Not really okay with involuntary euthanasia (aka death penalty), or people with mental issues wanting to die because there is a lot of grey area there and lots of mental issues can be managed to the point where a person can have a healthy life.
I think ore or less the same. No to the Death Penalty on those grounds, unless there are extraordinary circumstances. I do think that people dying of horrible terminal illnesses have the right to choose to either fight out the pain or save themselves from more torment.
