The definition of euthanasia is the act of putting to death painlessly. I feel like this would be the right thing to do for the reasons that, if a person can no longer function and put forth what they are worth, they should no being living. But, then there is the argument that what if there is a 1% chance of this person living. I understand also that family want to have their loved ones here, but don't you think that if they can't even breathe on there own, or think, or feed themselves; that you making them stay here remaining useless is just a tad bit selfish. I feel that if a person has it in there will, that they should be allowed to tell there family to "pull the plug".
Well, this argument was bad so I will just do rebuttals to her arguments to close. I will first say that euthanasia does not have to be at the consent of the patient, by definition and so it could be abused with doctors killing patients because they are to expensive or their family wants them dead. I will say that 1% chance of life is a chance and we should try to save as many lives as we can. Supposing that 1 million people had euthanasia. According to your stats, that means that we could have saved 10,000 lives that were lost. Also miracles do happen. A boy in Europe survived a strain of e-coli that nobody else had lived through. Sure he suffered but he lived and life is precious. Here a few pictures of the boy: during treatment and illness and after.
