Euthanasia is to help patients who despair and cannot be cured to die peacefully and to have free from suffering. Tulloch Gail from Edinburgh University Press said that Euthanasia can be categorized in two respects. First, if patients have requests for medical help injection for themselves, it is called Voluntary Euthanasia and did not a request from patients, it called Involuntary Euthanasia.

He was not allowed to hang out with his friends either. Which meant his time with Fiona and Asher were going to be shorter..Another reason that Jonas has the punishment of being the receiver of memory “2.
In addition, if the patient who wishes to die by euthanasia is an organ donator and the organs are healthy, the organs can save several lives. When a person is terminally ill and has a communicable disease, the longer they are kept alive, the risk of others being affected by the disease increases. Once the individual chooses to die, it would help prevent the transfer of the illness they have to others, especially to other ill people.
