There are plenty of people who’ve whipped cancer - even after they’ve been sent home to die. However, believing you can beat it will make all the difference in the world. My mother lost her ability to believe in herself, and nobody blames her.
This relates to the theme: death is a part of life, so we need to live our best lives each day because Peter’s daughter’s death was a part of his life, but it exposed and ruined him. In order for Hazel to live her best life she cannot give up because Gus is dead. Death and hardship is a part of being alive, so Hazel needs to be resilient through to keep grief from revealing her worst self. In conclusion, when Peter Van Houten speaks with Hazel and
One should do what is best at the patient’s request for humane, quick and painless dimes.” The above statement said by Dr. Jack is very true, as keeping people alive who are starving to death is inhumane. And what is the necessity to keep them alive against their wish though they had tolerated it since long and no improvements are resulted. The person suffering from this condition and his family members both have to suffer. Even their family members would wish that he might be relieved from this pain as they also cannot see their beloved ones suffering.
Halpanny and Newman 1998 wrote: In the final months of her life, Annie Lindsell’s struggle to be allowed to die with dignity became front page news, at the end of October 1997; she won a High Court action that allowed her doctor to administer potentially lethal pain-relieving drugs to prevent her from choking to death. This High Court victory opened up the debate on Euthanasia and the laws surrounding physician’s assisted suicide. Like Annie there are many people lying in our nation’s hospital simply waiting to die, since there are nothing humanly possible that can be done to save their lives.
“Death with dignity is a human right: to retain control until the very end and, if the quality of your life is too poor, to decide to end your suffering; the dignity comes from exercising the choice.” says Jason Barber, whose wife, Kathleen Barber, died in his arms. He had one question in mind when she died. What was he going to say if someone asked him how she died? Whether she went peacefully? He decided to tell people that his wife died in peace, without any pain or suffering.
As a new person is born something special has begun. It is the beginning of a life, a song, an inspiration, and a story. Kathleen Barber was struggling with a risky cancer and had died in a severe amount of pain and discomfort last December. Her husband, Jason Barber is a journalist and human rights advocate, he knew that his wife could have died a worse death, but also knew that she could’ve died a lot better one also (Barber). This term has various different ways for it to be known and defined, “physician-assisted suicide (PAS), "aid in dying", "death with dignity", "right to die", "compassionate death", "end-of-life choice”, and many different others.
But these are not thoughts befitting me; I will endeavor to resign myself cheerfully to death” (45). Before dying she reaffirms that she is happy to die for the Elizabeth’s happiness. Ironically she entrusts Elizabeth with her children and not her husband or Victor who are older. This action suggests that men alone are not able to nurture children. On the other hand, Victor is the perfect example of bad parenting, since he abandons his Creature and as a consequence causes the death of his family members.
I think that Mercy Killing should be made legal as long as the client has a very short life expectancy. Cancer patients are often given a rough estimate of when they are going to die which I don't think is fair for them and their families. Cancer patients after given their expected date to die are pretty much waiting to die instead of living their life like they usually do. If you gave people the option to end their life at a certain time it will take away a lot of the disappointment death brings.

In the Baby K’s case we all had very different answers, but all agreed that death should be allowed. The one consistent thing being that Baby K did not have any mental awareness. It seemed that there was similar points made about how she had no future.
At the age of twenty-nine, Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Mulitiforme, the most aggressive and lethal form of brain cancer (Griffin, 2014). She was given only six months to live and did not want to die in pain, but rather to die with dignity. She made the decision to exercise her “right to die” and chose to move to one of the five states that allows terminally ill patients the right to die with dignity. She moved from California to Oregon as Oregon is a state that has the “right to die” legislation (Griffin, 2014). She and her family had made it clear that during all this madness, it was reassuring to know that she would not have to suffer.
Julie has just been diagnosed with a terminal illness and she has been given less than six months to live. Although, Julie will suffer greatly for the rest of her life, some states refuse to legalize a law that would give her a choice of what she would prefer to do next. Denial of a person’s right to choose what they want to do next in their life is a denial of their freedom of choice. Death with Dignity is a law that deals with people that are over the age of eighteen, who are diagnosed with a terminal illness. This terminal illness must be an illness that is guaranteed to kill them, and they must be given six months or less to live.
