Passive Euthanasia is already allowed here. Given that in countries where it is legal there are no problems/ negative effects on society there. But that alone doesn't suggest whether it is moral or not.

I feel things like this should be judged on individual circumstances rather than it being allowed all round.

Honestly, I don't see the debate. It is the person's life. If they're unhappy and not living to their fullest potential then why not allow them to die in a dignified way

Yes, a person should be able to control their own life. We don't get a choice in whether we are born or not, but we do have a choice to decide to continue living or not.

Why?
Several reasons, I think one of them being that if euthanasia is legalised, it will allow selfish families to pressurise their vulnerable terminally ill loved ones to accept the option of euthanasia instead of palliative care.

So you are happy for people to suffer in their final days and weeks even though we have the ability to end it?

Is that your only reason?

No, I don't think they should suffer. That's why I think there should be greater investment into palliative care.

Yes for cases where a person has no hope of improving.

I would need very careful guidelines because any person can argue to be suffering. I wouldn't agree with it being offered to people in mental anguish as a way out.

If a qualified doctor can certify that a person is experiencing a level of suffering that prevents any quality of life, and there is no hope of their condition improving then I consider it a humane option to offer.

That's a very specific single hypothetical case. You can make an argument against literally anything on the basis of it being misused and being capable of causing harm if misused.

I mean, don't you have to analyse hypothetical cases when you are making a new law?

Sometimes there is nothing you can do, why continue to live if there is nothing left to live for?
