Typically I'm not used to thinking for other people who are unable to do so. But I'll make an exception for this case.
It is justified to end lives under certain conditions. These may include the following:
- Someone points a gun at a police officer. It is justified for the cop to kill the person with the gun.
- Someone is convicted of murder and is given the death penalty. It is justified for the person to be killed (although I don't support the death penalty, we have it in America as of now).
- Someone is brain-dead. It is justified to take the brain-dead person off life-support.
- If you consider a fetus to be alive, then abortion is justified under certain circumstances.
