Should we allow euthanasia

historyrocks
TheProfessor88

If the patient is in a very bad physical state and the doctors have said there is nothing they can do and the patient would be in constant pain to still be alive then the patient should be able to choose as long as he is in a fit mental state. "The right of a competent, terminally ill person to avoid excruciating pain and embrace a timely and dignified death bears the sanction of history and is implicit in the concept of ordered liberty.

TheDebatingKnight

Not only did they excel economically and politically but in language and the arts as well.
