Euthanasia, Literature review on Euthanasia

  1. 1. www.Virtual-Dissertation.com1 Literature review on Euthanasia1.1 Stop the murders under the name of Euthanasia or euthanasia should beillegalEuthanasia, or however people might call it to brighten up an act of murder, is the act of"pulling the plug" as we know it in slang. There are at least 3147 cases of euthanasia worldwidethat happen when a patient at a hospital is very sick and is hanging between life and death(Rollin,2009). The doctors or the people making decision on behalf of that person are then askedif they should assist the patient in ending his or her suffering. However, it might not be the rightof anyone to claim someones life, even if the patient is unresponsive. Doctors have a duty tokeep working very hard to make sure that no blood is spilt on their hands, or in a more literalphrase, because of their hands. In one case, doctors euthanized two deaf kids because they wereafraid they might go blind. This case was based only on speculation and someone should takeresponsibility for the kids’ deaths. Euthanasia has a lot of negative associations to it, and as somemight argue that they are ending the suffering of that patient, there is still that question lingeringwhether there was hope or not. Many cases of coma have gone for years, and in the end, thepatient woke-up, maybe a little bit unaware and unstable, but the patient is alive. Terry Wallismade the news after waking up from a 19 year coma (Ryan, 2013). Euthanasia should be treatedas an act of murder because of the negative social, cultural and religious effects that it causes.
  2. 2. EUTHANASIA www.Virtual-Dissertation.com [page #]1.2 Euthanasia & Physician Assisted SuicideThe Physician assisted suicide is the voluntary termination of the life by one’s own will.This voluntary termination of the life is usually done by using any type of lethal substances, thisusing of lethal substance could have by using the physician assistance or not. Physician assistedsuicide is the type of medical practice that is the type of act that is comprised to prescribe themedication to the patient with the intension to put an end of the patient life.In United States of America, Oregon is the only state that allows this type of act that leadto the death. The name of the law that is in practice is the Death with Dignity Act , this act allowthe fatally ill state resident to have the prescriptions for self-controlled deadly substance fromtheir physician or doctors.However, this procedure does not permit the euthanasia, where the physician or anyother person administrates the process of medication directly to end his/her life. Death withDignity Act gives the permission to adults who are the victim of terminal disease and in the stageof ending his life with the probability to end their life within six months. These patients areallowed according to this act to use lethal substances to end their own life with the help of theirphysicians. However, the fact is that there were only few peoples who were willing to follow thisact and there is very slight number of patients who practiced this legally allowed lethal practice.
  3. 3. EUTHANASIA www.Virtual-Dissertation.com [page #]1.2.1 Euthanasia, Physician Assisted Suicide & ControversiesHowever, it is the big debate about this type of suicide. The opponent of PhysicianAssisted Suicide argue that there is no any right to end the costless human life because it is thebasic right of common human being to enjoy his life even with the hope that there will be somegood that is waiting for him or her. Because, hope is like the lantern in the deep darkness thatprovide help to identify the path to overcome any quest. Furthermore, the role of doctor andphysician should be as the role model that has the prime responsibility to put the balm on soaringdisease than to convert them as the killer that is the totally diversification of their primeresponsibilities that is to provide the healing ("Death with dignity,").However, there is another point of view that supports the notion of Physician AssistedSuicide. According to this viewpoint, if patient is already suffering with deadly pain anduncontrollable disease and there is the clear evident that the victim of such type of uncontrollableand lethal disease will have to face the death in near future, there is no any use to keep themalive with the unbearable pain.The negative cultural effects of euthanasia are in the tampering with cultural values thathave been passed to us from one generation to the other. Just like our cultural background in theU.A.E condemns killing and murder, it condemns euthanasia and any act that can be related tomurder. We are looking at a world losing cultural values, and becoming more open. Open is not
  4. 4. EUTHANASIA www.Virtual-Dissertation.com [page #]a bad thing when it is for the better, but we cannot add murder to become part of the opennessthat is happening to our cultural background. There is no implication that ones culture is perfect.However, a lot of good values have been passed to us like respect, loyalty and a lot more, onlythese values that have expired and no longer suit our current advancement should be changed bythe parents and the scholar of our modern culture. Euthanasia will destroy a huge dimension ofour culture, of all cultures for that matter. We have just run away from good cultural pillars toones that make us murderers and criminals. It will cause a separation between loved one, withless respect towards a person’s life, and without mutual respect towards everything that is humanwe can’t be differentiated from animals.1.3 Euthanasia Controversies & Dr. Jack KevorkianIn the connection of this supportive notion, the name of Dr. Jack Kevorkian is veryfamous because of its controversial character as pathologist. He is also known as Dr. Death. JackKevorkian was firstly entitled as the Dr. Death in 1956 when he initiated the photographing ofpatient’s retina at the time of demise in the perspective to differentiate between the death andcomma. …………………………………www.Virtual-Dissertation.comWe provide writing help to develop quality Essays, Term Papers, Course work, Thesisand Dissertation, etc. for those who are quality oriented.We cover lots of different subjects including (but not to bound only these),
