Depression is strong feelings of sadness and dejection. When a person is going through depression in grief, the person will always seem down. That person will never see good things that are going on. People are normally too focused on the bad thing that just happened to feel anything else. When someone loses a loved one, that person will go through depression.
This is why euthanasia in specific physician-assisted suicide is causing a worldwide argument. Advocates want to legalize it for people with incurable diseases because of the suffering, lack of patience and financial problem they and their families face during the treatment. On the other hand opponents say it is just a fancy word for murder. That is why euthanasia must not be legalized because it is against basic religious beliefs, basic tenets of medicine and ethically it is still considered as a
Black market drugs are not the only drugs to worry about, drugs used in euthanasia and assisted suicide are just as dangerous (to society). Euthanasia is the act of a medical professional terminating someone’s life. Assisted suicide is when someone provides the patient with the means for death. For example, a doctor placing a lethal dose of a drug on a bedside table and the patient ingesting it them self is assisted suicide since the patient performs the final act. If a physician were to inject the patient with a lethal drug, then it would be euthanasia since the physician is performing the final act (Marker and Hamlon).
In addition, the fear of death can lead a person to depression such as Brittany Maynard. She was unhappy at the fact that she couldn 't enjoy her life as she used too. Maynard felt as if her world was falling apart because each day the cancer would worsen. She couldn 't live
One question that most people ask about this subject is: Does euthanasia devalue life? The answer is yes it does. As most already know, euthanasia is a form of suicide. Most people who commit suicide suffer from mental illnesses and should not have the immediate option of using the procedure as a painless death. It lowers the potential of that person’s life as they look towards euthanasia as an escape plan.
The right to die: Cons Many people with a mental disorder feel it is unfair to make assisted suicide a right to only the fatally ill. They feel it is their right to have a way out if their disorder worsens. Mental disorders can affect your mood, behavior and ability to make sound decision in times of an episode. In the Netherlands assisted suicide became legal in 2002. At first assisted suicide was available only to those with a terminal illness.
This can make a reader feel like they are buying into societal norms, and that it is not okay with humans doing such thing since it is not always right. Ryan then explains how the death penalty is not fair to everyone, murderer that some get sentenced to death row and some do not. He questions if this penalty is really meant for closure he states “Some advocate the death penalty as necessary to provide needed closure to surviving family members who have experienced the unspeakable horror of having a loved family member murdered” (Ryan) Closure is something that is to given to every family as he explains, that many murders are not sentenced to death
Keeping euthanasia outlawed regulates religion, aids morality, and supports physicians’ ethics. Euthanasia is killing a patient painlessly for medical reasons, even sometimes given without a request from the patient, such as being in a coma. Euthanasia goes against peoples’ one right to life. Some think it is ok because it supposedly helps the patient, but is it realistically helping? There should be so many other options for patients to choose from, instead of thinking death is respectable choice.
Euthanasia If you had a terminal illness and were suffering daily, what would you like to do to change that? There is an easy solution to this problem, but most people look down upon it because they believe it is immoral. What I am talking about is euthanasia. Euthanasia should be allowed in these cases where a person is suffering and is probable to die soon. Forcing a terminally ill person to live when they would rather die than suffer is much more immoral than euthanizing them.
Patients always ask for mercy killing for they see life as meaningless, but if the fear of death was managed by giving them hope and telling them encouraging words , I believe they will not opt for this act .If we let our patient get so stressed they will see themselves as a burden to the society since they cannot make rational judgment . we should avoid mentioning money used in patients presence as this aggravate their condition because they will feel as a burden and option of dying is what lingers in their minds .It is therefore prudent to support the sick and show them what they mean to us by making sure that all the necessary resources are availed, showering them with unconditional love and ensuring that they are free from depression. Governments should enact legislations that prohibit this vice and punitive measures put in place for the offenders. we should also view euthanasia from a perspective point of view. The term is only meant to apply to the sick but the one who are mostly affected are the family members, other people in a similar situation and
The assisted suicide refers to euthanasia for the patient who is suffering due to an incurable illness with help from the doctors to end patients suffering by taking of lethal drugs. Colombia, Switzerland, and Germany are some of the legal assisted suicide countries. Physicians cannot be prosecuted for prescribing medications to hasten death (“Physician-Assisted Suicide,” n.d.). Some individuals argue that assisted suicide could be better to become legal to endless patients suffering. However, it is argued that euthanized help patient to comfortable from doom.
Alzheimer 's Disease and its History, Symptoms, and Treatments Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia and is a progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age. It is the most common cause of a cognitive loss (Glicksman). In the United States, more than five million people are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease (Marsa). Some cases can be mild due to a later development in life. Because the disease develops later in life a patient will die before symptoms become severe.
In some hospitals terminally ill people can choose if they want to keep fighting or if they want to end their own life. It is a personal option for the individual if they want to end their life. If they have accepted that as a possibility nobody should be able to overrule their choice. The history of assisted suicide has increased and it is getting worse.
