Euthanasia, (from Greek: åõèáíáóßá -åõ, eu, "good", èÜíáôïò, thanatos, death),is the practice of terminating the life of a person or animal in a painless or minimally painful way in order to stop suffering or other undesired conditions in life.

So in fact it's just ending someone's misery.
The man could have lived for another month, but the cancer had gone too far. They performed euthanasia to end his life withoug further pain.

Euthanasia is know as a mercy kill to put someone out of their misery humanely sometimes inhumanely in the military without revealing their death wish to their chain of command, superiors.
Sergeant Kincaid and his platoon were creeping thru enemy terrain. Shots rang out and Machiavelli stepped on a land mine. Machiavelli body blew up into two pieces. While the fire fight was at it's Pinnacle Machiavelli begged his platoon member without advising the sergeant for a euthanasia lethal injection. Machiavelli was injected and died a quick death as per his death wish request by his platoon member in which he closed his eyes to show respect for the dead.

basically it's assisted suicide for those that can't do it themselves. Usually because they are suffering from a terminal illness. Commonly associated with Jack Kevorkian.
Stan: is it ok to kill somebody if they ask you to? Because they're in a lot of pain, you know, like assisted suicide? Is that OK?
