Do we have the right to die when we determine it by our own unique circumstances? Assisted suicide, a process in which a doctor or nurse gives a lethal injection of medicine to a patient that has made the decision to die, causes many controversial ethical and moral issues.
The idea of assisted suicide, (ending a life by one’s choice) is not acceptable in many cultures, religions or personal beliefs, but is it any different than euthanizing an animal because that animal is terminally ill or in excruciating pain with no available treatment? How or why isn’t that seen as immoral and wrong? Is euthanizing an animal to relief them of pain and suffering any different than a person who is in pain suffering from a terminal illness, or in incurable and unmanageable pain from end stage diseases? I believe all people; more specifically terminally ill patients should be allowed to have the option of choosing life or death.
