This morning you woke up and looked out the window the start of a new day. Normally we don’t focus on the fact that we are alive and healthy. We probably take our life for granted. But there will be one day where it will be our last day. Many would like this day to peaceful and without suffering. Now is it possible to control this? Many physicians have been debating about legalizing a drug that is used in ending the suffering of a patient. This drug is called euthanasia and its function is to give a “good” death. Now would this drug really give a better death than we would have naturally? Plus is it not ethically correct for the person to do that to themselves and what problems do you think the physician would have if they started prescribing this to the patients who asked for them? Who would determine if we can take euthanasia? Would it be us, the physician, government, god or any other intervention? I believe that there is a huge problem with this drug, and it is death. We cannot determine the future things may get better and the last day will come for everyone when it’s the right time for it.
The first problem with euthanasia is that it is morally incorrect for someone to kill another person even if they ask for it. As a person I feel that it is wrong to kill someone; yes in wars we do it all the time but even if a lot of people do that it still doesn’t mean it’s right. Many have mentioned that in there scripts they believe that we can’t control our life. They think that it is unreligious and inhumane to be allowing people to take charge of their life instead of god. many religious believe that god will control our death may we like it or not.
If euthanasia is legalized it will most likely be in controlled of the government due to the healthcare. Also it will affect the quality of Palliative Care that Patients receive. If you think about it euthanasia is much cheaper to produce than an extensive and expensive treatment on a patient. So maybe even the patient would just take this pill just because they can’t afford the treatment and wouldn’t want to put the burden on their family members. Not only that since the pill is new the government will probably give more funding to this pill and how to improve it than to actually improve technology to avoid taking this drug. All the money we spend on trying to make a pill to kill us we could have uses it to improve the quality of life of the patient even with the disease. So instead of advancing in technology to improve the quality of life for the future generation we are killing people. We are making our own natural selection killing the physically weak and the weak minded.
Look there are people who can’t even think, speak, or move for themselves how do you know if they are in pain. How do you know if that’s how they want their life to be taken away by a shot or pill? Yes you maybe the person in charge of them but they have the same right to live as all of us....
