She made a difference in other people’s lives that are going to the same feelings she was. Her actions opened doors for many people, despite their beliefs. “Supporters of assisted suicide often cite pain as a primary reason why people should have the legal right to die”(Wilson). People with incurable and painful diseases should be able to end their suffering in states where it’s legal to do so. No one else has stake in the decision to die with dignity.
Euthanasia means “a good death” and “dying well”. A good death means dying with peaceful, painless, lucid and loved ones gathering around. Euthanasia defined as the termination of ill people’s life aim to reduce suffering from incurable and painful disease. Euthanasia classify into two major types, included passive and active. In passive euthanasia ill people dead by withholding of common treatment, such as antibiotics.
For these patients, their death is rapidly approaching and for the vast majority of them, it will be a slow and agonizing experience. However, there is hope of a peaceful death for these patients that exists in a controversial law being considered by many states throughout the country. It is known as the Death with Dignity Act. This law gives terminally ill patients the option of ending their own life in a painless manner at a time and place of their choosing by
“Was It Illegal for Doctors to Take Cells from Henrietta Lacks Without her Consent?” How can you take cells from a human being and treat them as clothes that you’re just selling. In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot told the story of the woman behind the famous cell line and the fact that her family did not know about Lacks’ immortal cells until more than 20 years after her death. Some believe it was legal to take Mrs. Lacks cells, while others disagree and say it’s illegal. It was definitely illegal for the doctors and scientist to take Henrietta’s cells without her consent.
If someone falls into a comma and there is a chance he or she will wake up, the relatives often decide to pull the plug rather than wait to see a response from the patient. And when a patient suffers a painful terminal disease and asks specifically to be killed mercifully and peacefully, their wish cannot be granted because that is an alleged violation of human rights. It is supposed murder. To be true and not let slip of any otherwise different opinion, I will say that euthanasia is murder. And that is exactly what confuses the majority of the world.
Death is viewed, mostly, as a bad thing. This is because a life is being taken from people who love the dying person. But in this book, it seems to be that Mitch Albom is shedding a light on as to why death is a happy thing. Death brought Mitch and Morrie back together. Death gave Mitch hope to live a happy life.
Hunter Blalock Mr N Bradsher English IV Honors Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. What about Death? Chronic diseases affect approximately 133 million Americans each year (National Health Council 1). Even more, are mortally wounded. All of these patients will most likely have to endure unnecessary pain and suffer a horrible end.
At that age, when I heard of the word cancer, I automatically thought of the word death. They told me she had a cancer that was called Multiple Myleoma, which would weaken her bones. But what devastated me even more was that she was already on stage 3 of her cancer. I did not want to believe the news. I just couldn’t accept it.
When we see human in pain and there is no meaning of letting him/her live more, we may do something and let them die peacefully by stop supporting their body to live, and save their dignity. Letting them live for longer time means, making patients and their families suffer for a longer period of time (4), whilst, euthanasia could be the best choice for patients to let go, and for other patients who needs organs-transplant to help them maintain a normal life. To illustrate, donating organs from people who are brain-dead could save many people’s life by donating their organs to who in-need. Unfortunately, brain dead people can be confusing, especially for families who have to deal with the sudden demise of somebody they cherish on the grounds that a brain dead person on a ventilator can feel warm to the touch and can look "alive." The heart is as yet beating and the ventilator is pushing oxygen and air into the lungs making the person's midsection moves, if the breathing machines facilitate the ventilation mechanism, which means no one will wake up after having brain death(5).Donating from brain-dead people could means save thousands of lives around the world.
Do you assent that people who encounter some fatal diseases and do not want to endure pain can have voluntary euthanasia? Voluntary euthanasia, the practice of a hopelessly ailing and suffering person asking for terminating the life in a relatively rapid and painless manner, has been the most controversial moot point that spawns numerous discussions in the recent few decades. I propose that voluntary euthanasia should be legalized so that anyone who struggles for the desperate disease can have the right of practicing voluntary euthanasia. Every individual has liberty and is an autonomous person with the right to self-sufficiency and independence. The right to choose is underlying and employs to all elements of “human life,” so each individual has the right to elect the circumstance of the own death.
