    Actually it is legal in oregon, it's called the death with dignity act. I think about 400 people have used it so far. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_...th_Dignity_Act

    It also looks like washington has passed a similar law in 2008 but im not sure if anybody has used it yet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washing...th_Dignity_Act

    From state legal euthenasia varies This is why I feel one should have a good lawyer to handle the legalities .
    I know on the west coast it is more open about it and it can help end ones suffering .

    Just thinking I forget if seattle does it ...
    IMOP it should be legalized in whole country because usually no one wants to suffer ..

    Agreed and passionately so. I'm angered at assholes against any infringements on a person's decision to die.

    Unfortunately one must be terminally ill. Not just suffering.

    It is legal in Holland. But I have heard too many stories about it so I am negative. I don't like the idea that the society should think we are only a burden and should feel it was better we killed ourself. It reminds me of Hitler who killed one million disable people together with the Jew, gypsies and homosexuals.
    I think if people are suffering and somebody help them, they should not be punished. But it is dangerous if it is legal so all the disable people should feel it was expected that they did it.
