I do support assisted dying, if its of the sort that exists in Oregon (the death with dignity act), it's not euthanasia per ce, but rather assists those who wish to die and repeatedly request and make that position known. Here in the UK both assisted suicide and euthanasia are illegal, though i think the political tide is turning in favour of assisted dying.
I read an article a few days ago, it said euthanasia is to become legal in the UK in max 2 yrs.
No, there's a private members bill from Lord Falconer regarding assisted dying which is going through various stages in the Commons and the House of lords, i think it's unlikely to become law-but you never know.
There is definitely public support for assisted dying and euthanasia in the UK, but that isn't being taken up politically-yet, though i think it will change.
Its' interesting that from a purely anthropological perspective how societies differ in their view, not just of euthanasia but also suicide. In the West,, our position has been greatly influenced by Catholicism, and i'm sure most people know they are anti suicide, in fact it's a sin and if i'm not mistaken punishable by an eternity in Hell. Interesting that this idea of suicide as a sin was actually incorporated into Catholicism as an interpretation of Aristotle's idea of the 'human tool'.
