They may only see it from the patient’s perspective and believe that she should do what is right for her if her quality of life has diminished and she now lives a life with little independence (Alters, 2008). She could decide on passive euthanasia, which is forgoing medical treatment that allows her body to naturally die, or she could utilize a physician to administer, or provide her with a lethal amount of drugs that will enable her to commit suicide (Alters, 2008). Either of these decisions for Joni would require assistance, the willingness of another person to help her end her life since she is unable to use her arms or hands due to her paralysis. Therefore, both of these people place their beliefs in the right-to-die, and then they view the body as destroyed by a disease that they perceive as no longer worth living (Humphrey, 2000).
The Court held that a woman’s right to an abortion fell within the right to privacy protected by the Fourteenth Amendment. This decision gave woman the liberty to abort a fetus during the first trimester. It also defined different levels of state interest for the second and third
Washington chose to enforce the ban as it is rationally related to a state interest, therefore related to the exercise of its police powers. In my opinion, Washington 's ban on physician assisted-suicide did not violate the Fourteenth Amendment 's Due Process Clause. Analyzing the guarantees of the Due Process Clause, the Court focused on two main aspects: the protection of our nation 's objective fundamental, historically rooted, rights and liberties; and the cautious definition of what constitutes a due process liberty interest. The Court held that the right to assisted suicide is not a fundamental liberty interest protected by the Due Process Clause since its practice has been, and continues to be, offensive to our national traditions and practices.

Roe v. Wade is the most well known case on abortion and was originally located in the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas, but later became a Supreme Court case.

A criminal abortion statute was first enacted in Texas in 1854, with the exception of abortion by medical advice for the purpose of saving the life of the mother.

The Supreme Court Case Gonzales vs. Oregon, argued on October 5, 2005, deals with an act that Oregon enacted, the “Death With Dignity Act.” Under this act, physicians had the power to prescribe fatal doses of controlled substances to patients who were terminally ill —meaning that suicide assisted by a doctor was now legal in Oregon. Attorney General John Ashcroft, in 2001, asked that law enforcement prosecute doctors who prescribed these lethal doses of controlled substances by issuing a ruling called the “Ashcroft Directive.” The Ashcroft Directive stated that under the Controlled Substances Act, suicide under a physician was not an actual “medical purpose,” and therefore, illegal. The General Attorney proceeding Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales,
Anyone who has been arrested before should know their rights therefore no matter what that person had done they are required to read you your rights as you are arrested. But who created the Miranda rights? The Miranda rights were first created by the Supreme Court after a man named Ernesto Miranda was convicted of his crime without his rights read to him. This case Ernesto, he was convicted of kidnapping and raping an eighteen year old ill woman. I disagree with this because of his past crimes along with his new crimes.
Miranda vs. Arizona Introduction The Supreme Court case of Miranda vs. Arizona (1966) was a significant case for both law enforcement agencies and the citizens of America. This case would be the milestone that changed how law enforcement agencies handled citizens that were being detained for crimes that were committed.

While this was not the first case that brought up violations of Constitutional Rights, this case would set a standard that future Supreme Court Justices would have to uphold.

A controversial practice that invokes a debate over how beneficial its intentions are is the use of euthanasia. The argument switches between whether or not putting terminally ill patients to death with the assistance of a physician is justifiable and right. Legalizing the practice of euthanasia is a significant topic among many people in society, including doctors and nurses in the medical field, as it forces people to decide where to draw the line between relieving pain and simply killing. While some people see euthanasia as a way to helping a patient by eliminating their pain, it is completely rejected by others who see it as a method of killing.
