Introduction

euthansia is to intentionally ends a human being life to relive pain and suffering. When person is deathly sick, he would be able inform the doctor that he does not want to live anymore. Their fore with the consent he is able to than take away the patients lives.

main argument

My first reason is how it helps benefits the pain people are going through. I want to say firs that Oregon use this method in their state. It is seen as an honoring the civil rights of an individual to choose death over an unacceptable quality of life. basically give the right to a human being if they believe they are living in unconditional life. so who are we too choices our love ones life. a general amount of people in society give away their parents and grandparents to doctors to test on when a person shows very little life. Why is because it makes their lives easier and more money due too the hospitable bills. since they do not care those people are getting tested on with different kinds of injections. These people should have their fair say til the end if they do want too live or not. in Oregon most people do suicide because they feel like they are a burden on their family or hate their living condition.
Next is how the medical cost will be cheaper.
Another reason why this could be beneficial is the medical bill. Since more people would be taking use of this law. then the hospital wouldn't have to spend much money on medications. That can be used for better use like finding new cure in the medical field. another reason the actually medical bill wouldn't really badly effect on family's who are not able to afford the bill. even when this happens it free up the funds for people who can have a better chance at survival.

conclusion
In the end i believe that this should be a passed law. For the reason of how it would let the people have a right too not suffer anymore. That all that people only truly have the choices of freedom. This law is passed in the Netherlands for the reason that those people want that kind of freedom. Then how medical bill could be helping lot more family's out. Then all the medical funds can free up , they can start helping out her patients out who are able to be saved. These are some reason on why our nation can have a positive outlook if euthanasia is an effected law.

Euthanasia is a very sensitive issue. While I can appreciate your point of view on Euthanasia being something you support and my thoughts are just the opposite.

The right to die is a very serious decision. It has been quoted as follows: "The history of the law's treatment of assisted suicide in this country has been and continues to be one of the rejection of nearly all efforts to permit it. That being the case, our decisions lead us to conclude that the asserted 'right' to assistance in committing suicide is not a fundamental liberty interest protected by the Due Process Clause." Washington v. Glucksberg US Supreme Court Majority Opinion.

While I can agree that these people are feeling pain there is no way are they in the right frame of mind to make this life or death decision nor should the doctors or nurses which will kill them. This would be considered Active Euthanasia. It is possible that the treatment the person is receiving needs to be adjusted. I can promise you this that when the pain subsides they think more clearly. Currently, the medicines being used have become much better and people live longer and doctors can sometimes keep people alive for a long time with the help of machines. Doctors when they went to medical school have taken oaths to help people heal and get better not to support them to die or take their lives. Being a Roman Catholic this act is forbidden and is seen as a crime.

Regarding the medical bills this is just an excuse. How can anyone think that saving money is more important than their life. This goes to show you that this person again as stated earlier is not in their right state of mind to make such a decision. Why should the medical bills be or play such a strong factor for weather you choose to live or die.
In summary, no way do I agree to support this horrible process just to save money. Your life should not have a price tag on it.
