I dont support mercy killing, for the only fact that i have seen people revive from the worst of the conditions, yes there is suffering, which i cannot even imagine, but i would only say one thing we should give life a chance.
i know someone who didnt gave-up on someone even after knowing that there was little or no hope. In the end she lost in her efforts and he lost his battle, but atleast she feels that she did everything she could do to save him. I know this very personally.

Mercy Killing is beneficial to the society in general.
If abortions are legal, then so can mercy killing be ...
But it should never be misused and ensuring that is quite a task i suppose
Moreover, weak minded people may jump the gun and decide on mercy killing before its actually necessary.
But if it can be ensured in the right circumstances, its best for the patient and his near ones

ya, i too feel people who are in pain and suffering need not be forced to stay alive by hooking them to machines. When a person is terribly ill and has no chance of getting cured, actually the doctors ask the patient's relatives whether they can withhold unwanted medical treatment. This might increase the probability of the patient's death. Thus, this mercy killing is beneficial. This is indirectly in vogue these days as the doctors give this option.
I have seen it with my own eyes when the doctors told my father that my grand father's all major organs have stopped functioning and asked my father whether he can be removed from artificial aids.

Mercy killing is the only way to end a patients suffering, when a patiedn requests a doctor or his/her family to end his/her suffering, i think its okay. Some people live in pain and suffering for years, wanting to end their life, but the society and some governments refuse some patients the right of ending their life.
I only think mercy killing is right if a patient is in unbearable pain, but if otherwise, then let the person/patient live.But mercy killing should be highly regulated beacuse a patient might just want to die without tangible reason and request the doctor, which might lead to very bad circumstances between the doctor and family of patient and aslo between the doctor and the government.

I can see how Mercy killing might be misused. I think it should be allowed only after a careful process is carried out that will determine whether its the best decision.And it should DEFINITELY only be carried out if the person is in great pain or if they are so heavily dependant on others that they have lost the will to live.
I agree with all of you who have said it's difficult to actually make the decision of euthenesia for someone close to you. I think people should write it in their will, if that is what they want under an extreme situation.
but i think it definitely is beneficial as its more heartbreaking to see someone suffer. You grieve over a death, but its so much harder to live with pain and live seeing someone suffer everyday! And the argument that people have that "we shouldn't interfere with Gods work", then you shouldn't even give people medication, because God didn't make those. Plus God doesn't like to see his loved ones suffer.
This is just what i think, obviously it is very very hard to legalise mercy killing becasue of its potential misuse!

I don't think so. I love my life. But for pople who don't for the moment, it's wrong to just finish urself off like that. Because who knows, u might start to love ur life later on. And Death is one thing that one can't turn back from. So, my vote goes to NO!

But mercy killing is not killing or wishing to die just because you don't love your life at that moment in time. I agree that just because someone is depressed they should be allowed to have mercy killing..that would be its misuse which i mentioned in my previous message (also why i think its not very practicaly at the moment cos of its potentional misuse)
But in theory, I agree with the concept. I mean if someone close to you is suffering a lot of pain, I think everyone in their prayers says " Either have a miracle and make this person completely ok(which even they know is impossible) or let them die a peaceful death and not suffer anymore". Euthenesia would just allow that peaceful death without any suffering sooner. Euthenesia is really allowed ( in the countries its allowed in) ONLY for terminally ill patients. so their only option IS death, Eutheneisa just allows a less painful end.
