The physician gets to be the helpless person's medical guide because he or she is trusted to hold the patient's good uppermost, and the patient's good does not include death. This argument has not been put forward publicly or seriously by any government or health authority. When healing is no longer possible, when death is imminent and patients find their suffering unbearable, then the physician's role should shift from healing to relieving suffering in accord with the patient's wishes. Euthanasia allows them to set the date, thus providing them an opportunity to prepare themselves for what is to come and better cope with the situation.
We should reject laws that legalize the practice. There is also a political and philosophical objection that says that our individual right to autonomy against the state must be balanced against the need to make the sanctity of life an important, intrinsic, abstract value of the state. America has very few states with legislation on the books: Oregon enacted in 1997, Washington 2008. Sometimes a terminal illness is so painful that it causes life to be an unbearable burden; death can represent a relief of intolerable pain. In the recent case of Terri Schiavo, a woman from who suffered from and had been in a kind of coma since 1990, her husband succeeded in getting her feeding tube removed. Additionally, dying people who are considering euthanasia can also choose the day they want the act to be done.
Voluntary euthanasia was approved in some ancient societies. This is called assisted suicide.

We are able to choose all kinds of things in life from who we marry to what kind of work we do and I think when one comes to the end of one's life, whether you have a terminal illness or whether you're elderly, you should have a choice about what happens to you.
An End To Suffering People that are living with a terminal illness, or that are in an irreversible coma, are suffering. In states that have legalized assisted suicide, in fact, most patients request the lethal drugs not due to pain or even fear of future pain , but due to concerns like 'loss of dignity' and 'becoming a burden on others' — attitudes that these laws encourage.

At the same time health resources are being used on people who cannot be cured, and who, for their own reasons, would prefer not to continue living. Palliative care and rehabilitation centers are better alternatives to help disabled or patients approaching death live a pain-free and better life.
If insurers deny, or even delay, approval of costlier life-saving alternatives, then money saving but fatal measures become the deadly default.
