Is euthanasia selfish as like most suicides?

Websters Dictionary defines euthanasia as: the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy. The questions people often ask are should euthanasia be permitted or legal? Is euthanasia selfish as like most suicides? Whos choice should it be? This is a topic with no real answer, but it is only based on peoples beliefs and or opinions. As for my opinion, I believe that euthanasia should be allowed and legalized, with some stipulations. I believe that to receive euthanasia you must be a legal adult, be of sound mind, be medically proven to be eligible, and if you are unable to make these decisions family and doctors will make it for you. As you read, I will give examples along with my opinion on why euthanasia should be legalized. For the first example, man in his mid-sixties contracts a disease. Doctors tell he and his family that he has only a small chance of living more than five years. The man is constantly in extraordinary pain and doctors say there is nothing that they can do, and that the pain will never go away. The man no longer wants to live, for the pain is too excruciating, but his family wants to keep him alive. In this case I believe that euthanasia is a rational choice, because the person in pain no longer wants to live, and because he is a legal adult, he should have that option. If for some reason the man was unable to make a rational decision, I believe that his family would have to make the decision for him. If a person no longer has the will to live and they are in pain, why should they not have the choice to medically end their life? Next is a child that is diagnosed with a degenerative muscle disorder. Doctors told his parents that he will have no use of his arms or legs and would not likely live past the age of fifteen. He will also be bedridden and will have little brain activity…
