Issues to consider when formulating your responses:
Does every citizen have “a right to die” at a time of their choosing especi5ally if they are experiencing immense pain and suffering? Does the legalization of voluntary euthanasia create a slippery slope towards involuntary euthanasia (e.g., terminal patients may “choose” euthanasia because they are being pressured by family members or may feel guilty about being a burden on them)?Is it a moral imperative to preserve the “sanctity of life” at all costs?Is it immoral to impose one person’s religious beliefs, that suicide is morally wrong, on another individual and deny that person, who is suffering, the choice to end their pain?
Definition of euthanasia: The act or practice of ending the life of a person having a terminal illness or a medical condition that causes suffering perceived as incompatible with an acceptable quality of life, as by lethal injection (active euthanasia) or the suspension of certain medical treatments (passive euthanasia).
