I think euthanasia should not be legalized because if someone is paralyzed (or have a dangerous disease) and they are highly depended for almost everything it is much better to die rather than living in such hopeless way. No one likes being depended so the only way of escaping from this situation is euthanasia.
Euthanasia would be a great help for people who are in such hopeless conditions so for this reason I think it should not be legalized.

Euthanasia should be legalised for people in appropriate mental condition. For example, a murderer rotting in a prison cell begging for death should not get it, but a person in extreme pain who cannot abide it and will certainly die soon anyway could perhaps request it. However it should be a complicated and protected method, just to ensure mistakes don't happen. And it also should not be given if there is even a slight hope of survival.
And it DEFINITELY shouldn't be given to animals! It's not like anyone asks for their opinion! It's cruel!

The subject fo euthenasia is a hard topic. I agree that it is a person's right to do what they feel with teir right, however, some christians argue that our life is not ours but God's. Suicide is legal and so you could argue that euthenasia should e to. However, what if someone were wealthy and ill and their child wanted them dead to inherrit their money? legal euthenasia would allow the child to kill the parent without any questions asked, even if they did not want to die. This is where euthenasia causes problems. The key issue is that different people place different values on life, one we legalise euthenasia, it could leasd to all sorts of other things being legalised which could cause us even more problems

I think it's okay if the person is in extreme pain with a terminal disease and has no hope of recovery, however the problem is that if it is legalised some people may be pressured into it, especially if they have greedy or selfish relatives who want their money or can't be bothered to care for them.
