Ok ... seriously though, most of us when presented with our dog or cat suffering through some painful and incurable situation will resort to euthanasia so they don't have to live in pain.
    I think humans should be able to legally proclaim they want to end their life if the situation is incurable and painful.

    I voted for voluntary euthanasia. People should have control over their own time of death. If it's wrong for another person to end someone's life against their will, then it shouldn't be right to make someone live against their will. The use of a doctor can help to make their passing as comfortable as possible. It's a mercy.

    I am in support of voluntary euthanasia (direct consent), mainly because of the risk of spouses and relatives abusing the system for inheritances and other material gains. I have had conversations with others who are not in support of any form of euthanasia and their main argument usually centres around religion and not 'ending their life before their time' - while this is a valid point (being religious myself), it is an easy argument to make for the person who is not in severe and chronic pain.
