Euthenasia Euthanasia is often called ?mercy killing?. It is intentionally making someone die, rather than allowing that person to die naturally.
It is sometimes the act of ending someone?s life who is terminally ill, or is suffering in severe pain. Euthanasia is mostly illegal in the world today. Euthanasia can be considered a form of suicide, if the person afflicted with the problem actively does it.
The person volunteering to commit the act to that person can also consider it a form of murder. The positive side of Euthanasia is that it ends a person?s suffering in this world. Many physicians and psychiatrists believe that it may a humane act. From a virtue ethics point of view, it may be appropriate. What we seek in human existence is to be happy, and find happiness.
Suffering from a terminal illness, or affliction, could inhibit one?s happiness in life. If the goal is to be happy, then Euthanasia would be an answer for this person. Euthanasia may even bring about happiness in that it is what the person desires and wants, in order to no longer to be a burden to his/her family.
