Euthanasia may sound like a nice word but it is really nothing more than a method by which thousands of elderly people are made to die each year by relatives who often think they are doing what is best for them.

How does euthanasia work you might ask. It is quite simple acutally and is widely accomodated in hospice care even though the practice is illegal in some states. Death by euthanasia in some cases means that the elderly person is deprived of food and water until his or her body shuts down and they die. Injections and drugs can also be used.

Ehthnasia is like a two edged sword on one hand it can relieve those who are terminally ill and suffering, from their pain and misery, on the other hand it can send those whose family members are tired of caring from them to an early grave. Do you think it justifiable to have an elderly relative who is still capable of eating and drinking and stave them to death. You thoughts are highly appreciated.

      That’s the dilemma, while this might be beneficial to the terminally ill patient that is in pain and suffering there is also the risk of abusing others who do not fall in that category.

    You can never deprive a person from food or drink, that is horrible. That is not Euthanasia. My dad actually chose this road and wanted to die, so he refused to eat and drink. It was hard to see but we respected his wishes as he had written that he does not want to be fed by tube. He slipped away peacefully as he wanted. Still if Euthanasia then with humane methods please.

  4. Tough one. I believe no one has the right to take the right of another. I also think that taking a life is the worst thing one could do. So its a tough one. If they are in pain? If they are old? If it is their choice? I dont know. For me the weight of the preciousness of life is too much to see an argument for Euthanasia. But thats just me. Never been faced with the choice so no judgement. At the end of the day its about what is best for the person whose life it is I guess.

      I agree Antonio this is a serious decision to make. I for one believe that if the person is suffering and is in serious pain and want to go out using this route. I think it is okay to grant them their wish. It is those who are incapable of making the decisions for themselves who are more at risk for abuse.
