    Euthanasia should be an option for those in constant pain, but only after a long process where they are able to discuss it with psychologists and maybe priests. To ensure that it does not become an easy way out, or a spontaneous decision.

    I am very uneasy about families deciding about euthanasia, since not all families can be trusted. Some people carry cards that approve of them donating their inner organs after death, and maybe one should think in equal terms about euthanasia?

    It would be interesting to hear more religious opinions on the subject.

    I agree with the points Oskorei set forth for Euthanasia to be an option. A patient should have to consult with a psychologist and a priest to gain mental, and spiritual clarity in what he/she is seeking to do.

    These people often receive little if any medical attention, such as the ones who sell their body to science, and the people who have 'Organ Donor' on their drivers licenses.

    Euthanasia is fine in my humble opinion, though suffering kind of grows on you.
    Scars are a reminder of pain. Pain, of life. Life, of suffering.

    It really depends if God exists or not. If He does, then euthanasia is roughly the same as suicide, meaning you go straight to hell. Life is a gift given by God, it is the proof of his love towards you. Therefore, by rejecting or wasting it in any possible way, you at the same time reject God's love, thus you rejects God himself. You obviously can't go to paradise if you reject God, because paradise IS God, more or less.

    At least that's my opinion on the subject.

    This is always a sticky subject, and one that a lot of people wouldn't even dare to approach, but I feel that human euthanasia in some circumstances is a very practical and viable option that should be considered, and not shunned as being immoral or wrong.

    For example, you have an 85 year old person who has lost all psychological capacity, let's say due to advance stage Alzheimer's disease, who is incompetent both physically and mentally, can no longer eat, drink or use a toilet and is basically wasting away in a nursing home bed, completely unaware of his/her own surroundings and exsistence in general. Now, what kind of life is that? Who would want to continue living in that kind of state? I feel that a person in that situation should be euthanised.... What is the point of sustaining something that is basically already dead? Why prolong the inevitable? For the benefit of a person's loved ones? I say, pull the darn plug already!

    Euthanasia, in other cases, is acceptable IMO as well. People who are comatose, brain dead, physically and mentally incapacitated, etc. If the person possess no outward signs of life, besides a beating heart and functioning lungs... It's time to put it to an end.

    I feel that feeding tubes, breathing tubes, iron lungs, etc., (when used to sustain those who have no hope of recovery), are inhumane and barbaric. People speak of morality and God and right and wrong when it comes to the termination of human life, but I say it is immoral to prolong the existence of something that without a machine and tons of medications would die naturally. In life, one can always expect that death is the end... So in this day and age of knowledge, science and enlightenment, what makes us think that we can 'cure' old age, a terminal illness or failing organs?

    Euthanasia, in some cases, is a very humane way to end the un-needed suffering of a human being... Because to live in a state of complete mental/physical degradation is not living at all... It's slow death.

    Die with honour. Don't die while wining "It hurts!"
    Is lying in bed drooling, urinating and defacting on yourself honourable???
    "Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her:
    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." - Goethe

    Evola deals with the subject of the noble death from a Traditionalist perspective in Ride the Tiger. If there is interest, I can quote the section
