    General Paper
    Yr11 Dayeon & Wook
  • What is Euthanasia?
    The intentional killing by act or omission of a dependent human being for his or her alleged benefit.
    There are two kinds of Euthanasia:
    Euthanasia By Action
    Euthanasia By Omission
  • Cause of Euthanasia
    Insufferable pain
    Right to commit suicide
    People should not be forced to stay alive
  • Religious Controversy
    Christianity & Roman Catholic:
    Mostly against Euthanasia
    Exceptions and Omissions
    Christianity requires us torespect every human being.
    Refusing aggressive medical treatment is morally acceptable in the Catholic.
    Assisting suicide is morally wrong.
  • Islam
    Treating Euthanasia as a suicide.
    Buddhism
    Their ideas are not unanimous, because Buddha didn’t teach about it.
    Most Buddhist thinkEuthanasia and suicide are wrong voluntarily.
    Instead there are Meditation and pain killing drugs.
  • Social Controversy Assisted Suicide: A right or a wrong?
    Name: Matthew Donnelly
    Disease: Skin Caner
    (conducted research on the using of x-rays)
    After:
    He lost his nose, his left hand, two fingers on his right hand, and part of his jaw.
    He became left blind and the pain was unrelenting.
    Matthew's brother Harold, killed his brother as he couldn’t ignore his brother’s pain.
  • Assisted Suicide: A right or a wrong?
    Wrong!
    Right!
    All persons have a moral right to choose freely what they will do with their lives as long as they inflict no harm on others.
    When such people ask for assistance in exercising their right to die, their wishes should be respected.
    Under the law, suicide is not a crime, but assisted suicide is. Therefore, we as a society should keep laws.
    Doctors and nurses have to find themselves "pressured" to cooperate in a patient's suicide. For satisfy the desires of a patient wanting to die, it's unjust that others relate deeply with someone’s life.
