We euthanize our dying pets - do you believe we should offer assisted suicide to the terminally ill?


When our beloved pets are unable to function any more, we often euthanize them to end their suffering. If someone is terminally ill and suffering, perhaps even unable to get out of bed or care for themselves, should we offer them the same service by giving them right to end their lives if they choose? Do you think this would be morally sound or unacceptable?

    Very well said, mj. I certainly do think that it's more than a bit strange that people aren't given control over their own deaths. I think you're a very admirable person to be open to aiding a loved one in such a massive way.

    Good point. I remember a couple bringing in their old dog to euthanize it because they were going on vacation to Hawaii and had not found a caretaker willing to keep up with the meds. If they had an old parent on meds?
