    Having seen the struggle some people have when there is no possibility of a cure I'm very much in favor of it.

    There comes a time when pain medication, even the very strongest may knock you out and in your sleep you're still moaning in pain. We wouldn't let a dog live with that kind of outcome, we should treat our people at least as well.

    Good. Quality of life is more important than quantity. There are always going to be grey areas (that's why doctors are involved - who are both impartial and expert in their field) but making people against their will live out the last bit of their life in extreme pain and discomfort is not compassion.

    It's a good idea Shilo.

    On the other side of the pro-life pro-choice debate, you and other activists shouldn't force someone who is in miserable pain with a terminal illness to live.

    There is no point to it. Their fate is between the patient and their doctor.
