Euthanasia - Acceptable or not?
Our friend Wikipedia describes it thus: "Euthanasia (literally "good death" in Ancient Greek) refers to the practice of ending a life in a painless manner. As of 2008, some forms of euthanasia are legal in Belgium, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, Switzerland, the U.S. state of Oregon, and Thailand. Stances on euthanasia vary greatly; it is called murderous by some and merciful by others. Such controversy arises in part from the serious moral issues attached to the subject and in part from the fact that "euthanasia" is an umbrella term that describes a number of different methods."
What do you think? Acceptable or not - and why?
My stance is that Euthanasia is an acceptable practice, and under certain circumstances I would take the option if it were available. In fact, I would travel far to exercise my right to do this if it is still illegal in this country if and when that time comes.
