’s turn to die. I don’t believe that we should have the power to decide one’s fate. An important part to recognize that is not talked a lot about in this topic is that if euthanasia and assisted suicide is illegal, then doctors won’t have the pressure and burden of having to take someone’s life, even if the person wanted it.

John could bring a negligence claim to court against PharmaCARE if he can show that the drug firm had an responsibility to act with ordinary or reasonable care toward a person or the general public.
