Colleen Figg, columnist for News24 wrote an opinion piece called 'Where is the mercy?', relating to euthanasia. In her commentary she relates a story of an old couple under great suffering due to the old man being in a wheelchair and in great pain. As a result she feels this man should have the choice of killing himself.
I wrote a blog post in 2005 on the issue of euthanasia. It may not cover all issues in that post, but it is a start. The post is called "Killing people using euphemisms."
Figg's last statement is: "If we are not truly our brother's keeper, then what is our purpose on this earth?" In my opinion, if I am my brother's keeper, I am supposed to keep him, not kill him!
