EUTHANASIA2Euthanasia: Right to DieFor many, discussing end of life care can seem extremely morbid.The idea death usuallyinvolves feelings of suffering, pain, loneliness, and family left grieving and confused.If givenan incurable diagnosis with a limited amount of time to live, that ultimately has a negativesystemic response on the entire body, causing extreme pain and discomfort, should a planned andlegal method of death be permissible if performed by a legal physician authorized to do so?Euthanasia is a widely controversial topic that many have different opinions on.This paper iswritten to discuss the pro’s and benefits of euthanasia as it pertains to situations where patientswho are of age and cognitively able to do so, may make the decision to end their life in a waythat is morally, ethically, and legally agreed upon worldwide.Anyone over the age of 18 yearsold suffering from intolerable pain from an incurable diagnosis and given less than 6 months tolive benefit from having the choice to choose euthanasia as an outlet if they are cognitively ableto choose so.ContextEuthanasia is not a topic that is widely accepted or even acknowledged in many parts ofthe world.Some may say they have never even heard of the term or and if that are fond of it,they may associate the term with “physician assisted suicide”, because that is ultimately what theprocess of euthanasia involves.
