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.

From a Friends for Mental Health article titled “Children living with a mentally ill parent,” by Jaimie Byrne, the prospect of living with a mentally ill parent is said to be “chaotic, disorganized, and filled with tension,” if the proper steps towards understanding the mental illness are not made naturally. The article encourages children to fully acknowledge the fact that their parent(s) are “sick,” -- as physical illness is a common ground for young people, a concept which they can grasp -- and that they are in need of support and acceptance in order to live a fulfilling and healthy home life. They must also educate themselves on the mental illness and what to say when a parent’s mental illness is at its worst. Living with a mentally ill parent is completely possible, and should not be used as an excuse for neglect. There are simply more things to take note of and to do in order to maintain a strong parent-child relationship.
