You or someone you love goes through unbearable suffering every day, caused by a terminal illness or incurable disease. There is no reason to go through such intolerable pain. You might think you will die with nothing left, not even your dignity, but contrary to popular belief, this is not true. There is a way to put a stop to the suffering. Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide are practices that have been around since the time of the Romans and Ancient Greeks (Euthanasia.procon.org,2016).
Life is never guaranteed and whether it is through an illness or an accident, we as humans are eventually going to die. Physicians Assisted suicide is one of the most controversial issues. The issue of doctor-assisted suicide has been the subject of the heated dispute in recent years. While some oppose the idea that a physician should aid in ending a life, others believe that physicians should be permitted in helping a patient to end his or her unbearable suffering when faced with a terminal illness.

I ended up being sent to our local hospital for a CT scan. That’s the day I learned that I really hate IV’s. I refused to even move my right arm in fear that it would poke something else. When the scan came back, they reported finding suspicious spots in the tumor (although at the time they thought it was just a cyst.) They referred me to the UK hospital that night.
The cause of Poe’s death is still widely debated today. Poe died of encephalitic rabies because of the likeness of Poe’s symptoms and those caused by rabies, Dr.Benitez backs his rabies theory up with irrefutable scientific evidence, also Pollin and Benedetto try to disprove the scientific evidence provided by Dr.Benitez with false information that portrays them as unreliable sources. Poe’s symptoms were very similar to those of rabies. Benitez says that Poe refused alcohol and could barely drink water: “Rabies victims frequently exhibit hydrophobia, or fear of water, because it is painful to swallow” (“Poe’s Death” 187). This statement by Benitez shows that he was hydrophobic and was not drinking anything.
The image that I get from the second part is that a person is on lying down a hospital bed with a heart monitor beside him. It is kind of a sad image that it gives me. In the third stanza the author describes the problem. In this stanza you understand what is happening. What I image is that this person who is lying on a hospital bed was doing drugs since the author wrote “with nicotine it's trembling”.
But they should not have the freedom to choose to end their own lives with the help of a physician. Such laws devalue human life. Medical diagnoses are often inaccurate, leaving people who have been told they will soon die, to sometimes live for many months or even years longer. It can also be argued that seriously ill people often suffer from undiagnosed depression or other mental illnesses that can impair their ability to make an informed decision. As Christian myself, physician assisted suicide goes against principles of the bible.
Many say that there was an alternate path that could have been taken to avoid the war, and they are correct, there were multiple ways to avoid both World War ll and the Holocaust, but humanity and society were blinded by fear and bloodthirst, they really are not to blame, it was the most brutal events in human history(Vail 9). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in
People should be able to live their life to the longest. Physician-assisted suicide is a controversial topic spreading throughout the United States due to the ethical issues surrounding the topic. Physician-assisted suicide is legal in a few states and other states have passed bills to make sure this does not happen. Even though some say that all have a right to die, physician-assisted suicide should not be legal because it would be too psychologically damaging to all involved.

At the bmx dirt finals Stephen Murray attempted a double backflip and landed on his neck breaking many of the vertebrae in his neck, this almost killed him. (Murray) “Stephen was transported to University of Maryland Medical Centre Shock Trauma Unit. He had flat lined in the ambulance and again after reaching Shock Trauma, where medication was administered to bring him back.

The accident left him paralyzed from the neck down, he had to spent a lot of time in the hospital and had a lot of obstacles to overcome.
Over time, there has always been a debate whether assisted suicide should be allowed into society. Physician assisted suicide can be looked at as an advantage, but it can also be viewed as a negative thing. Assisted suicide is only performed by a physician when the patient is terminally ill, and only if the patient is willing to be assisted in suicide. This procedure is used with lethal doses of drugs prescribed by a physician. Since physician assisted suicide is very risky, there are a lot of precautions to be taken.
Between the one hundred two-degree fever I had and the amount of blood they had to take out of me for tests, I felt miserable. Nothing there could comfort me. I was surrounded by white walls, and medical supplies in a room barely large enough for the bed and two chairs. This was before they built a new Children’s Hospital, though, which is filled with bright colors, beautiful murals with images of butterflies and flowers, and overall a more comfortable atmosphere. I remember lying in the hospital bed, under a thin sheet,
The Issue with Physician Assisted Suicide Physician-assisted suicide is the act of a physician prescribing a patient medication that allows the patient to kill themselves. Normally it is only given to patients with terminal illness, but the act of assisted suicide is on the rise for other diseases like depression. It is only legal in 5 states in America. Physician-assisted suicide should be made illegal across all states because it is offensive to social groups, causes doctors’ jobs to become more challenging, and it opposes patient freedom. The act of killing oneself is taboo in many different religions and social groups and is unacceptable.
