    Euthanasia Euthanasia Presentation Transcript

    • Euthanasia
      Painless Death
    • Euthanasia is the termination
      of a human because they are
      living an intolerable life and
      are terminally ill…
    • It is ended either by lethal injection…
    • Over-dose…
    • Or withdrawl from life support
      or medication.
    • Euthanasia as an Ethical Dilemma
      There is a difference of opinion…
      Some believe it is for the better…
      Others believe it is completely wrong or against their religion.
    • There are four types of Euthanasia
    • One
      The doctor gives the
      patient a prescription to
      ‘put them to sleep’
    • Two
      Voluntary
      That the patient refuses medicine,
      life support, takes their own
      life or over-doses
    • Three
      Non-Voluntary
      The patient approves of the death
      and it is performed by a friend
      or family member
    • Four
      Terminal Sedation
      Medical induced sleep without other treatment
    • Assisted suicide is not a legitimate medical procedure and this was determined by the attorney general in 2001…
    • The United States refuse to legally allow Euthanasia…
    • And as far as we know, that will not change for a long time.
    • Arguments Against…
      Euthanasia is for people who have terminal illness…
      Terminal meaning someone that is expected to die in 6 months
    • Arguments For…
      The patient is in unbearable pain
      To the family of a cancer patient, to see that person undergo so much is the most difficult task
    • To a family of a patient in a coma, knowing they cannot live their life or even speak, is unbearable
      They have the right to commit suicide
    • You cannot force someone to live
      No laws or medical ethics
      requires everything to
      be done to keep a person
      alive
    • Since 2000
      20 cases of euthanasia go on trial every year…
      And every single one has prevailed
    • In the end, you helped them
