Okay, so in the United States, euthanasia has been deemed illegal due to "moral reasons." But, wouldn't it seem more unfair if we were to leave these people who are destined to never awake from a coma or to slowly and painfully die to rot by themselves? Doctor Kavorkian was considered a bad person by society for having assisted his mortally ill patients to take their lives. Is it considered murder if you're helping the person take their own life? In Australia, for a period of time, they used to sell these packages designed specifically to take your own life. Basically, what they were were bags that you put over your head tied off so that you could suffocate yourself to death. I feel that not all people should be elligible for euthanasia. If they are in a coma for more than three months, and the doctors say that they'll never wake up, and even if they do, they'll be a vegetable for the rest of their lives, then the family should be allowed to decide on if they want them to live or die. Also, if the patient themself is going to die, and they know it, then they should be allowed to have a quick, painless, druge induced death, instead of living longer and dealing with excruciating pain for the rest of their lives. Go ahead, yell at me for my opinion. But, face the facts. If you were in this condition, would you want to be a drain on your family, or would you want to be euthanized? If it's okay for our pets, then it should be okay for us.
