I feel that Herbert Hendin did an ok job in his persuasive essay. I feel that he did a good job stating facts but I am not completely sure what I am being persuaded for. Hendin begins by discussing the history and defection of the word euthanasia and how it means painless, happy, death. Then Hendin continues on about compassion for suffering patients and respect for their autonomy. After this I believe he begins his idea that because doctors are not popular trained that it could go wrong and the patient could end up worse. He discusses that in the how in Netherlands this practice is legal. Hendin does a good job relaying to the reader that in the Netherlands where it is legal that there has been many instance where the doctor preformed this practice without the patient’s permission. After reading the entire essay the only thing that I feel is that if assisted suicide is legal that the doctors need to be properly trained on it. The doctors also need to be held responsible and it should have steps to ensure that it is in fact what the patient does want. I feel over all that the essay does not open well to let you know that it is an essay against assisted suicide. I also feel that the facts do not paint a clear picture on why it should be illegal they only show that it should be controlled and supervised.

    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.
