Euthanasia for those who want it - yes or no?


The euthanasia debate has reared it's head again in the UK about people having to travel to Switzerland if they want euthanasia to end their life. Many people are saying that the law should be changed to allow some form of legal euthanasia in the UK. My own personal feelings are - people should have the right to make their own choices in this matter and especially if they feel this will allow them to die peacefully. pain free and with dignity. What's your own point of view, would you want euthanasia legalised in your country - 'yes' or 'no'?

    I think it should be allowed after careful consideration. Dying with dignity should be the norm.

    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.

    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 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?

    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.
