The purpose of the research was to examine the relationship between attitudes toward euthanasia and perceived social support. The study also identified gender differences and their attitude towards social support. It was a cross-sectional correlation research. The sample size was 200, and the data was collected from a general population of male and female university students through a questionnaire of Attitudes Towards Euthanasia-ATE and Perceived Social Support-PSS along with an informed consent form and a demographic sheet. The study significantly highlighted a negative correlation between ATE and PSS. It predicted that social support would be stronger, and people would receive it from family members to maintain their lives instead of terminating it. Social support was a primary source to help the patients mitigate their attitude towards euthanasia. Due to gender differences, the women received less social support, and the score on the scale of attitude toward euthanasia differs among men and women. Society, parents, family, and other peer members should be supportive to help the patient maintain their life and daily functioning.
