When I was in highschool in my youthgroup ... our leader asked us the same question one day. And I, and most everyone else, said that euthanasia would be a good thing

and then our youthgroup said that this is how the nazi party started (don't know how true that is) ... but the general idea of disposing of the weak or flawed and how it can go horribly wrong in the wrong hands with the wrong minds

Really, I can see and understand both sides of the issue. On one level, humans are animals and like a cat that kills its kittens when something is wrong I think on some level it is primally instinctive for us to do the same BUT I also now that there are people who are disabled, even severely and how do we quantify severely?, that have been been wonderful and powerful blessings on their family, friends and the world. And to lose those souls would be a loss
