i dont see what the big deal is? honestly would you rather have your mom who wants to die, die in a clean and painless way or come home and find her head blown off or her hanging by a rope in the kitchen? i think that it should be allowed, but the person must not have a mental retardation or something, and make the choice themselves. no one else can make the decision for them. if they are in a coma, too bad. you cant pull the plug. anyone elses views?
