I believe that the law should be changed to allow active euthanasia because it is a persons freedom to determine their time of death if given the opportunity This paper will discuss what it is like to lose a person through a painful death and how the good consequences of legalizing active euthanasia outweigh the bad consequences It will further examine the moral permissibility and the question of adopting social policy that sanctions active euthanasiaWatching a person suffer from a terminal painful disease is one of the worst experiences I ever went through My grandmother had stomach cancer and was diagnosed too late to even attempt to save her She lay in a hospital bed for the last three months of her life not knowing when her last day would come only waiting for the pain killers to take effect She could not eat any food because the cancer would eat anything she put in her stomach so along with dying of cancer she was starving to death She died a week before my birthday after months of pain I only went to visit her once because just looking at her frail frame hurt she wasnt the same grandma I had all my life and she just looked so tired and in so much pain The night before she died she told one of her friends that she could not fight anymore the next morning the fight endedIf active euthanasia were an option then my grandma would not have had to suffer as much as she did She would not have had to go all those weeks in extreme pain she would have been able to take a lethal dose of medication and could have died peacefully and quietly with all her dignity in hand There are so many good consequences to legalizing active euthanasia and in my opinion they outweigh the bad consequences Self-determination or autonomy plays a crucial role in ones life Self-determination
