    I would rather have written responses. It's a large research project. I don't want it to be a statistical analysis.

    I think it should be dealt with on a case by case basis.

    For. Simply because NO-ONE should have any say over who ends your life apart from yourself. Denying someone the right to die is an example of people sticking their moral views above someone's suffering.

    I'm doing it for a project module next semester so I'll probably have more to think about once I've started doing it in seminars.

    Should be allowed.

    I disagree with the notion of anyone else having a say over whether I should be allowed to end my own life or not. As long as I am a competent individual, it should be allowed.

    Why do you think it should be case to case basis? Who should be euthanized and who shouldn't?

    For - because if people are suffering they should have the right to die with the aid of someone. Personally, Id rather die than have an illness as severe as something like Locked in Syndrome. Death is something private, if someone wants to die for 'appropriate' reasons, they should be able to. It should be regulated however.

    Do we have the right to die when we want to?

    Should be allowed. I don't really see why the state should be stopping people making the decision to end their own life if they are competent to do so.
    If they aren't competent? Who makes the decision?

    Why is it your choice? We don't have control over our own death.

    No matter what the patient asked for, the person performing the Euthanasia is still responsible for taking away someone's life.
    Imagine, if, in the last 5 seconds before a patient is dying from Euthanasia, they regret their own decision to take away their own life.... and then it's too late.... The person who performed the Euthanasia would be held responsible for taking away that person's life. A person's life is their human right. And to take away a person's life is basically taking away their human right.

    Someone who say for example, has been completely paralyzed after an accident should be given the benefit of making his/her own decision.

    Whereas I dont agree with a perfectly normal person deciding they want to kill themself.

    Well yeah definitely. We live our own lives, I can't see why anyone should have the right to say we aren't allowed to end it ourselves.

    How could it be regulated?

    Yeah, a person's life is their human right, so why shouldn't they have the right to do what they want with it?
