Best Answer ESPeck1919 says
I think it should be allowed after careful consideration. Dying with dignity should be the norm.
Hi ESPeck1919, I agree with you, as a nurse myself and also having to watch my Mum linger for weeks on end in pain, euthanasia would have been kindest and the most dignified for her.

Hi timetraveler2 - oh that is awful about your Mum! My own Mum did linger in a lot of pain, this was only for a few weeks - not years. And yes, I've had beautiful dogs all my life - not one of them has ever suffered the way some people have!
Hi Express10 - that's sad about your Dad and I can understand it - my Mum was in pain for about 3 months before she died from complications of a perforated ulcer. Everyone knew there would be no turning back and so euthanasia would have been kinder.
I agree with you innerspin - and there are complications. However, in Switzerland they have carried out euthanasia with little or no problems. We could follow the same kind of regime that the Swiss have.

Hi Rosemay, I agree with you. It would be a very scary place to live where euthansia was used in order to cut costs! I would suggest looking at how Switzerland has managed this successfully for many years and use a similar plan?
