    If people who help others commit euthanasia are considered murderers, why aren't 'feeders' considered murderers too? Seeing as they get off on people reaching hundreds and hundreds of pounds, which has been proven to reduce life expectancy drastically.

    The difference is that people who help others commit suicide (helping someone commit euthanasia is helping someone to euthanise someone else) are acting directly with the intention of ending life.

    Feeders are not intending to kill.


    This is not to say that I don't support euthanasia. I think it is definitely something that needs to be legalised albeit enormously heavily regulated.
