SURVEY REPORT Your final survey report should include the following elements: A. Introduction to the survey topic - what makes this issue controversial? Assisted suicide is a very high controversial issue. While some view it as a moral issue that goes against medical ethnics and religious beliefs, others view it as an individual rights and worry more about money than moral beliefs. Assisted Suicide encompasses three main issues: Deliberately causing the death of a terminally ill person. Giving them the means to end life. Withholding or withdrawing medical life support B. Research presenting both sides of the issue The question is, “Should a terminally ill patient be able to commit assisted suicide?” That question is what made assisted suicide a very high controversial issue because there is never going to be an agreed answer.
