Voluntary Euthanasia


Euthanasia is the intentional ending of a living being’s life by act or omission to ease pain and suffering. Euthanasia by action involves an action such as giving a lethal injection to induce a person’s death. The cause of death by omission euthanasia occurs when the necessary and ordinary care or food and water are intentionally not provided. It may include tough choices like either to prolong someone’s life or relieve him of his suffering by performing ‘mercy killing’. In most cases the practice of euthanasia is performed if the suffering individual requests for it, but there are special cases where euthanasia administered to a person who is unable to make such a request. There are different categories of Euthanasia such as voluntary, involuntary and non-voluntary. I am going to talk about Voluntary Euthanasia although its practice is still opposed by many people.
