It has the minds of society wondering if death solves some of the most extreme medical problems. If a patient finds himself or herself terminally ill and in excruciating pain, they should have the option to partake in assisted suicide to end their misery. Some insights support Euthanasia and some reject the concept. This issue is important to society because people want the right to end their lives when facing terminal, or life threatening, illnesses. In my opinion, certain forms of euthanasia should be considered legal.
If euthanasia became legalized then it would ruin the future by letting the all ill patients die without letting them to say goodbye to their family or our close people. We all are valuable and no one’s life should be sacrificed. Legalized euthanasia would not be beneficial in the long run because people may be asked to volunteer to die, doctors would give up on their patients and it will ruin the future of medical advancement. Pressure could kill some people and abuse them. Especially, someone who is weakened by ill.
Needless suffering will continue in the US if the laws are not changed to reflect the current changes in medical care. The first argument for euthanasia is that commit suicide should be legal in general because there are people who’s being treated for so long and there’s nothing that could heal them to live longer. Why shouldn’t they allow the patients to choose their lives? So in order for them not to suffer they should have the permission from a doctor to commit suicide. It’s painful for those who wants to end their lives, but it’s more painful if
They want abortion to be illegal whether the woman wants one or not. Even though some say that having an abortion is killing an innocent baby and that it brings on many problems later in life, many pregnant women are not ready to have a child and some just do not want kids and they should have the right to get an abortion. If abortion was made illegal many would turn to “back-alley abortions” which are done in unsafe ways and it could result in more fatalities. It is common for anti-choicer to claim that having an abortion can lead to many complications in the future. Some say that having an abortion if you have been pregnant before increases the chances of breast cancer significantly but research found that this was not true.
People also choose Euthanasia as a means to ending their life because they feel that can no longer live their lives the way the want to. Finally, people use Euthanasia to end their lives because they feel that only machines and medication are keeping them alive and that they have truly died inside. A careful and close analysis of this topic and a review of some quotes taken from a major motion picture on this subject will show that Euthanasia should be legalized, and implemented in our palliative care system today. The word Euthanasia can be a taboo in the medical care system today. Many medical practitioners dismiss euthanasia as an option to treatment and it is illegal in all 12 Canadian provinces.
The doctors have tried to keep Christina’s pain under control, but with all the medicine the slightest touch feels like razor blades scraping her skin. Being a terminal patient is rather difficult to come to terms with, leaving unpaid bills behind, losing bodily control, and having family watch them die a slow painful death. Incidentally Christiana does not live in one of the four states that offer Physician Assisted Suicide. Physician Assisted Suicide should be legalized in all states because it is a freedom of choice, ceases one’s pain and suffering and decreases traditional suicide rates. Physician Assisted Suicide is a freedom of choice.
Euthanasia is a better choice for terminal patients than suicide. In our society, suicide is always traumatic for families and friends. If there is no alternative to relieve the suffering of terminal patients, then the more humane option to suicide is euthanasia. An option for people that are unsure of euthanasia is called DNR or do not resuscitate(McCuen 2). This means that if the patient has a heart attack or another potentially fatal problem in the hospital, the doctors are told to preform a " No Code" which means that they should let the patient die peacefully with any amount of painkillers or medication requested by the patient(McCuen 3).
These infants, incapable of making their own decisions, deserve to be spared the pain and suffering of such severe diseases and illnesses. Although some claim that euthanasia is the killing of a human, infant euthanasia should be legalized to spare severely ill babies of drawn-out, excruciating deaths, and to spare them of the possible defects from their illnesses. Infants continue to be born with such disabling illnesses daily. Many parents are left burdened throughout their lifetimes. They may not be prepared to provide the round-the-clock treatment that is needed.
The patient expects death, and any treatment is not going to do any good to the person. People who have this illness resort to an alternative called euthanasia. Euthanasia is when someone a physician or a family members assist the terminal ill to die by injecting such person with a drug or plugging out the chord that keeps the person alive. While supporters of this technique claim that euthanasia is humane and helpful, other people argue that euthanasia is morally wrong, and inhumane. Euthanasia should be legalize in the United States because it gives an alternative for people who suffer every day due to a terminal illness, but it should be the last resort a patient should take.
But why not give a patient, who has stopped treatment and is having a painful death, a life ending drug if the patient requests it? A person has the right to die in a way they want that is what autonomy is all about, the right to self-determination. Why should we prolong an agonizing death if we can make it faster? In Diane’s case it is clear that she never wanted the treatment for leukemia which is okay as long as a doctor counsels her to see if it’s not just the fear that is making her not want ... ... middle of paper ... ...s no other option and that it isn’t some other disease. Dr. Quill did the right thing in giving Diane the sleeping pills, in a situation like hers, having control seems like such an important thing.
