A considerable size of society is in favor of euthanasia mostly because they feel that as a democratic party, we as free individuals, have the right to determine when to terminate someone's life. When humans take it upon themselves to shorten others’ lives by withdrawing life-sustaining apparatus, they play god. They usurp the divine function, and interfere with the divine plan. Euthanasia, commonly called ‘Mercy Killing,’ is the practice of painlessly putting to death persons who have incurable, agonizing diseases. Every person has a right to live a dignified life, and the plight of the person causes him to live a convoluted life, therefore he should be allowed to end such tortuous existence. However, I rank euthanasia as nothing less than cold-blooded killing, as it cheapens life, even more so than the very divisive issue of abortion. In addition, modern medicine has evolved by leaps and bounds, but the act of euthanasia resets these medical advances back by decades and relegates today's Medical Doctors to administrators of death. Euthanasia is both morally and ethically wrong. The stronger and more widely held opinion I believe is against euthanasia, because society feels that it is god's task to determine when one of his creations’ time has come, and we as human beings are in no position to behave as god and end someone's life.
The topic that I have chosen for my blog entry is Euthanasia. I have chosen this topic because the other day, I came across the deliberate killing of people in the ‘Hillsboro Disaster’ back in 1996. It has been revealed that 41 men had met their fate due to the unwillingness of several doctors to look after them, because their state has left no hope of survival. It is god who has chosen for these people to endure this pain, because life is a test, and god examines his creations to see how his creations still approach him when through hardships and misery.
