Justifying The Right To Die Over the years the practice of physician-assisted suicide affectionately know as euthanasia has evolved into one of the biggest social issues in the United States and the world There have been many controversies over whether or not euthanasia is justified To some people in the United States euthanasia is considered murder while to others it is seen as completely understandable Life belongs to the one person living it The decision whether to end or continue that life is completely up to that one party If someone felt for very good reason that there was nothing left for them on earth but more pain and suffering there is no one who should legally be allowed to tell them they are wrong and force them on until natural death With the right steps taken and specific rules surrounding guided suicide making it a legal practice makes sense and is something this country should take serious steps towards looking into The argument is often made that if a person is in a lot of pain and has been suffering for quite a while their mental capacity to make a life or death decision is impaired For others who oppose euthanasia fear of a slippery slope would follow its legalization This means that once it is legal to do this the procedure may be taken advantage of and administered too often and for more selfish reasons either from the family or the health care professional And a third reason why many disagree with helping someone along the way to suicide would be the religious aspect of the procedure Some say it should be left into the hands of God to decide the fate of human being Taking a life is playing the role of God and is strongly opposed and sometimes equated with murderIf physician-assisted suicide was to be made legal before anything is done
