Humans have a right to live, so don’t they have a right to die?
Euthanasia is legal and illegal in multiple different places in the world due to different perspectives of the treatment.
There are three different categories of Euthanasia:
1-Voluntary: the patient’s decision
2-Non-Voluntary: parent’s consent
3-Involuntary: without patient’s consent and against the patient’s will
This is one of the most debated topics, because some consider it murder or suicide who believe is not the solution therefore should not be legalized. Some think it should be legalized for incurable diseases, or for intense, everlasting pain. It’s your body, it’s your condition, therefore it’s your decision whether you want to die or not.
-Dignified dying is a human right; if we have the right to live, we should have the right to die.
-The explicit right to choose their own decision
-Under excruciating pain and suffering, relieving it with death is much less painful
-We’re all human, we have self determination
-This is a human right, it is not harming others
-Everyone has a right to a good death. Patients should not be opposed to when they are choosing to die. Why suffer and die a slow and painful death?
-Respect the life that you have
-Considered “murder” no matter what
Quote by Carrasco de Paula: “Suicide is not a good thing, it is a bad thing because it is saying no to life and to everything it means with respect to our mission in the world and towards those around us.” -Do you agree?
Premise 1: “Euthanasia causes people to think that doctors are murderers.”
Premise 2: “Murder is considered a crime”
Conclusion: “Therefore, euthanasia is a crime.”
Premise 1: This is factually correct, although it isn’t necessarily to fitting to everyone. People who are against euthanasia may not think that it’s always the doctor’s fault but rather think that it’s wrong for people to throw away their life so easily.
Premise 2: Factually correct.
Conclusion: This is a valid argument because both premises are true, although there is a slight flaw in premise 1. Therefore, this is not a sound argument.
Although I stand somewhere in the middle, I lean more towards the side that it should be legalized. Maybe have an age limit as to when you can decide, possibly having the right to decide starting at the age of 18. Kids who are younger than that age will need parental consent. I am 100% against involuntary euthanasia. It is completely wrong for the doctor to use euthanasia without any consultation of the parents or patient. It is completely understandable that people may think of that as murder. But in the end, we are our own person and we are to make our own decisions. euthanasia is not to be used easily, but I think it should be considered.
