I agree with the fact that Euthanasia should not be legalized because of several reasons. Firstly, Euthanasia could be seen as murder to the first degree, because you are killing someone intentionally. Secondly, I do not believe we have the power, nor should we be able to end someone life just because we should have much more respect for human life. Thirdly, are we a God in which we can give and take life.

I believe everything has it's own purpose and value on this Earth. Although a person may be as useless as a paperweight and choose that they want to die. I strongly believe that this person still has a purpose to live, and could be impacting a lot of lives in a way that we may not know about by dying or living.

No matter how bad the situation is, it is how we make of it, which is the most important thing.

It can be looked on with the eyes of either good or evil.

I personally think that all doctors, who assist in euthanasia, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for murder. All doctors should know better than to do this, and they did not go to law school for so many years just to solve their problem's by killing their patients.

But what I feel most strongly about is that we are not God, nor anything immortal. All human's are mortal's and do not have the power choose whether to live or die. This is all up to God, and it is all up to God's own timing.

Therefore, in conclusion, I think euthanasia to any extent is wrong because humans do not have the responsibility, nor should we to end other human's life.
