Euthanasia is a controversial subject. It is my personal opinion that a person who is terminally ill and is suffering should have the legal right to shorten the period of their own suffering. Of course, this is debatable in several circumstances.

Euthanasia is a Greek term for "Easy death". which refers to a quick and painless killing of a person (or animal) who suffers in a serious painful and incurable unhealthy condition for a long period due to no medical remedy. Its also known as Mercy killing.

I oppose euthanasia. If we view it on the religious and moral grounds, no one has the right to take one's life according to the principle of Ahimsa. Leave the matter to the Almighty God and let Him take decision according to His Will. "The Lord gives and the Lord takes away". However, I believe that there is an ultimate hope - the patient can be relieved or even be healed - thru strong belief in God, effective meditation and prayers.

Euthanasia refers to the practice of ending a life in a manner which relieves pain and suffering.The following answer is the BA for the same question,
As in all countries in the world, there is killing, both legal and illegal, in India too, for e.g. sentenced to death by Court of Law, killing during wars, foeticide etc, and those illegal which are enumerous by accidents, hostility, revenge, etc. and in both the cases life of human is at stake. By legaliziing killing by any method, a killing does not become killing. Life is taken with no sentimetal consent on unnatural &undivinely arbitrary support. If man has no his own law to get a life, he has no right to have a law to take a life. Any type of killing is inhuman. Most people suffering beyond tolerance under any circumstance, say physically sick, mentally depressed, want to die. To kill him with his consent or consent of his immediate relative is nothing but cold headed murder and I fail to understand as to how it is justified as ' ...more

Euthanasia is deliberately bringing about a gentle and easy death making the last days of the patient as comfortable as possible. This is to ensure a calm and peaceful death, within the context of relieving incurable suffering in terminal illness or disability. Euthanasia is voluntary, when requested by the sufferer, involuntary or compulsory if it is against the will of the patient, passive when death is hastened by deliberate withdrawal of effective therapy or nourishment.
Almighty God has created man in his image. He is the giver and sustainer of life. He alone has the right to withdraw life. Life is not a right but a gift of God, belonging to God and at all times in His hand. We have no right to take away deliberately a human life, even ones own.
Euthanasia requests may be born of depression and confusion or out or a feeling of worthlessness or due to persuasion of interested parties with ulterior motives. Respect for the person of the patient and concern for the family should le ...more
