At the present time science has reached greater heights indifferent fields and occupies most our lifetime.
Moreover, the development ofmedicine has allowed to maintain the life of a dying patient for a long time,due to the complex and often painful procedure for him. Nevertheless, there isan open question has split society into two camps. The great effort being madeto introduce euthanasia in those nations where it is currently prohibited. This is a baffling problemfor many countries as a consequence of medical ethics, religion and divergingfrom the Hippocratic Oath. Euthanasia means “mercy killing” or act of helpingto someone who is experiencing an excruciating pain because of incurabledisease. Certainly, it is unbearable to relatives to lose loved ones, but theydon’t know what degree of suffering makes them the choice to die.
None but the sufferercan define degree of his suffering and it can never be truly communicated byanyone.The issue ofeuthanasia, or increasingly used term “assisted suicide” arises ascontroversial since the practice is forbidden by law in many countries.Supporters and opponents give different arguments.
However, there arelegitimate concerns on either side. One of the apprehensions is the possibility ofabuse. On the one hand, in some cases doctors will lead to pressure on sufferers,but on the other hand must be legally correct to issue, that euthanasia doesnot become the legalized murder. Indeed, the struggle for the life of the sickperson is only valid if is a hope of recovery possible. Otherwise, the matterappears of easing suffering and in this case it will be euthanasia.
Notwithstanding that the world is afraid to allowdoctors to use euthanasia; in the past, he also feared ligating organtransplantation. Today, the success of transplantology can reduce the mortalityrate for those who were previously hopeless. At the same time, the problem ofthe donation of human organs divides society into those who are “pros” and”cons”. Therefore, if euthanasia will legal in every state, there will still bedisagreement between individuals.
Also, none of the humans is immune from thefact this problem will become relevant for him in the future.Finally, Euthanasia is a term that has acquired anegative connotation in the modern world. It frightens society and has a goodreason. Death has never been a pleasant topic for discussion and the fact thata doctor can help to someone meet one’s end is terrifying.
Yet, euthanasia isstrictly regulated and not practiced in many countries in the world. Those whoare a part of this should not be condemned as murderers, as they executetestaments of their patients.
