“Euthanasia is the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma”, (The New Oxford Dictionary of English). It derived in the early 17th century from two Greek words, ‘eu’ meaning well or good and ‘thanatos’ which means death. Therefore, when a person is subjected to euthanasia, their death is good. Euthanasia is categorized in three various ways, which include involuntary, non-voluntary and voluntary; each type can either be passive, when the patient is allowed to die or active, when the patient is killed. Voluntary Euthanasia should be legalized because it will end the suffering of the patients.
Have you ever imagined one of your loved ones suffering from a painful illness? Have you ever wanted that person to die and rest in peace? This is called Euthanasia, which means the termination of a patient’s life who is suffering from excruciating pain and a terminal disease. Euthanasia came from the Greek for good (“eu”) and death (“thanatos”) “good death”(Sklansky, (2001) p.5.) There are more than four types of euthanasia such as active euthanasia, which means that death is caused directly by another person by giving the patient a poisonous injection.
Legalizing physician assisted suicide can not only be a solution to the shortage of vital organs that are needed, but can also give terminally ill patients the opportunity to save another person’s life. According to a journal article written by Michael Cook, “Organ donation after euthanasia enables those who do not wish to remain alive to prolong the lives of those who do, (BioEdge). By giving patients who no longer have the will to live this option they are able to die knowing that they saved another person. Not only do they get this chance, but the organs recovered from them are more viable for transplants. This is because, with the preparation of death by physician assisted suicide, a doctor can save the healthy vital organs before they are left unviable.

Euthanasia or mercy killing both have the same meaning, which is stop the patient who will not recuperate from torment by using medical tools which are painless.

Euthanasia has been known for a long time, in world war two the German soldiers who got very serious injuries and mostly would not recover let die(2). Locally, the Republic of Ireland criminalized this action. While in some other countries, as, the United States have three states that legalized euthanasia are Oregon, Washington and Montana states.

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.
