Poll: Seven in 10 Americans back euthanasia

Americans have consistently maintained their support for euthanasia in recent decades. Prior to that, as far back as 1947, Americans were not in favor.

Although religious convictions often play a large role in one’s support or opposition, the way the act of euthanasia is worded affects Americans’ views on it, underscoring the issue’s sensitivity. Life-ending scenarios are real for many Americans and their loved ones. And while the majority of Americans clearly support euthanasia — a fairly rare moral issue for which there is widespread support — that support is not unanimous. This is a reminder that these divisions play out in family decision-making every day.
