The legalization is due to the fact that euthanasia has many advantages.Specific purpose:the focus of the essay is to persuade individual citizens to join hands and pressurize the government to allow the practice of euthanasia.2
PERSUASIVEThesis number:even though euthanasia is illegal, it has advantages that are vital to any one society.IntroductionAttention getter:you seem to be wrong. How can euthanasia be allowed for practice when it claims lives of people? Don’t you know that killing is bad?Reason to listen:Thirty-six percent out of 1902 physicians would prefer to prescribe medication in order to hasten a patient's death if circumstances allow. 24% will administer a lethal injection to patients that request for euthanasia if the practice is legal (Meier, Emmons, Wallenstein, Quill, Morrison and Cassel 1998).Thesis statement:The argument is that all governments in the world should legalize the practice of euthanasia since humans have a choice to make over their lives in this democratic world. Euthanasia refers to the practice of ending the life of an individual deliberately if that person is suffering from a disease that is incurable so as to stop more suffering. That is merciful killing, which should be allowed as long as a patient requests a physician who have reasons that the patient is in deep pain and cannot recover.Credibility criteria:I have done a lot of research concerning euthanasia. From the research, I have found that it is ok to legalize this noble act.
