There are many different reasons why people would want to euthanize someone, but here are just a few of them. The reasons are – to put themselves out of the misery of their terminal illness, as they only see physical and emotional pain in their future because some rules are better than none, human beings have the right to die how and when they want to because sometimes a life is just not worth living anymore and euthanasia may be necessary for the fair distribution of health resources. One acting on their own violation, with their right mind should be able to make a decision on how they live and die without a government or religious group interfere. Euthanasia should be
When the patient is terminally ill and is in a lot of pain they should be able to end their own life instead of waiting for it to end itself. Even though some argue that physician assisted suicide is not a humane way of dying it still stops the patient´s suffering and gives them peace of mind. Assisted suicide has been a debate for many years, and
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 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.
Thus, according to these people, suicide is in principle morally permissible. For health care workers, the issue of the right to die is most prominent when a patient in their care is terminally ill, is in intense pain, and voluntarily chooses to end their life to escape prolonged suffering. In these cases, there are several theoretical options open to the health care worker. First, the worker can ignore the patient's request and care can continue as usual. Second, the worker can discontinue providing life-sustaining treatment to the patient, and thus allow him to die more quickly.
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?
Is the Hippocratic Oath really there to provide patients with the best care they can get from their physicians? Lastly is the right to die, the debate on whether a patient has the right to decide to death. So, should someone who has been condemned to death have to continue to live and suffer until the end of their days arrives? The fact that euthanasia is illegal and kept illegal supports that idea. Euthanasia should be legalized; it would eliminate the pain and suffering of many people who suffer from terminal diseases.
Untimely Death Death, is it okay to let a suffering person die, or should doctors give them a lethal injection to end their suffering? Many people have different views on this situation, but I believe that it is the patients decision because the patient knows how much pain they are in, and if they can not take it any longer. In the essay "Active and Passive Euthanasia" James Rachels wrote that he thinks that it is a better choice morally to withdraw life support, and let a person die, rather than ending a persons life through other means. I do not believe that if a patient is about to die, and that patient makes a request to withhold treatment that the doctor should withhold it. To me that is going to make the patient suffer even more than he already is, so I believe that the doctor should either continue giving the patient their treatment, or ask if they would like to have their life terminated with a lethal infection.
They think that they have nothing else to live for, but it is just a stage that they are going through. There are certain factors that are dangerous and lead people to end their lives. There are people that want euthanasia to be legalized but they do not understand the consequences that come with that legalization. Once euthanasia is legalized vulnerable patients could be talked into suicide and doctors could take that decision for them. Euthanasia should not be an easy way out to get rid of a patient’s pain.
We all die in an innumerable amount of ways and our autonomous decision to choose Active Euthanasia or PAS should be respected as should our choice to refuse euthanasia. The act of killing a patient, who has chosen to have a quick death, in my opinion, does not have the same ethical implications as letting a patient die when that patient can no longer bear living. I conclude that it is usually better to kill a patient if their life has become unbearable and they foresee no recovery of an acceptable quality of life, rather than to prolong the life which is unwanted.
