I think everyone who is suffering whether it be physically or mentally should have the right.

I read the whole article, and agree with a lot of it. I can see that if someone's brain is working properly and they are able to think rationally and have, say, an incurable physical illness, they should be able to make the decision to die. However, my suicide attempts were made when my brain wasn't working at all rationally, and now I am in respite I definitely want to live. I can't help feeling that those with mental illness, even though they might have a strong death wish, should not be given euthanasia. This is just my humble opinion, and I know there are lots of people who think differently.

I believe it should be offered, but well scrutinised

we should have the same right as animals (end of suffering humanely)

But a certain clinic recently has been found to be practicing unethically and using dodgy Drs.
