Debate Rounds (3)
Now that I have explained my real position, let me start off with some reasons why Euthanasia should be legal.
1. Dying with Dignity: If they are able to speak for themselves and they say that they would like to go ahead and peacefully die, then they should get that as their last wish.
2. Suffering: Would you rather somebody suffer for days with an imminent fate, or would you just let them be peacefully put out of their misery? I don't think that they should have to suffer.
3. Free Will: I think that if the patient is in his right mind and wants to go ahead and end it, they should have the free will to have their wish.
I look forward to hearing your response and/or counter-argument. I am glad that I accepted this debate.
second: what in suffering? is there any solution for sopping suffering except killing? Doctors are best to answer this question, but simply they can give him some treatments that can relieve his pains.
Third: ok ok free will is available for everyone, as they are free in taking their own decisions, but is there a free will in stopping a man from life ? or taking a human life ? is he an animal ? Even animals have rights to live, so the humans don't ?
you said that you are against in the beginning of your argument, so are you convinced by your words ??
2. There may not be any other solution to the suffering. That may be the only way to ease the pain. Our medicines and doctors aren't as good as you think they are. Some pains cannot be eased.
3. The free will should not have anything to do with the doctors or the ones performing it. I think that the family and/or the patient should have that say if they want to go ahead and end it. Some things cannot be eased. If that is their will, then they should have the free will to do that.
you are not sure about what you have said "Our medicines and doctors aren't as good as you think they are. Some pains cannot be eased." There are a lot of alternatives that can ease the pains. our medicine has developed to a very wide extent. we are in the age of medical revolution.
The free will is provided to anyone, but in an ethical way not in any way. There are no religion that support what you say, no religion can say that anyone has the right to kill someone to ease his suffering or anyone can decide to lose his life.
You are correct that we are in the age of medical revolution, but that is the point. We are in the MIDDLE. We are not done yet, and there are still things that are yet to be discovered, so let's say that the person was suffering from something that there was no possible way to ease the pain. I'm sure that that has happened before.
Free will is provided in any way that they want. They should have the free will to lose their life, ONLY if it is imminent very soon and are suffering.
In my closing statements, I would like to point out a few things. Here is my list of things that I would like to point out:
1. The definition of Euthanasia is at this link: http://dictionary.reference.com...
Painless death. That sums it up. So, if you don't support euthanasia, then you support painful death. Why the heck would anybody support that?
2. Please read this story: http://www.telegraph.co.uk...
These guys thought that they had absolutely nothing to live for when they found out that they were going blind. That could have meant possible years of suffering. That would be absolutely tragic.
3. Yet another story: http://articles.washingtonpost.com...
Even the woman's husband was so glad that his wife was able to go out the way she did. THAT is dying with dignity.
4. Just look at my opponent's capitalization and grammar errors. How can you vote for that?
