    Euthanasia (from the Greek εὐθανασία meaning "good death": εὖ, eu (well or good) + θάνατος, thanatos (death)) refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life to relieve pain and suffering.


    Why is it fine for animals but for humans it is to some called murder.

    Is it not fair that people should be allowed to die with dignity and without pain and suffering.


    When is Euthanasia acceptable or is it not?

    Is this the same as suicide. i was speaking to a person who told me that these gays that commit suicide are all going to hell but yet this same person who says this, says euthanasia is acceptable in certain circumstances.

    So the question do you agree with this as a way of mercy or do you disagree with it and label it as murder or assisted suicide.

    theantijockYou know what's suicide? Smoking cigarettes. Overeating. High sugar diets. Driving fast. Parachuting. Crossing a busy street without looking both ways.

    You are so right

    If you knew that a bottle of poison would kill you in a few seconds would you drink it, what if you knew that poison took 5 years to kill you but it still kills. So people who drink and smoke and overeat and drive fast and doing other things actually commit suicide. It is just the difference here of time, some things kill quickly others do not
