PERSUASIVE Thesis number: even though euthanasia is illegal, it has advantages that are vital to any one society. Introduction Attention 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.
