    The idea is the same as Euthanasia. Do you think she wants to suffer more? If she dies, the pain will end, her suffering will stop. Open up your eyes guys. No one knows what she feels like so please, dont say she gave up on her life.

    Who are they to take people's life? Suicide is a sin so what's the difference? Logically, it's the same, difference is that, other people will do it for you. I'm opposed to this.

    There's no much difference between suicide but if you are on the person's place, would you want to live and suffer more?

    No. Let it happen the natural way. It might hurt but at least, we are not affecting the natural cycle of how things should go

    At some point, i agree but it's life that we're talking about. How could someone do this?

    What if the patient doesn't really wanna die? Ofcourse, they can easily pull some lie to cover the patient's death stating that she had agreed with them

    yeah. the idea is the same as Euthanasia but the victim here is aware. Unlike Euthanasia, the victim isn't aware he's gonna die (although he or she is unconscious)

    She should've fight for her life even if there's no chance. For me, what she did is giving up.
