Yes, but lethal injection shouldn't be the means if that means a doctor is needed to give the injection. 4 years ago from a Green in Lake Mary, FL
No, but the penalty for the patient convicted of attempting to do so should be death by lethal injection. 4 years ago from a Republican in Morrisville, NC
They should be able to get help ending their lives in as easy a way as possible, whether lethal injection or the use of drugs. 4 years ago from a Green in Galveston, TX
Yes, but only if there is zero chance of recovery and if they are in a stable mental state. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Tallahassee, FL
Yes, if tax dollars or insurance funds are not used to pay for the procedure and therefore involve other people in a highly sensitive, personal decision. 4 years ago from a Green in Raleigh, NC
As long as the person is 110% sure this is what they want, once you do it you can't change your mind. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Belleville, IL
My opinion is driven by religious beliefs, so my answer is no, but I am still uncomfortable with prolonging life artificially, when prognosis reveals no chance of recovery. 4 years ago from a Republican in Fort Huachuca, AZ
I don't like this question. It's none of the governments business one way or the other. What do you plan to euthanize the elderly? On the other hand each person owns their own life. 4 years ago from a Libertarian in Philadelphia, PA
Each will to live has its own limits and should not be in the hands of others. 4 years ago from a Republican in Springfield, MO

It's up to the individual, not the federal or state gov't. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Syracuse, NY
They should be able to end their lives, but by more methods than strictly lethal injection. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Chattanooga, TN
There is a point when what life remaining is nothing but pain and there is no meaningful communications with family; just emotional pain and awaiting for the patient's pain to end with death. It would be much easier to administer a lethal injection... 4 years ago from a Republican in Newport News, VA
I firmly believe that anyone that decides to end their life (terminally ill or otherwise) should have that choice. Who are we to decide someone's fate? As long as they don't take anyone with them it should be THEIR choice. Not the Government or... 4 years ago from a Democrat in Rochester, NY
Yes, only if there is zero chance of recovery and they undergo a psychological evaluation to determine they are mentally stable and sound. 4 years ago from a Republican in Darlington, SC
Suicide in the fact of terminal illness is a personal choice and a valid option. "Assisted suicide" is an oxymoron. 4 years ago from a Republican in Lake Charles, LA
My position incorporates all of the last three alternatives -- psychological screening both at the time a declaration is made of intent in advance and again at the time the decision is to be invoked; only in cases when 2 competent medical authorities have... 4 years ago from a Republican in Bowie, MD
I believe each individual has a right to die with dignity. I believe they have a right to end their own suffering when that is all that is left for them and their family. The option of how best to do that is up to them. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Milligan College, TN
