This shows that people understand and sympathize with the pain a loved one can feel. It is for the reasons above that I believe that euthanasia should be legalized under the premise that the patient must have terrible quality of life and be suffering from a terminal illness and that a physician will administer the injection under the direction of two other physicians as to stop the possibility of misdiagnoses. I also believe that a person who has been in a coma or on life support but still has no chance of survival also have the right to euthanasia. Euthanasia is a hotly debated topic as it can make someone questions their deepest belief into what they believe is the meaning of living.
Euthanasia Euthanasia is a though that ponders in the mind of many everyday. Is it right, is it wrong, who can decide the value of a person's life? Euthanasia is an option that many sick and dying people consider everyday. Euthanasia can be a sick person's only escape from a life of torment and suffering where they are waiting to die. 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.
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.
Keown (2002) comments that the main hindrance to the allowing of euthanasia has proved to be the objection that, even if they were morally acceptable in certain 'hard cases ', voluntary euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide could not be effectively controlled; society would slide down a 'slippery slope ' to the killing of patients who did not make a free and informed request, or for whom palliative care would have offered an alternative. But that would not be the case as the process for choosing euthanasia is an extensive and thorough examination of the patient. According to Sikora and Lewins (2007) terminally ill people can have their quality of life severely damaged by physical conditions such as incontinence, nausea and vomiting,
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.
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.
A lot of people argue that patients are clinically insane to choose Euthanasia; those individuals who want to die are not in their right mind and they are not capable of making the decisions rationally due to the pain and stress they constantly undergo. Pro - Euthanasia people argue if patients are still sane, they must have the right to choose between life and death. It is inhumane to allow a patient to die slow and painful death while elements of independence slowly escape them. It also can be argued against that religious people tend to oppose euthanasia. They see that life is too precious and it should not be taken away from other people.
Euthanasia, and a common form of euthanasia, assisted suicide, should be legal processes through which terminally-ill patients may voluntarily end his or her own life. Essentially, euthanasia is having a patient sign a waiver agreeing to allow a doctor inject them with toxic fluids that will end suffering and allow people to have a dignified quiet death. This suicidal method is meant only for patients with terminal illnesses. That is, diseases that will eventually kill you, or that cause terrific pain and suffering without killing you anytime soon. Euthanasia has been an extremely controversial topic over the
What makes the right to die different from physician administered suicide. This contributes to the issue of humane death distinguished from humane killing. Patients could be essentially be “euthanized” on the regular. These deaths now take place in hospitals which makes it highly cost ineffective, some fear that if they are dying care will decrease in quality. Withdrawal of treatment or pain relief in lethal measures is the concern for the unethicality, some see this as an alternative to long-term care.
( http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/hp.asp) The reason Physician Assisted Suicide (or PAS) is an important issue in this country and around the world is that there are many people out there suffering from debilitating, incurable and intensely painful diseases that would like to end their lives with dignity and without suffering. (Leo & Lein, 2010, The Value of a Planned Death) There are a few key terms that may help you understand the issue better, as I explained above the term Euthanasia is Greek and means “good death”. There are different kinds of euthanasia, passive and active. Passive Euthanasia is when a doctor may without medical treatment that will result in a patient’s death, such discontinuing a feeding tube or having a do not resuscitate order. Active Euthanasia is taking specific steps to end a patient’s... ... middle of paper ... ...ent dies.
