Yes 100% if regulated correctly.
No mentally fit person should be forced to live a life they don't want to, they have the right to their own life and should be able to die peacefully if they wish.
A few necessary regulations.
- Must be a 2 year process (or something)
- The person must pass all mental health tests.
- It must happen through a GP or medical professional who has known the patient for a while.
- The person must kill themselves ie: drink their own poison.
I also feel people who are "brain dead" should be helped to die after a time period or if someone is in severe pain but can no longer ask for Euthanasia because of their disease or illness.
The latter can be a slippy slope though.
The only issue is family members pressuring older, less mentally strong people into doing it to inherit their money, or so they don't have to look after them.
I done this stuff a few years ago in school in RMPS (religious, moral, philosophical, social) , remember the basics of what I decided at the time.
