Justified Euthanasia “How terrible it is to love something death can touch” (Albus Dumbledore), is something everyone questions to themselves. There is a great desire to avoid it, but death is inescapable. Death approaches over time or unexpectedly and happens to everyone. In hospitals, a patient’s chance of life can hang by a choice. Euthanasia, is common to families who have loved ones in an incurable condition facing the inevitable.
Have you ever imagined one of your loved ones suffering from a painful illness? Have you ever wanted that person to die and rest in peace? This is called Euthanasia, which means the termination of a patient’s life who is suffering from excruciating pain and a terminal disease. Euthanasia came from the Greek for good (“eu”) and death (“thanatos”) “good death”(Sklansky, (2001) p.5.) There are more than four types of euthanasia such as active euthanasia, which means that death is caused directly by another person by giving the patient a poisonous injection.
There are moral and honorable acts of war but often those must be ignored for the country to win, yet another reason why it destroys those who fight on the front lines. They are desensitized to death and brutal acts of war, the killing actively kills the innocence they have as people. If these men are not outright wounded then they come home, different people. The massive cost in the lives of those who fight in the war is evident by this. They either die the hero or live long enough to see themselves become unrecognizable to their loved ones and
Huttmann (2004) stated, “until there is legislation making it a criminal act to code a patient who has requested the right to die, we will all risk the same fate as Mac” (p.345). In that example Huttmann is trying to put the people in the same situation as Mac, basically she is asking the audience do they want to suffer like Mac or to rest in peace like what she did for Mac. This problem is controversial and it need to be stopped, because a lot of people have been suffering like Mac and they should have the choice to live or die. Huttmann stated in her essay that the doctors are trying to act “God” because they took away the ability to die as we please. (Barbara Huttmann ,2004).
Many people are not familiar with the word “Euthanasia”. When they hear or see this word, there are many questions to ask, like what does it mean, why do you do like that, for what? Euthanasia or mercy killing is a moral act done out of duty to those in suffering or an act for self-benefit under cover of morality or is it opening door to many illegal issues in the society. The term euthanasia is derived from the Greek word for "good death" and originally referred to as “intentional killing”. For example, a doctor who gave a patient with terminal cancer an overdose of muscle relaxants to end their life would be considered to have committed euthanasia.
Euthanasia If you had a terminal illness and were suffering daily, what would you like to do to change that? There is an easy solution to this problem, but most people look down upon it because they believe it is immoral. What I am talking about is euthanasia. Euthanasia should be allowed in these cases where a person is suffering and is probable to die soon. Forcing a terminally ill person to live when they would rather die than suffer is much more immoral than euthanizing them.
One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity. There are two reasons Curley wants to kill Lennie. The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys.
In passive euthanasia ill people dead by withholding of common treatment, such as antibiotics. In active euthanasia ill people dead by using lethal substances deliberately, such as lethal injection. Each type subdivided into 3 subordinate types, included voluntary, involuntary and non-voluntary. In voluntary euthanasia ill people initiatively request for their own death. Involuntary euthanasia ill people wants to live but is killed anyway.
As a result of rumors and revenge in Hamlet, self-murder is a consequence. For example,Gertrude and Ophelia, felt that suicide was the only way to escape the pain and craziness they experienced. When people kill themselves, they are not in their right state of mind. In the Hamlet Primary Source about self-murder,it states that suicide destroys the beauty of life each of us has,when the real the beauty of life could be on the other side when people have truly passed away. Ophelia is a clear example of this, she appeared to be crazy to everybody else,but is only misunderstood.
STOP THE KILLINGS! In the book Things Fall Apart written by Chinua Achebe,the theme is kill when need to kill. If not done so you will either regret it, have a great deal of guilt and/or can lead to suicide. Throughout the book Okonkwo did things he did not like which lead him up to his breaking point at the end. I will further explain more about the theme.
