Needless suffering will continue in the US if the laws are not changed to reflect the current changes in medical care. The first argument for euthanasia is that commit suicide should be legal in general because there are people who’s being treated for so long and there’s nothing that could heal them to live longer. Why shouldn’t they allow the patients to choose their lives? So in order for them not to suffer they should have the permission from a doctor to commit suicide. It’s painful for those who wants to end their lives, but it’s more painful if
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.
First, society would begin to allow the killing of the terminally ill, then the pain and sufferers next, the el... ... middle of paper ... ...ir sons or daughter die. Thus, it is disrespect for the patients to decide to end their lives. Euthanasia will always be an argument with perspectives from both sides. There will always be people with terminal illnesses and with pain and suffering. The fact that doctor's are here to help people and help them continue to live is a good reason to ban euthanasia and to keep it illegal.
Besides, some doctors might then choose the shortest way out, helping people die instead of helping them recover. Although some of what opponents say makes sense, they don't see euthanasia from the eyes of a patient and they undermine the rights of every person. A terminally ill person wants to end their life in a dignified manner. It would be cruel and inhumane to force a person to stay alive when they want to avoid excruciating pain. Not let people ask for euthanasia goes against freedom.
While many people feel that euthanasia is murder, infant euthanasia should be legalized to spare terminally ill newborns of long, painful deaths, and to spare them of possible life-long disabilities. Euthanasia is said to be morally wrong by pro-life groups. They point out that infant's may not be suffering while they are dying. They also emphasize that advances in pain management make it possible to relieve all or almost all pain. These people say that children should be saved at all costs, no matter how great the disability may be.
Euthanasia should be legalize in the United States because it gives an alternative for people who suffer every day due to a terminal illness, but it should be the last resort a patient should take. People who are against euthanasia claim that it is unethical and morally wrong to take someone’s life away. According to the article “Active Euthanasia Is Never Morally Justified,” euthanasia is a nice word that replaces the word murder (Doug). The author claims that people will use “terminal illness” to murder people without their consent. People that are on a vegetable state and cannot depend of themselves are force to accept the decisions of others.
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.
This quote exemplifies the fact that many people who are being kept alive suffer not only physically, but emotionally as well. People choose euthanasia because it allows them to free themselves of the unnecessary pain that they must endure. They we... ... middle of paper ... ... have proved their cases on why it should be legalized yet it still continues to be morally questioned on a daily basis. There has been a recent outcry by people who are sick and dying as they find Euthanasia as their only option. Whether it is a bout with a terminal illness or an unfortunate accident that has caused paralysis, Euthanasia can end the unnecessary suffering of many and allow people to die with dignity.
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.
Medicine should be focusing on improving lives, rather then giving the option of ending them so easily. The option of assisted suicides and euthanasia should be outlawed which will cause people to seek other ways around their discomforts. Death should not be the answer to unhappiness, and the acts of assisted suicides should be unavailable to everyone. If an individual’s will to die is so strong, nature will take its course and fate will choose the path. Works Cited Chevlen, Eric.
