KILLING OR SAVING Euthanasia involves the act of killing for reasons of mercy to the terminally ill and hopelessly injured It also means causing someone to die instead of allowing him or her to die naturally Two kinds of euthanasia exist active euthanasia in which a persons actions speed up the death of another person and passive euthanasia in which death occurs from inaction or the withholding of care Examples of euthanasia include disconnecting a patient from life support or giving a lethal injection Formerly known as mercy killing euthanasia has become a much-debated issue in society today Doctors must make decisions that would lead towards the patients best interest Euthanasia emancipates the patient from pain and lifts off heavy financial and emotional burdens from family members however euthanasia is immoral because rarely does it follow a decision both given freely by the patient and uncloyed by a doctors unethical and incompetent judgment People believe that the act of euthanasia would benefit both the patient and his family Many argue that keeping someone alive who is in unbearable pain totally helpless or brain dead is inhumanethe quality of life far outweighs any legal definition of death Euthanasia 11-10 They believe that patients should be able to die with dignity Patients should have the choice to go any way they choose Another issue to take into consideration is that families can spend all of their savings on prolonging the life of someone Euthanasia 11-10 The high cost of care can cause a family many duties to fulfill Not only do they have to endure watching their loved one die they also have to pay for it to continue Permitting euthanasia will allow these people to have one less burden to carry and focus on more important things Although these reasons support euthanasia many other issues must be taken into consideration when making a big decision like death Very often patients do not request euthanasia
