I'm fine with anyone wanting to do this - saves a whole lotta money for insurance companies, medical plans, etc.
I fear it becoming enshrined in law. First it'll be optional, then after the governments, lobbyists, budgetary constraints etc are thrown in it'll become MANDATORY.
If it were legal and widely performed back in the early 80s and gay men with AIDS had all been offing themselves when symptoms developed, or even worse, systematically terminated by government, would there be effective life-prolonging therapies today?
Should a parent be allowed to terminate their eight-year-old
child who has developed a terminal illness? or is severely handicapped?
There are a lot of issues around the word euthanasia.
In care-giving, I've seen people with and without DNRs.
Without a DNR, the health system is going to try a lot harder to keep you well and happy so they don't have to use any heroics. One lady I looked after in palliative had a urinary tract infection. They let her suffer for over 30 days! I was told she was dying anyway - signed DNR on file.
Needless to say a few well placed words in the ear of a sympathetic doctor got her antibiotics for 72 hours which completely cured the infection.
