Just wondered what peoples opinions were on Euthanasia, although it is illegal commit Euthanasia in the UK i still want to hear people's opinions, for those who don't know what euthanasia is:

Euthanasia refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering.

I'm for it. I think it'll probably be legalised one day.

I'm for it providing patient is off sound mind, if patient isn't off sound mind have an external doctor look over their results and talk to the attending then they can either agree or veto the patients choice

I see your point but what if the patient is basically a husk, they can't do anything without supervision

I'm all for it 100% as long as there are the proper safeguards put in place, you know like making sure the patient is of sound mind when making the decision and isn't being pressurised into it by family etc. Psychological assessments would also be necessary. I hope it legalised in Scotland in my lifetime.

That's my reasoning behind it as well, i've always supported it, tbh euthanasia is almost the same as "putting down" an animal isn't it, and that is perfectly legal

It could be a fantastic solution in certain situations, but it also sounds quite sinister and depressing in others. I wouldn't particularly want to see the day where people who've been through some ****ty times recently and want to die as a result are legally assisted in that process by the very same people who've spent their careers learning to prolong life and health

Yeah obviously that goes without saying, if it were legal it'd only be offered to those deemed mentally competent by probably multiple doctors. But a lot of people would argue that depressed individuals have just as much right to end their lives as individuals with physically debilitating conditions. It's a dodgy subject tbh

yes that is true, but when someone suffers from depression, they always look on the bad side of life (i know from experience) therefore they are not thinking clearly about the whole picture
