Yes. I think that in circumstances where someone has a terminal illness or a totally disabling illness or disability, they should absolutely have the chance to end their life with dignity.

no it is a separate issue because people have the right to end their lives this should not stay illegal because there may be some abuses. Any potential for abuse should be treated separately.
thats like banning everyone from driving because some people might get hit by a car and die,
Your statement is a false dichotomy
Even so I don't think euthanasia is something that should be completely banned.

No. It is too open to abuse. There are no safeguards that could prevent some doctors abusing this. Pressure could be placed on the individual concerned to make that decision when they don't want to.
The family may also put pressure on the patient to commit suicide due to inheritance issues or because that person is viewed as a burden on the family.
I also have issues with assisted suicide because of the message. It removes the sanctity of life if suicide, instead of being seen as something to prevent, is acceptable.
It also puts health care professionals in a difficult position as they are being asked to provide something that will kill a person when they went into that profession to prolong life.
