When does the government have the right to tell a person how they can live their life More and more this issue has come in to the public eye Everything from freedom of speech to abortion has been brought up in this debate I myself am a bit confused when it comes to where my rights stop and the governments starts but I do know that everyone should have the right to decide when and how they die One of the biggest controversies of this decade is euthanasia Euthanasia is inducing the painless death of a person for reasons assumed to be merciful Euthanasia itself has been around since the early Greek and Roman civilizations Over the years though mainly because religion increased and life was viewed as sacred euthanasia has come to be look at as a bad thing But that was not the case for all Organizations supporting the legalization of voluntary euthanasia were established in Great Britain in 1935 and in the United States in 1938 They have gained some public support but so far they have been unable to achieve their goal in either nation In the last few decades Western laws against passive and voluntary euthanasia have slowly been easedalthough serious moral and legal questions still exist1 There are for types of euthanasia voluntary and direct voluntary but indirect direct but involuntary and indirect and involuntary Voluntary but direct euthanasia is chosen in advance Direct but involuntary is done for the patient without his or her request Indirect and involuntary is when the hospital decides to pull the plug on life support And Voluntary and direct is chosen and carried out by the patient Patients are allowed to choose passive euthanasia but can not choose active euthanasia Passive euthanasia is when nothing is done to prevent death Active euthanasia is when one deliberately causes death The last form or euthanasia is the one that has come under the most fire
