Physician-assisted suicide is a voluntary form of euthanasia that is currently being used in countries around the world, including the United States. Imagine being terminally ill, living one 's life bedridden and in excruciating pain while family and friends stand by watching the suffering day after day. In a situation like this, being given the option for euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide allows one to end their life with dignity in a safe and painless way. The intent of physician-assisted suicide is to grant people with the right to choose if they are in a proper state of health to continue to live, or if they want to end their suffering. I believe that everyone is in charge of their own life and body.
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.
Many have mentioned that in there scripts they believe that we can’t control our life. They think that it is unreligious and inhumane to be allowing people to take charge of their life instead of god. many religious believe that god will control our death may we like it or not. If euthanasia is legalized it will most likely be in con... ... middle of paper ... ... turn into a huge chaos of people dying. Sincerely this way for looking for a non suffering death is very inhumane.
It is hard to endure the pains and fight back to live. However, most people try to hold until the last moments. Euthanasia is nothing less than forcefully ending ones life. Euthanasia would just kill us in one second without second thoughts. 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.
Why should these people have to die in such a painful way if they do not want to? There are two forms of euthanasia; one is active euthanasia which is performing and action that directly causes someone to die, to many this is known as “mercy killing”. The second is passive euthanasia which is allowing a person to die by not doing something that would prolong life. This form of euthanasia is more widely accepted because there is nothing the doctor is giving the patient, the cause of death is the disease itself. 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?
It is one person doing something that directly kills another. If euthanasia was legalized it would only lead to abuse and erosion of health care for the most vulnerable people. Some activists say euthanasia would only be at a patient’s request and no one would be forced into dying. Although physical force is highly unlikely, emotional and psychological pressure could overpower someone feeling depressed or dependent on people. Much like in Brave New World when John, “the savage” kills himself because could not accept the life-style that the “super-society” wanted to impose on him.
Many people see death is a bad thing. People don’t like it and they don’t want to hear about it. For many seriously ill and vegetative patients, death is a good thing for them. Death will end their suffering from pains and they can also die with dignity. 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.
He couldn't eat or sleep, he just laid there, constantly in pain. There was nothing they could do as far as cancer treatment, because his body was too old and weak. So, he suffered for almost 2 months, while we all watched him suffer more and more everyday as he lay there dying. He stated many times how he just wanted to die and didn't want to live anymore. But, we (society) forced him to suffer.
In my o... ... middle of paper ... ...illness to die because of the emotional burden that succeeds death. By ending the life of the ill, you can no longer enjoy and spend time with the said loved one before their due time quickly approaches. The bottom line for these believers is that ending a life is playing the God role and even those who don’t believe in God believe nature must take its course. In the end, death is a concrete option for those who are suffering and do not see living life as an option any longer. Many see euthanasia as inhumane and religiously erroneous, but we must view this decision from the eyes of the suffering patient.
Euthanasia is the Best Option Euthanasia is a very controversial topic. People argue as to whether or not a person who is terminally ill, or handicap, should have the right to die by euthanasia. People say that dying by euthanasia is to die with dignity, instead of living an artificial life on respirators and other life support machines. If a person is terminally ill, and there is nothing anyone can do for them, why should they have to suffer? Not only do they suffer but their family does also.
