Euthanasia was practiced by the Nazis.I’m pretty sure they also brushed their teeth and drove cars.The problem with it is the “slippery slope” question:Who should die? Who decides when it’s okay to kill another person? How can pain or suffering be quednifian?Dot’t be so shallow.What does this have to do with a person deciding that he/she wants to die? The “slippery slope” doesn’t exist.
