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.
The ROI of EHRs article breaks down the importance of Electronic health records. Healthcare leaders need to have an open-mind about electronic health records to gain a better organized system.

Although care options for terminally ill patients are very limited, it is up to the patient and their loved ones to make it their priority to decide which care option is best. While assisted suicide has often came up for debate for the best option with the least amount of pain and suffering, Wesley Smith believes otherwise and has a very different opinion. He believes in giving terminally ill patients the best options that could have less suffering and prolong their life for many more years. He goes up to debate with Arthur Caplan who states that aid in dying should be considered and become a legal practice. Smith goes against Caplan’s argument by stating “we can validly criticize those who, for whatever reason, make it easier or acceptable

To put it simply, some people believe that people who hold a higher status will get “Better” organs. Each of these issues, as well as others, must be addressed when considering this procedure. However, despite all the concerns that must be addressed, xenotransplantation could save countless lives and therefore should not be dismissed. A person who’s life was torn away too soon could live another day, take another breath, enjoy another moment with the ones they love. This procedure could mean years of precious life given to people who otherwise would spend months or even years waiting for a donor organ to become
According to Kathleen Cullum, MSN, CRNP, “most organizations are now requiring that nurses have their RN license and many are requiring a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN).” The U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says “ only 17 percent of LPN’s are working in hospitals.” Additionally, it will cost you about double to stay in school and become an RN instead of an LPN. However this price is nothing compared to the difference in LPN vs RN pay. According to the U.S. department of Labor an RN will earn around 25,000 more annually than an LPN. Some will argue that the LPN route is the better path because it only takes 12 - 18 months to obtain your diploma compared to the 24-36 months it takes to become an RN. In addition, the BLS says, LPN jobs are expected to grow by 16 percent through 2024.

The Death with Dignity Act has two arguments: those who believe we have the right to choose how and when we die, and those who believe we do not possess that right; that we should not interfere with the natural order of life. Every year, people across America are diagnosed with a terminal illness. For some people there is time: time to hope for a cure, time to fight the disease, time to pray for a miracle. For others however, there is very little or no time. For these patients, their death is rapidly approaching and for the vast majority of them, it will be a slow and agonizing experience.
The study proved that the number of antigens were the same in children with ASD and those without ASD (CDC, 2015). Although making vaccinations compulsory goes against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it should be a crime to pass someone a preventable disease because the original carrier was not vaccinated. If vaccinations were unsafe or caused side effects that outweighed the goodness of them, they would not be legal. Vaccinations should be mandatory to keep our generation and the future generations as healthy as possible. Society should be doing everything possible to make sure everyone is healthy and to eradicate as many diseases as possible by getting vaccinations.
