    Yes. Don't see the point of staying alive, possibly in constant pain, maybe not having much of a life if I'm just going to end up dying in a few weeks or so.

    Yes, what’s the point of suffering and being in agonising pain when you’re going to be dead in a few weeks/months anyway?

    That extra day or month or two can provide quality time with family members or others. Can help conclude a life rather than disrupt it - provide adequate time for end of life counseling.

    Yes and I think euthanasia should be legal.

    Depends entirely on the illness. Terminally ill doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be crippled/in pain for the rest of your life. If that were the case then I imagine I'd want to live what's left. If I was in a state that it could barely be classed as living, then yes I may want to give up.

    It depends, like if it were now then yes but say I'm married and have kids, then I definitely wouldn't because my life has a huge significance to other people so I wouldn't be selfish about it

    Suicide is considered by some to be the worst of all sins as this life was not given to us to just give up. Where we end up will be even worse so there is no release from pain except we also have to pay for this grave sin as well.

    I'd like to say no, but realistically it would probably depend on the illness in question, and my quality of life at the time, as well as the impact it was having on those close to me.
