    Yes. I have a health condition, if I get worse l want to go to Switzerland, even though it wouldn't be terminal.

    I'm pretty sure I would as I'd rather not suffer needlessly for the last few weeks of my life. I watched a family friend go through terminal cancer and the last few weeks were horrible for her. So yeah I'm pro-euthanasia.

    No, as I do not believe in it for other people. We would be going down a slippery slope if we did, in my view.

    I was about to say Yes.
    However thinking about it - There are multiple people who have been il and given days to live and somehow pulled through so id like to stay alive if i thought that chance existed
    That being said if its more painful to live then i would go for yes

    Depends. If my quality of life was awful (pain etc) and I was a burden on my family (they had to care for me significantly) then yes, absolutely. But I'd opt for it even if I wasn't terminal.

    If I was able bodied, and didn't suffer much I'd go as long as I could and make the most of what I had left. So the 'terminal' part wouldn't really affect my decision all that much.

    I've watched/nursed multiple family members through the prolonged torture of cancer, and if that were me, I'd find a way to cut to the chase.

    Depends on the illness. If I was in constant pain and there was no chance of me recovering then I'd want to go out on my terms - not subject people who care about me to the memory of drips, hospitals and drug tempered agony or indeed go through it myself. If there was 100% no treatment then I'd want to go out on my terms, if there was a chance of recovery however slim I'd ride it out.

    no unless it was guaranteed to become unimaginely painful or if i didnt have kids.

    however, i have watched actual videos of the process from the place in switzerland - dignitas
    really strange to watch

    No. I'd lose time I could've spent with my family. And there's always the chance of a miracle occurring (however statistically unlikely).
