p2 accepting euthanasia is like saying that the life of the disabled or sick are worth less than others.
p3 Euthanasia exposes vulnerable people to pressure to end their lives
conclusion - everyone deserve to live .
P2- If we accept that euthanasia weakens society's respect for the sanctity of life we should forbid a lot of other practices such as sentencing individuals to death or even the simple signing of the "DNR papers". The Do Not Resuscitate form is signed to say that if for any person the patient goes into cardiac arrest, they do not want to be revived. The doctors just "allow the natural" death and stand by until the patient eventually passes away. That relates very closely to euthanasia which is why it should be legal.
P3- Euthanasia does not pressure individuals into doing anything. It is a free choice that the person makes. People may want to end their lives because they're tired of suffering, They may also want to end their lives because the cost to live in a hospital until they eventually die is too much to afford. At the end of they day, no one should be forced to sit through pain and suffering when they know they are not going to get better.
P2 : Patients not wanting euthanasia would inevitably hear about their dreadful prognosis from other patients with similar medical conditions.
p3No matter what the safeguards, patients not wanting euthanasia may become anxious that they will be included as victim.http://www.all.org...
P2- Patients who are kept alive with no chance of getting better are using valuable resources such as medicine and hospital supplies. If the individual no longer wants to be held in the hospital for who knows how long, they should be able to give up their right to live. If it will benefit somebody else who is terribly ill, who has a chance of survival, we should respect the terminally ill person's wished to benefit the next person.
P3- By the indiviudual wanting to end their lives, they are not harming anybody. If anybody will suffer from the procedure, it will be them. They should be able to make that choice.
C; Euthanasia should be legalized.
P2 mercy killing what causes the morning and medical core and cause victimization of most venerable society.
P3 legalize euthanasia would be simply saying that mercy killing has transformed from from the right to die to the right to kill.
Conclusion therefore euthanasia shouldn't be legalized.
P2- I think you keep forgetting that Euthanasia IS VOLUNTARY! Doctors are not just going to go around killing off people who are terminally ill. That's involuntary euthanasia and that is also illegal. So it's not that sick people are being victimized, they are welcome to stay alive as long as they can, however, if they want to make this choice, this should be a choice that they are allowed to make.
P3- That's not what euthanasia is saying.
C; Euthanasia should be legalized.

Reasons for voting decision: Con seems to not see a difference between suicide and murder. Con also assumes that sanctity exists, be it of life or anything else. Many would disagree. It seems Con does not understand the issue at hand, and would do well to read up a bit more on the subject.
