    It is morally acceptable to kill another person if they are threatening your life.
    It is morally acceptable to kill another person who is in extreme pain with a terminal illness and wishes not to continue to live but cannot terminate themselves.
    It is morally acceptable to kill another person should they have left statement, that if they should become unaware and incapable of coherent thought be the ravages of a desease such as alzheimer they do not want to live that way.
    It is morally acceptable to kill another person who is in a persistent and irreversable vegatative state.

    Yes, it's a joke, but also a genuine question that I have always wondered (this thread is perfect for this question):

    Can a thread stay on track, entirely following the instructions of the thread's author?

    I'll bite on this one, but it's always been an easy one for me: The only morally acceptable act of killing another person is in self-defense.

    I have a question:

    Why do some people find it morally acceptable to do the right thing for their pets by putting them down when life is no longer tolerable but cannot find the same compassion for the fellow human beings in the same condition?

    But seriously . . . I agree emphatically with Coachsparky. I think it is immoral to fail to end the suffering of a terminally ill patient, especially when he or she has expressed a desire that it be done.
