Moral Problems – Professor Speetzen 2/13/2012 Euthanasia argument – Velleman 1. People are morally entitled to refuse treatment because they have a right not to be drugged, punctured or irradiated against their wills. 2. Giving the option to some patients can do more harm than good. 3. People might kill themselves because they feel others are sick of them or just should not live on for no real reason. 4. Options can be undesirable because they subject one to pressure. 5. This option denies people the possibility of staying alive by default. 6. It will change people’s perception. 7. People will continually be justifying everything they do. 8. Killing one’s self can be seen as an obligation because they are a burden on their loved ones and see their decision to kill themselves as a “gift” to them. 9. If all of these things are true then physician-assisted suicide should not be a legal option. 10. Therefore, physician-assisted suicide should not be a legal option.

    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.
