Doctors or patients should not use that as an excuse to go through with PAS. Kaveny says, “…they have argued that PAS would be just the first step down a slippery slope” (1), which is very true because the faults that will come along with PAS will eventually cause the downfall of our health system.
Sincerely this way for looking for a non suffering death is very inhumane. Euthanasia is a very non-ethical especially for the physicians who have to medicate this and watch this happen to their patients. How would you feel watching people die more and more quickly each day because of this drug? It must be heartbreaking especially if you studied to try to save people’s lives. We should try to fix a problem instead of creating new ones with euthanasia.
Where will all the mess ups or unsuccessful clones remain at? All of this will cause the world to be overly populated, just in case they do not discard a human clone afterwards. It does not make any sense to me to clone a human if they exist or existed already. Many mistakes need to happen in order to get cloned the right way like: malformation, stillborn, or dying immediately after birth. The thought of performing the procedure over and over multiple times does not help the human mind and the society we are in.
Cheating is never the answer and that is not fair for the other athletes that do not take performance-enhancing drugs. The side effects can be harmful to the human body and it can eventually lead to death. Not taking performance-enhancing drugs will reduce the chances for them to get sick. Instead of taking the easy route to succeed, play fair by not using performance-enhancing drugs.
Assisted suicide is unethical because it takes away the value of a human life, it is murder, and it opens the door for coercion of the elderly and terminally ill to seek an untimely and premature death. Despite the common people’s beliefs, assisted suicide is wrong and shouldn’t be legalized. One of the main reasons assisted suicide should not be considered for legalization is the fact that it reduces the value of a human life. If this act becomes legal, many people who are sick are going to begin believing that because they are ill, their life is not worth living anymore. This alone i... ... middle of paper ... ... J.
The desire for suicide would result in failure of several doctors to adequately relieve pain and emotional suffering as death approaches. The technology of today has brought and is still bringing new cures everyday. PAS would lead to more “Doctor Deaths: in this world, which certainly is not necessary.
They go on further to make an analogy with starving children . This analogy does not hold, as the reason that assisted suicide is pursued is to relieve suffering, and is unrelated to the “value” that human life has. Finally, they argue that allowing assisted suicide will cause people to be pressured into committing suicide . This is an extremely weak argument. By this logic, a lot of things should be forbidden: for example, alcohol will be forbidden because allowing it will mean that people will be pressured into drinking.
Imagine life where hospitals do not treat people to save their lives, but kill people for their illnesses because someone determines whether their lives are worth living or not. Society argues that it is the right choice, but when put in the situation directly, it is much harder. Once a life is gone, it is gone. It is not a little decision to make. Literally a life changing choice.
Cloning would also lessen the worth of an individual and diminish the respect for life. If humans feel they can be replaced, like that of an object, then disposing of a human life would come at no great cost to their conscious. Resulting in perhaps a killing spree that would have no type of harsh punshment. As it stands, it is difficult to lose one loved one, but the thought of losing several would be a disaster. Match has launched a second opposition party called CATCH (Coalition Against The Cloning of Humans).
Euthanasia is also seen as impractical because the medicine and technology needed to hold the issue at bay is readily available. If proper palliative care were offered then euthanasia would be unnecessary and there would not be any patients asking for euthanasia. It is also seen as impractical because there is no way to properly regulate the process, and doctors would have too much power.
