Physician-assisted suicide is a justifiable self-deliverance because it helps those in pain avoid dying miserably. No person wants to live in pain or die in pain and PAS gives patients the mercy of dying painlessly. According to Kim, PAS allows patients a speedy death in peace and dignity (170). The author asserts that for many patients the pain they endure is too much to bear. Forcing people to suffer is immoral (Kim 171).

Sarah Hughes English -102-13 November 1,2015 Mark Dudick To treat or not to treat Euthanasia/ physician assisted suicide is a hard topic to decide if you are for or against it. I would have to choose for because people with terminally ills should have the right to die if they want to or live. I believe that aid death has been around for a long time. for example, when someone is in a coma or vegetative stage and the doctor believe the best is to end their suffering , so they give the lethal injection or they will put a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) on the patient. I believe that pathos and logos going to be a big part of this topic.

Physician Assisted Suicide is morally wrong, gives doctors too much power, and it opens a door for those less critical patients to receive treatment too. "He started at a time when it was hardly talked about and got people thinking about the issue.” (Philip Nitschke, Exit International) The debate of Physician Assisted Suicide has been going on since over 2000 years ago during the development of Western medicine. There was a Hippocratic Oath taken by doctors to practice medicine honestly. It has been questioned whether Physician Assisted Suicide breaks that oath. Then, in the 1950s to 1990s Dr. Jack Kevorkian brought up the subject, and began the biggest debate upon the subject.
Euthanasia is legal in Washington only (Clarence H. Braddock, 2009). The thought of helping a patient who is suffering and they want to kill him or she is a very controversial topic as whether or not it is ethical for a doctor to end a person’s life. People who are against physician-assisted suicide feel that it is insulting God as well as murder. Others feel that it is a matter of choice. I feel very strongly that it is a matter of choice.
