Yes. Unlike other suicides that we hear on news televisions, euthanasia is a type of suicide that is assisted. Moreover, euthanasia is common for critically ill individual or those who have been in a long state of irreversible coma. Family members usually decides to painlessly end the life of their love ones out of mercy especially for those patients who have been suffering in a painful condition. Although it may seem difficult for them to let their love ones go, the fact that they will end the suffering of their patients is somehow a relief of their grief.
