    If you had a loved one, or a relative who was terminally ill and suffering, with no prospect of recovery. Who had little or no quality of life left.

    Would you be willing to give the instruction or the authority for the Doctors to assist their passing. No matter what the law says, Doctors do this. Not just passively by removing life support systems, but actively by administering the appropriate level of drugs.

    I am not interested in the legality of the situation. That is a matter for lawyers to decide. I am interested in 2 things.

    1. Do you think that it is acceptable, in certain circumstances to do this.

    2. If so, would you be willing to be the person who made the decision.

    My answer to both questions is yes.

    Would take a brave and selfless person to do it.

    If I found myself capeable - I reckon I would. Big test though!

    Yes on both counts.

    And I&#39;m pretty sure I&#39;ve seen it happen.
    I can&#39;t think of any other reason to give morphine to someone who is unconcious.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
