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.
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.
The patient expects death, and any treatment is not going to do any good to the person. People who have this illness resort to an alternative called euthanasia. Euthanasia is when someone a physician or a family members assist the terminal ill to die by injecting such person with a drug or plugging out the chord that keeps the person alive. While supporters of this technique claim that euthanasia is humane and helpful, other people argue that euthanasia is morally wrong, and inhumane. 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.
(Allen 15). It is obviously a violation of the oath when doctors aid in the death of their patients. They do not help the patients pr... ... middle of paper ... ...h the disease. Doctors or patients should not use that as an excuse to go through with PAS. Kaveny says, “…they have argued that PAS would be just the first step down a slippery slope” (1), which is very true because the faults that will come along with PAS will eventually cause the downfall of our health system.
Because life and death were giving to us by God, euthanasia goes against his wishes. If they practice in the act of euthanasia because of their beliefs they would be committing a sin and end up going to hell. (Yip,2009,p.1) Now those doctors can prolong life for people who are terminally ill, suffering or just elderly, by using certain machines, euthanasia has become a big debate. With many groups for euthanasia, such as pro-euthanasia and the right-to-die, are debating that euthanasia be legalized. With all these different view towards euthanasia, should North American consider changing its law to legalize it?
There is nothing morally wrong with this idea.

Involuntary euthanasia will increase and soon doctors will terminate patients without permission to save money and free up beds for other patients.Euthanasia also gives a wrong message that its better to be dead than sick or disabled ,it also says that human beings have no value. Both sides have strong points backing them up.Deciding what is ethical is still a dilemma for some but from what i’ve always believed euthanasia to be ethical and this research just deepens my beliefs. In conclusion, when a patient chooses euthanasia to end its misery, everyone should respect his decision.Euthanasia is a temporary solution because no one can reduce the pain of losing someone but it is not the worst solution.Euthanasia is not the true solution to suffering.But its the best we have.
They believe that legalizing euthanasia would encourage health professionals to abandon their empathy and compassion, and consider ending patients’ lives as just a routine administrative task. Individuals who use this argument often forget that morality is not originated from law, and to think that a doctor would prefer ‘killing off’ patients rather than saving their lives would imply that doctors only try to save patients because they’re getting paid to do so. Individuals who favor this argument also believe that people with complex health needs or those with disabilities might grow distrusting of their doctors, which is another fallacy since it can only be true if we assumed that a doctor sees other humans as customers or job tasks instead of seeing them as human
When many people think of it in this light they begin to think on how a physician assisted death is more of an homicide rather than a health practice. In the next paragraph, I fight the term that the writer of the editorial uses for terminally ill persons. I find that any person with a disease that prolongs their health that can be considered terminally ill and can be liable to euthanasia. Lastly, I use the U.S. Constitution as a means for rights of its citizens. And find that nowhere to be seen is the right to die.
Euthanasia is the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering of any individual from an incurable disease. People who are against euthanasia believe that any individual suffering from an incurable disease should not be given the ability to end their suffering. According to Sherif Emil, “Legalizing euthanasia can become a slippery slope” (Emil). In other word, euthanasia will open the doors to those that will mistreat it and will cause a great amount of increase in deaths. But many for euthanasia would certainly take issue with the argument that it will not be a slippery slope but, that it will give the right to end the life of a terminal ill patient who is going to die a painful death.
In this paper I have argued that: Health professionals should aim to improve health and suffering and not kill because it becomes overbearing, If hospitals had good palliative care then euthanasia wouldn’t be necessary, A patient who is in the process of dying isn’t in the right state of mind to make a decision such as ending their life, If euthanasia becomes legal, it doesn’t allow research to find cures for chronic illnesses, Euthanasia gives too much power to the doctors, Euthanasia destroys societal respect for life, and Giving the doctors this much power essentially leads to a variation of murder. Therefore, it is morally wrong for someone to kill a person; even it is on medical terms.
