They may also think that a terminally ill person should not have the right to kill themselves and may argue that life, no matter how bad it is, what shape it is in, is worth living. Some believe that a cure for any given disease may be found in the next hour, or next day and to deny someone of that possibility would indeed be inhumane. Others may believe euthanasia cannot be regulated, and that it could be miss used for the benefit of the government in controlling the rising cost of health
If society accepts euthanasia, it will weaken society’s high view of life. Furthermore, if society allows euthanasia of a patient due to the economic considerations, do we not expect this same society to euthanize the mentally challenged and physically disabled. Euthanasia might just end up making society accept the notion that some lives are worth less than others; and that is unacceptable. It is argued that sometimes the motive behind euthanasia is “good” because it can end ones suffering. Nonetheless, euthanasia is not a good excuse to commit murder and take the life of an innocent human being, as there are other methods to help a person.
For instance, hematological malignancy can include symptoms such as fractured bones, recurring infections, and ongoing contusions. In reality, this patient would try in every possible way to fight the disease but once they hit a dead end, meeting death in a dignified manner would be the simple solution rather than to die in a hospital bed unrecognizable to even yourself. Once a patient is diagnosed with a terminal illness, life, as they know, it is hard to live. In many cases, euthanasia appears to be the more suitable answer. In my o... ... middle of paper ... ...illness to die because of the emotional burden that succeeds death.
Euthanasia traditionally means a “good death.” The term has traditionally been used to refer to the hastening of a suffering person’s death or “mercy killing.” The legalization of euthanasia is important for the patient because it would give dying people a choice to determine if they want to fight the disease or end their suffering. Since I strongly believe the quality of human life is far more important than the length of life, therefore I am for legalizing of euthanasia. The reason I am for legalizing of euthanasia is because I don’t like the feeling of pain. I don’t think anyone likes that feeling. I hate seeing other people suffering from all kind of diseases.
It could also be an economical way to save families and the government money, because euthanasia is cheaper than long term care. Therefore, euthanasia should be used because it could provide relief to the suffering person and their family. Every profession, and workplace stands by different ethical standards regarding their performances within the workplace. In the medical field euthanasia is a highly controversial topic. Some nurses would like to have euthanasia become legal and some are afraid to administer the lethal medication to very sick patients, because it may result in their death.
Euthanasia is a controversial issue in today's society. It is defined as the intentional ending of a life with the purpose of relieving pain or suffering. Many people believe that it is within a human's right to die a peaceful, dignified death with assistance. While others believe that euthanasia is an immoral act and that legalising the deliberate killing of humans will undermine the legal system in the UK. Currently in the UK, it is illegal for a doctor or another person to deliberately do something that causes the patient to die - e.g.
If euthanasia gets legalized patients with terminal illnesses would give up easy, they wouldn’t want to fight to see the outcome. Physician are there to help patients make it through there rough time not assist in ending patient’s lives. It is feared that euthanasia is the normal and the procedure of the physician will start abusing it. The aforementioned idea is also known as a slippery slope. Also, a miracle or a misdiagnosed might occur.
If he or she chooses to be euthanized after suffering from a terminal illness, then it is the medical staff’s responsibility to meet the patient’s request. The support of euthanasia is on the rise for doctors now days (Newfield). Medical staff believes it is against the Hippocratic Oath of killing patients, but the oath also states to do no harm to the patient which they are doing by allowing their illness to take over them (“Euthanasia”). Money spent on medication and attentive care for these terminally ill patients could be saved for patients who have a good chance at life or organs could be taken from one who does not wish to live and given to someone who does (Messerli). Imagine a relative suffering from a form of cancer and has a 70% chance of beating it and/or having a great chance of a normal, healthy life again.
When a person is suffering from a terminal illness or other end of life medical conditions, I believe palliative care professionals can assist these persons in alleviating their suffering without the need for the persons electing to consider any form of euthanasia. When the power to take life is taken into human hands, we can use it for evil purposes or misuse it. Someone might call a person with a disability not fit to live and choose to kill them. In addition, the elderly might not want to be a burden on their family and kill themselves. Euthanasia is a very dangerous slippery slope.
On the other hand, involuntary euthanasia is when the person is unable to decide for himself and so someone else, someone close decides for them. • Indirect Euthanasia: Indirect Euthanasia is providing such drugs which speed up the patient’s death. • Assisted suicide This usually refers to cases where the person who is going to die needs help to kill them and asks for it. It can be simply providing drugs to that person. What People is favor of Euthanasia say: The life of a person is their own will.
