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.
