What would the product of our actions, time and energy be?
Aren't these decisions philosophically what identify us as who we are even to the extent of a life or death situation?
If a terminal patient faces a long, slow, painful death, surely it is much kinder to spare them this kind of suffering and allow them to end their life comfortably.
Pain medications used to allieviate symptoms often have unpleasant side effects or may leave the patient in a state of sedation.
Some can be cared for at home, or in special hospices.
If we stopped caring for the terminally ill at all where would we draw the line?It is not as if they are really ‘living’ during this time; they are merely waiting to die.They should have the right to avoid this kind of torturous existence and be allowed to die in a humane way. We take medical pills, we put up an umbrella to avoid having rain fall on us, we try to not live in a tribal manner like our ancestors where we deem ourselves to live a civilized life where we do not simply kill eachother and rape eachother because its the "natural conclusion" of our actions.In my opinion it's not moral to kill a person even if they are terminally ill because this person need a chance to live along and see his life, but there are people that disagree.I have a debate in my college about this topic and I'd like to hear if you agree or disagree with euthanasia.Wait one day, wait one week, wait one month, we'll stay back and see.An indecisiveness for something which might not exist within one's lifetime would make a claim for which things ought to be reversible or decisions ought to be remade in order for things to be "controlled" in a manner.In addition, these resources could be re-allocated to further the research of the specific disease the patient is suffering in order to allow future generations to either not have the disease or increase the quality level of care for future patients of this disease by alleviating the symptoms of the disease at the very least.In addition, if the patient is an organ donator and the organs are healthy, it may save up several lives which are ultimately invaluable.A person who undergoes euthanasia is usually terminally ill.Euthanasia can be carried out either by doing something, such as administering a lethal injection, or by not doing something necessary to keep the person alive (for example failing to keep their feeding tube going).
