Peter Singer,

agrees Euthanasia
Voluntary euthanasia occurs only when, to the best of medical knowledge, a person is suffering from an incurable and painful or extremely distressing condition. In these circumstances one cannot say that to choose to die quickly is obviously irrational.

Owen Jones, Columnist for the Guardian and the New Statesmen
