Name: Stephanie Mattes Date: June 5, 2006 Class: PHI1103 Word Count: 418 Title: Physician-Assisted Suicide Physician-assisted suicide is when a patient decides that if they are terminally ill and death will be painful and extreme, then the doctor actually helps the patient end their life. In my opinion, I think that there is nothing wrong with this. If I was in the last stages of an incurable cancer, and I began suffering greatly to stay alive, I would want my doctor to make the process easier on me and less painful. Keeping someone alive while they are suffering a slow death seems inhumane. People fear dying a slow painful death, and with physician-assisted suicide, there would be less worry about it. Also, by using physician-assisted suicide, it will help things economically. Doctors won’t have to keep people alive on expensive life support that is only going to keep them alive for a few weeks. These life support alternatives could also be used on people who have chance of survival after the life support.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
