[quote:1k64phpj]Euthanasia comes from the Latin words which mean “good” and “death”.[/quote:1k64phpj]

Actually, we can say it’s [i:1k64phpj]via[/i:1k64phpj] Latin from two greek words meaning good ([i:1k64phpj]eu[/i:1k64phpj]) and death ([i:1k64phpj]thanatos[/i:1k64phpj]). Were it Latin it would be something like [i:1k64phpj]bonamors[/i:1k64phpj]. <img decoding=” title=”Wink” />

Now, I have one question: what about those people who are in a permanent vegetative state and whose lives are only kept by machines, are we still bound to keep them alive?
