yesterday my aunt had her dog put to sleep, she was 11, she had started to lose her back legs, and up until yesterday i would have said it was wrong putting her to sleep, but because i have seen her suffering it has changed my mind considerably,is there any1 else that agrees with me saying if an animal suffers it should be put out of its misery??

Yes. It should. And I wouldn't hesitate to extend the same principle to humans.

im sure euthanasia is wen u chose to die yourself... dot see how, for example, a dog can tell its owner it wants to die...

i do think tho that if they r in pain its best to put them to sleep. im sure the animal wud rasther die peacefully with its owner there, than in terrable pain

Its a very hard issue.
I think that yes, if the animal is going to physically suffer, it should be put down.
But, i think its hard to try and use the same justification for humans.

I should have thought it would be easier to justify for humans as they can (normally) make that choice for themselves.

for example if they r paralysed or have motor nurone disease eating away at them, this would give them the right to choose i feel

I know that. But thats also why its harder. Someone could feel really bad and just want to die one day, and the next feel perfectly fine with everything, and feel fine the rest of their lives. People are more volatile than animals.

Well, I think we're talking at cross purposes. I was thinking more about someone suffering horribly from terminal cancer who made a rational decision that they wanted to throw the towel in a year early, and not someone who happens to be feeling a bit "down in the dumps" on a Monday morning.

I know that. But thats the issue. Where do you draw the line?
What diseases or disabilities are sufficiently bad to be something where Euthanasia is acceptable?

I think that would be a matter for the medical profession, research groups, and actual sufferers support groups to decide, and press government accordingly.

There'd surely be some gray areas but I've no doubt that anybody in the final stages of cancer for example ought to be able to "qualify"
