    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.

    My sentiments exactly. If one gets to the stage that one requires someone else to wipe one's arse
    then it is time to fall on one's sword. In more enlightened times a doctor would make a visit and administer a little something to hasten one on one's way. I am also in favour of the euthanasia of babies with serious defects and abnormalities. One's body is one's body and the decision about when and how to die belongs to the individual. Only the cowardly cling to life at all costs.

    Because Belgium is a Masonic controlled country, it's always at the forefront of so-called ethical advancements. Belgium was the second country in the world to legalize gay marriage for example (and we had our first gay prime minister, some corrupt Italian socialist, 15 years ago)- and without any difficulty too, there's little in the way of parliamentarian debate and opposition. You rarely hear anything in the Belgian press about cases of euthanasia, even though it happens on a large scale, especially the more incomprehensible, scandalous cases are completely ignored by the media. It's not an issue to them at all. We have to rely on foreign sources here to find out what's going on in this country.

    Doctors Euthanize 38 Year-Old Woman Dealing With Depression Instead of Treating Her

    In another horrifying example of the consequences of Belgium’s euthanasia laws, three doctors are facing trial accused of certifying a woman as autistic so that she could die by euthanasia.



    Tine Nys (pictured, center) died by lethal injection in 2010, at the age of 38. She had told two doctors and a psychiatrist that her suffering was ‘unbearable and incurable’ so that she could qualify for euthanasia under Belgian law.

    No treatment attempted, just death

    However, her family say that her suffering was down to a broken heart after the end of a relationship, not autism. Moreover, they say the law was broken because Ms Nys was never treated for autism and so it had not been established that her suffering was “incurable”. She died only two months after the diagnosis of autism was made, and the last treatment she had received for psychological problems was 15 years prior to her death.

    Ms Nys’ sisters Lotte and Sophie have accused the doctors of making a rushed decision without treating her for autism. They are facing trial for failing to comply with euthanasia laws and poisoning, in the first such case since euthanasia was legalised in Belgium in 2002.

    No-one is safe

    Ghent prosecutors moved just days after a similar case in The Netherlands, another country with notoriously lax euthanasia laws. There, a doctor who secretly drugged a 74 year old dementia patient’s coffee before getting her relatives to hold her down while she administered a lethal injection is finally being prosecuted.

    In a warning to the rest of the world, these two countries provide examples of how the most vulnerable groups in society are put at risk when euthanasia is legalised. In Belgium, three children were killed by euthanasia in 2016 and 2017. In Flanders, 10% of cancer patients are euthanised, some without consent. This year, the Netherlands allowed a 29 year old woman with mental illnesses to die by assisted suicide.

    Alcoholics, sex-abuse victims, and dementia sufferers also qualify and have died in these countries. When these most vulnerable groups are “helped” to die, it is clear that no one is safe.

But then Jonathan said there were things you have to do even if they are dangerous. “Why?” I asked. “Otherwise you aren’t a human being but just a piece of dirt.” - Astrid Lindgren, “The Brothers Lionheart”

    I see no problem in euthanising a 74 year old. They would have had a 'good innings' anyway. In more enlightened times relatives would either smother an old person that had become senile or the doctor would have given them a 'little something' to 'help them on their way'. This was standard practice in England at least. Why end up a vegetable?
    The 38 year old and 29 year old should have been committed to a mental hospital or should simply have committed suicide if they were that way inclined. I am surprised why people pay good money to euthanasia clinics when they can do it for themselves. At the end of the day the body belongs to the individual and the individual should decide when they have had enough.
