GENRE : DISCUSSION Euthanasia; Pros and Cons
  GENRE : DISCUSSION Euthanasia; Pros and Cons Euthanasia comes from the Greek language and means “good death” . Another word for euthanasia is “mercy killing”. In the past years there has been much discussion about euthanasia all over the world. Those who agree with euthanasia argue that everyone has a right to decide when their life should end.   People are given a large degree of autonomy within their lives and since deciding to end their life does not physically harm anyone else, it should be within their rights to decide when they wish to die. Beside that, nowadays hospitals are overcrowded and have too many patients. Some argue that they should let those die that do not have a chance of living on. In that way, there could be more room for patients with diseases that can be cured. A further point they make is that the cases of unbearable pain as reasons for euthanasia. Euthanasia is often be the choice when the quality of  person’s  life has become so  bad or a person may feel too much physical or emotional pain. However, there are also strong arguments against this point of view. Some people argue that Euthanasia would have a damaging effect on society. Some people who do not agree with euthanasia argue that if it was legalized, it would damage the moral and social foundation of society by removing the traditional principle that a person should not kill and reduce the respect for human life. Furthermore they claim that humanitarians and the religious amongst them believe that mercy killing or euthanasia is morally wrong. They  believe that only God has the right to end life because only he was responsible for the same. Lastly, some people who do not agree with euthanasia argue that it would violate doctors' Hippocratic oath. As a result of this controversy, I think that everyone have their right to decide when they wish to die. Hen_dr@ Distributed by :
