In extreme cases, should be allowed but all possible safety measures should be put in place to see that others do not in any way influence or coerce the person to ask for mercy killing.

Euthanasia.....I totally support this
Its our life...and when one is in incurable pain...
when one is reduced to a vegetative state of existence....
then the Docs should be allowed to use medicines to end...
or remove a support system to ensure an end with dignity !

If that can give relief to the incurable sufferers I think we must vote and approve it-But the Law should be made clear and each case has to be treated with utmost consideration

First thing, we human beings have no right to take away the life of another person or animal(animals excepting for food). Second, in the name of mercy killing, people will start killing human beings to loot their property or even to take away their body spare parts.

It is irreverence to life........ NOT allow mercy killing!
Life is meant to be lived with dignity and joy......not suffer or survive in coma, just vegetating.
And who has the right to say someone shud SUFFER unnecessarily?
We shud enact laws to allow mercy killing with suitable conditions and precautions!

I support it in chronic patients in some incurable painful condition BUT with caution . because if it is allowed .easily ... it will pose many serious threats to humanity and human rights of the people .... it may prove to be a disaster ...
