Allowing this would also grant families the opportunity for a proper final goodbye with those whom they love. Assisted Suicide would end the everlasting pain for patients with physical illnesses who consent, and don’t want to suffer anymore. Medication can only do so much and living life in pain every single day isn’t worth it to certain people. I don’t support Assisted Suicide when there are mental illnesses involved because they don’t have a real view at how life is, and while they won’t obtain that, they might prefer life

As many of us know, the basic unit of society is the family, that´s why we must encourage others to enjoy the balance brought through mutual respect and support. However, among the mixture of feelings expressed along the novel, perseverance is one of the few values that completely pushes us out of poverty; just like Gatsby overcame himself. The greatest message from Fitzgerald is that we should consider how society is currently and how is can change in the future. Scott Fitzgerald was gifted with the opportunity of experiencing a transition from a World War to a period of great joy and comfort.
I think he could have relied heavily on non-maleficence in a strict sense of the term that doctor should not do any harm. Also, throughout all four cases I believed that we relied heavily on taking into account how the family would be affected by the decision, which shows a utilitarian perspective. I also, noticed that when it came down to the final decisions autonomy of the patient was not always respected by all three of us, such as the car accident victim. She wanted death, but we all denied her because we were worried about her mental health. Although with autonomy we should have still respected her wishes, if we were solly basing our decision on
Love is essential to overcoming adversity and it is the ability to cause change in yourself and others. In the book, Matched by Ally Condie, Cassia has to learn to be able to have independence and accept that she needs to break away from her society’s choices.

Ultimately, Condie teaches us that love causes and solves problems, but those problems are the ones that you want to choose.
This theme of always being acted upon by the circle of life affected Douglas and his actions greatly with many instances showing how Douglas wanted to turn away from death and change and look only to the positives of life.

The ideas behind this moral distinction is that in passive euthanasia the doctors are not actively killing anyone but they are just not saving the patients. Most people think that euthanasia can be justifiable, when the patients are facing incurable disease, undergoing suffer, terminally ill and requests for euthanasia as their last wishes. For instance, Somerville (2010) argued that it is important to respect the people’s right of self-determination and autonomy. In other words, people should have the right to choose their time of dying but the state have prevented and stop them from doing it.

The Lee’s wanted to do half western medicine as well as half traditional healing to try to get Lia’s soul to return, but they were unhappy with the side effects from the prescribed medications.
As a matter of fact, “Christianity believes that switching off life-support machines of brain-dead people is not wrong because it alleviates suffering so it is compassionate” (Argument for euthanasia, 2013). Although euthanasia is not universally approved, it remains as a common option for patients and their families. How terrible it is for those who get left behind. When people are faced with brutal dilemmas,
Support: Eric Thomas, the author of the book ‘The Secret to Success’, once said about success that whatever paths taking us to success, at some point we all have to go through the boulevard of hard work. Example: If you want to achieve success, hard work and dedication are the second element after explicit plans. In addition, we had better take responsibility for our tasks. None can help us to fulfil our targets but ourselves, hence learning to bear responsibility is very essential.
“Life is a series of pulls back and forth” (40). It seems that everything in life has its counterpart. On the same day a new mother welcomes her baby into the world, a daughter stands at her mother’s funeral wishing her into the next world. Morrie speaks of this unceasing “Tension of opposites” (40) one day on the college campus with Albom.

As they talk, Morrie gives Mitch messages throughout their Tuesdays to teach Mitch the important things in life. There are many themes Morrie gives Mitch throughout the book.

Terminally ill patients lose control over so many aspects of their lives, in many ways physician-assisted death gives them back some of the control they lost. Illness is not discriminatory. Therefore, people of all ages and backgrounds are diagnosed with things like cancer, kidney failure, and heart disease every day. Also, for anyone who is unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with any terminal illness, it can feel like their disease controls every aspect of their lives and they have no choice in the matter. Authors for the Journal of the American Society on Aging Lee Combs and Grube describe how persistent pain took control of a young woman named Brittany Maynard’s life, “Even after undergoing a sophisticated surgery and numerous cancer treatments,

That is what Morrie had to go through and although he is dying he wishes to teach people how to live. In the memoir Tuesdays with Morrie, Morrie teaches people to live life through showing emotions, forgiving others and not having regret. One thing Morrie teaches is that showing emotion does not have to be a bad thing. Morrie was always a touchy feely guy.
