    The Finnish medical association holds untimely death as the traditional enemy of medicine science, because the starting point of the physician ethics is serving a man honoring the life.

    Finland's patient law (785/1992) and legislation does not accept euthanasia and according to the law a patient doesn't have the right to demand euthanasia. According to Finnish criminal law ending of the life, a patient is a punishable act, which is classified a crime of killing.

    The Finnish medical association concerns negatively to initiatives for legalizing of euthanasia. Profession of physicians abstains for operations which primarily intention is hasten the death of a patient. The world medical association advice physicians to abstain assisting of euthanasia, even if it were forbidden according to the law of the country. In America in the state of Oregon and in Europe, Netherland, Belgium and Switzerland have legalized euthanasia.

    The world is going on all the time more immoral direction. In some phase, euthanasia shall be accepted as the worldwide as many other sinful matters, which first has risen to general conversation and as the conclusion the matter has accepted.

    Science of medicine should protect the life in every possible way and not kill a patient, even a patient wants it. In science of medicine pain relief is nowadays in a very high level by very effective palliative medicines. Science of medicine develops rabidly and patient who struggles with pain, and sufferings can get aid very soon and even cured completely.

    God can also heal deadly sick patient, and these kinds of cases are several. Euthanasia is the wrong and sinful decision, because healing can be ahead. We can never know what really happens to a patient, and he can be healed at any time. Euthanasia is sin against God.

    Many physicians have seen patients whom the Lord Jesus has healed. Whenever there is life left, so there is hope. Euthanasia is ethically wrong and sin before God.

    When our pets are in terrible pain and there is no cure, we put them to sleep. We end their suffering, yet we don't have the same compassion or respect for people?

    Years ago I worked in a nursing home. One of the patients was continually screaming in pain...all day, all night. It went on for years.....why should anyone have to suffer that?

    If I'm ever in that much pain and there is no hope, please kill me. There are many things worse than death and I'm sure God would forgive me and any person that helped me.

    Patients are allowed to commit assisted suicide in Finland every day.

    In another country, my father died an excrutiating death over six years, as cancer slowly choked him. The OP seems to have wanted my father to suffer, even as my father begged to released from his suffering.

    I thank God I live in a civilised country.

    It is sad that we can alleviate the pain and suffering of our pets but not our family.

    I am a man of strong faith, but I despise that some holyroller sets out to cause more suffering in those whose lives are nearing an end, and does so for what HE believes. Their beliefs and their wishes become irrelevant.

    Many people defend euthanasia saying that when we put down animal by the hands of physicians, so to people belongs to same rights by euthanasia.

    The Bible gives an answer to this. An animal is not morally responsible its life to God. God doesn't demand and require animal about his works, and for this reason putting down of an animal is acceptable in certain cases.

    A man is morally responsible for his life and works to God, and the Bible says that the birth and death of a man is at the hand of God. For this reason, a man's euthanasia is wrong and sin before God. Putting down of an animal and euthanasia of a man can't compare with each other.

    Euthanasia is a sin that takes away a chance to save to eternal life and euthanasia is rebellion against God, because it is God who must decide when is the time of the death of a man.

    Not everyone in Finland believes in God.

    So I suggest you follow the code of your religion - and allow me to follow mine.

    Two German scholars Karl Binding (jurist) and Alfred Hoche (psychiatrist) wrote 1920 the book called "Die Freigabe der Vernichtung Lebensunwerten Lebens" ("Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Living"), that set the ideological foundations for the Nazi program of extermination of disabled and incurably sick people.

    Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche proposed that the lives of the chronically ill or of the mentally and physically disabled were "unworthy of being lived," and should be given a "charitable death."

    Nazis' accomplished thoughts of Binding and Hoche by operation Action T4 (Aktion T4) during the second world war. Action T4 was Nazi Germany's euthanasia program that caused deaths of about 300,000 people. Part of them was condemned to death based on examination, in which they have diagnosed as incurably sick; some of them were mentally and physically disabled who were killed by medicine, starvation and in the gas chambers.

    1939 Adolf Hitler signed a back-dated "euthanasia decree" to 1 September 1939 which authorised Philippe Bouhler and Karl Brandt to carry out the programme of "euthanasia". Certain physicians, designated by name, so that patients who, on the basis of human judgment are considered incurable, can be granted mercy death.

    The present-day background of euthanasia is in terrible Nazi's ideology. People who allow euthanasia are ready at similar acts as Nazis did by their euthanasia program, in which they killed almost 300,000 people. Nowadays, euthanasia deaths are made by medicine, but the goal is the same as Nazis did when they killed sick people.

    The roots of the euthanasia are in Nazi's ideology. Difference between Nazis and modern-day euthanasia is that Nazis ordered people to be killed and nowadays people can choose the euthanasia.

    Nazis' euthanasia ideology based on there that certain people were unworthy of living and therefore, for them granted mercy death. In the modern-day euthanasia, people are also unworthy of living. People whom believed to be incurably sick are granted mercy death, because they are unworthy of continue living, because they are not useful to society; in a way thinks people who accept kill them. Modern-day euthanasia talks about ending of suffering by merciful death, but behind it is losing of human dignity and value, because they accept to kill people by the euthanasia.

    Science of medicine improves and may come better and can find new remedies to difficult diseases, and God can heal incurably sick people. When a man has human dignity and value, so all possible is done for the life, and no one have the right to kill another man. Modern-day euthanasia represents the same murder spirit what affected on Nazis'. Point of view that allows euthanasia shows that part of Nazis terrible acts are still alive in the form of euthanasia. The mankind has not forsaken Nazi's ideology, because they keep it alive allowing practicing of euthanasia.

    So you are claiming that God, in his infinite love, wants his children to suffer intense agony? And that relieving that agony dooms both the person relieved and the person helping, to an eternity of damnation??

    Sorry, its kinda hard to buy that bullshit.



    But since the US is not a theocracy, I'll take the route of love and mercy, even if you cannot.

    What a load of horse manure!! You are comparing the merciful end of suffering with the wholesale slaughter of hundreds of thousands of people??

    Euthanasia is alowing a person, who is already dying, to avoid the extreme pain and deep indignities, and end their life in a peaceful way. If you think that should be illegal and that it is somehow related to the niazs, you are a sick fool.
