The other day my neighbour s dog was put to sleep. She was already 15 which is very old for a dog and had some health problems. It seems as though animals that suffer from incurable cancers or are vey ill are put to sleep so as not to suffer. Then , if one can euthanise a dog ,a cat or another animal without asking their consent then why do we still refuse to euthanise a person that is asking for it all the time and who would just love to be delivered from pain and suffering.
Here in Switzerland a person can have Euthanasia in the following way. An association called EXIT gives them the exact medication to die without pain and they inject it themselves. Its therefore a way of suicide.
However if a person is tetraplegic(and I think that more than 50% of those who want to get euthanised are tetraplegic) cannot move a single finger and thus cannot inject themselves the deadly mix. Therefore here in switzerland they cannot die in dignity! This is ridiculous.........

I'm all for euthanasia, and I really do think that it ought to be legalized for some or most illnesses, and especially for people who are tetraplegic. Whats the point in living in pain and when you know you can't recover?

The problem with legalizing euthanasia is that it goes against major religions and thus it refuses to be legalized in a lot of countries.

Far too many religious kooks out there who feel their beliefs take precedent over the pain and suffering of another individual...

That and there are cases where the family members themselves are selfish and want to keep the people alive to benefit their feelings...

It's a crazy mixed up world. I support euthanasia 100%.

How does religion come into play? If you don't believe in it, don't get it! Mormons aren't allowed to drink alcohol or coffee but that doesn't mean no one else in the world can't. It's a personal choice that should be available to whoever decides its time.

It should be up to his/her choice.

 yes  and the irony is when you ask them if they ever put an animal down, they stop dead in their tracks, think about it for a second and say 'well that's different'. It's  redflag  What it comes down to is control:

Not according to the right wing zelots who proclaim that liberals are about interferring in your life.

So long as no one else is being harmed; people should be allowed to do WHATEVER they want.

I guess you know that the Northern Territory (Aus) introduced a law that permitted euthanasia following a strict routine of medical consultations. Then our Fed Parliament over-ruled it. Had it been a State law this could not have happened, but with a Territory, the Feds can kill the law. Dr Phillip Nitschke was active in the promulgation of the law.

I'd be in favour of Euthanasia, as long as it is properly regulated. The formalities should be simple, but transparent enough to avoid any wrongdoing and keep this under control.

I don't think you really need any regulations, though. Anyone would make sure, ten times over, that they have their behinds legally covered before assisting anyone with the procedure.
