I've been thinking and was wondering wether euthanasia is really assisted suicide. I don't think it is. I may not know enough about it but the people who are being euthanized are terminally ill and they would be dead (or very quickly dying) anyway if it weren't for the drugs keeping them alive and in some cases in a vegetative state. Euthanasia is basically just allowing nature to take over, allowing the person to die, but with no pain. Why should anyone force the terminally ill patient to suffer any longer than necessary if there time has already come but their suffering is being prolonged for no real reason by modern medicine?

If I got something wrong here, please no personal attacks, just let me know.
