One of our emotion that cause us the choose death or our life is fear, with fear in ourselves, we choice to make merciful decision. Although some form of euthanasia made be necessary, but by taking a life, even though it is for a good motive, we are not living as equal as we should have (according to god laws). Even if a doctor says that the patient can die, they have no rights to perform euthanasia because of the Hippocratic oath. Some may say that, people should have the right to choose whenever they live or die, but people will come to conclusion about their life due to outside influence such as peer pressure and medical
The argument of anti-euthanasia proponents is that euthanasia is immoral because life must be preserved and protected. However he preservation of life is subject to the self-determined choice of the person rather than the doctor 's choice. Like murder infringes on a person 's right to life by violate the element of choice in the persons death. Therefore a murderer will be executed because of taking away an innocent person’s life. For a physician to deny the person his right to die when under intense pain and suffering is effectively, imposing them to live a life without what they believe is their dignity, a life of suffering and eventual could be ended if the patient choose to do so.
The types of euthanasia are active, passive, voluntary, non-voluntary, involuntary, and indirect. Active Euthanasia is when a person directly and deliberately causes the patient’s death while passive euthanasia is when a person does not directly take the person’s life but allows death to happen. Voluntary euthanasia is when the patient requests to end his or her life while non voluntary euthanasia is when the person that will die does not make the decision but a appropriate person makes the decision on their behalf. Involuntary euthanasia is when a perso... ... middle of paper ... ...anasia and physician assisted suicide as morally wrong while proponents argue that it allows a person to die with dignity. My personal belief is that euthanasia and physician assisted suicide are almost always immoral.
Conversely euthanasia is not legal in Canada. Euthanasia, or physician assisted suicide, is the action of a doctor killing someone who has requested to die but is not able to complete the task of killing themselves on their own. The primary moral issue surrounding euthanasia is that the act of suicide now consists of more then one person, therefore it is no longer seen as killing oneself but that act of someone killing another. There are two types of euthanasia, passive and active. Although the general public does not recognize passive euthanasia as doctor assisted suicide it is still a form of euthanasia that is technically legal.
Voluntary Euthanasia is considered when practiced with the person’s expressed choice to die, while practiced against their desire is considered involuntary. Non-voluntary assisted suicide is practiced when the person being put to death is not capable of their thinking and making their choice due to the fact of being in coma or a severely ill infant. Each of these 3 types can be divided into 2 sub-types; active and passive. Active euthanasia is when the patient is killed, for instance by a lethal injection. Passive euthanasia is when the patient is allowed to die by disconnecting them from a medical life support to let their disease kill them.
Those who are unfamiliar with this process might say it is an unethical physician-aided suicide that is inhumane, or murder. Yet illogicality to continue the suffering of an individual when there is a more humane and less painful way for them is inhumane and unethical. Aside from passive and active euthanasia, there is voluntary and involuntary euthanasia (Medical). In voluntary euthanasia, the patient request to end his/her life or to stop a treatment with full knowledge of what is happening; which is most common. Involuntary euthanasia is why people see euthanasia as murder, inhumane, and unethical.
Also euthanasia has two procedural classifications, passive and active. Passive euthanasia involves withdrawal of life-prolonging treatments, whereas active euthanasia as well-known as mercy killing involves the use of force or lethal substance are used to end a patient’s life. Active euthanasia include life-ending actions conducted by the patient or somebody else. In short: euthanasia involves killing the patient to eliminate the pain while end-of-life care involves eliminating the pain so that the patient can die painlessly, from natural causes. Euthanasia is very controversial in the sense, many argued that it is assisted suicide and could be a cover for outright murder.
Instead of considering death for a loved one, focus on creating cures and being optimistic about the situation. In conclusion, euthanasia is a freedom of choice and people have their own personal reasons to do so but it is not a practice that should be legalized. It is morally incorrect due to the fact that it could be compared to murder, anything such as recovery and miracles can happen to the sufferer and it sends out a negative message to the society. It violates the nature and dignity of human beings and is a wrongful death because its is not just dying, it is killing. Oxford University defines euthanasia as "the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable disease or in an irreversible coma" but since when was "killing" ever an option?
Therefore, by not killing the patient, the physician and caregivers are causing suffering to that patient. In certain circumstance I would agree that the intention of the killing, for being to relieve suffering, absolves the physician or caregivers of guilt normally associated with the act of killing. ... ... middle of paper ... ...ing people to be killed instead of aiming to heal. Personal judgements regarding others choice to die of natural causes or to be euthanized should be reserved, especially if the patient is choosing to no longer be a burden on their loved ones because this too is a valid reason in some circumstance. 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.
Involuntary euthanasia takes place when an individual is killed to stop and suffering. In this case of euthanasia the individual is not asked about being killed even though the person is in a position to do so. The third type of euthanasia which is non-voluntary is the killing of someone who is not in a position to ask to die or live as for example the individual is in a coma, he/she cannot say or be asked whether the individual wants to live or not. Euthanasia can be taken further and split into two more types, passive and active. Active euthanasia is to end a life, for example by administrating a lethal injection; passive euthanasia is the termination of an individual's treatment.
