Fatalists have no problem with euthanasia because, if you are euthanized, that is when you were slated to die anyway… unless you weren’t, then you can’t… it’s really quite simple… total acceptance of everything that is happening to people who aren’t you.
If you are Catholic, euthanasia is considered suicide and a deadly sin… so, for appearances sake, you might want to struggle a little when it is time to put the needle in.
Dogs are man’s best friend so we euthanize them a lot. Sometimes because they are very sick, sometimes because they chewed up a nice leather couch. The main reason scientists don’t try to figure out the intricate canine language is because we really don’t want their input on it.
We also euthanize criminals who have committed acts so heinous that we cannot live with themselves.
Euthanasia is sometimes referred to as “assisted suicide”; whereas, murder is sometimes referred to as “involuntary assisted suicide”…
If you opt for euthanasia, make sure your doctor is well-read on the most recent techniques and has access to the newest drugs. Because, if he’s just going to use an axe or a hammer, you can get your wife or kids to do that and save thousands of dollars.
If your euthanasia doctor sterilizes his needle before putting it into your arm, that is a good sign that he isn’t sure of himself.
Euthanasia will become legal in Maine in the year 2020 because it’s only a little worse than living there.

Dr. Jack Kavorkian was convicted of second degree murder for helping someone euthanize himself. It was determined that some of the people he’d helped kill themselves weren’t even in pain and one just wanted to die because she’d failed to tape the last episode of Newhart. Kavorkian is paroled in 2007, on the condition that he not kill anyone… pretty much the same thing they ask of all parolees…
