I think that was addressed quite early that if a patient is terminal, that is one thing BUT if the patient is NOT terminal that euthanasia is wrong.
It is a very emotional situation of course, but what is "unbearable"?
Yes that was some peoples take on it but by no means is the final say or necessarily the truth
I'm kinda with Nessa on this one. What's "terminal" anyways? What if two doctors differ on if the patient is terminal?
Edit: say we go with this definition:
A condition caused by injury, disease or illness from which, to a reasonable degree of medical probability, a patient cannot recover, and in which
(1) The patient’s death is imminent, or
(2) The patient is in a persistent vegetative state
I'm not happy with euthanasia being acceptable with this definition.
Wouldn't we be playing God?
