Do you think euthanasia should be legalized in Cyprus?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Do you think euthanasia should be legalized in Cyprus? Euthanasia can be described as an impassionate, cruel, ruthless act that survived through ages until modern days. Yet people are asking to alter our moral values and principles by demanding legal practice of euthanasia on human beings. This design must once for all be prevented. Such a thing must not, and will not be accepted, because life is meant to be lived in order to be kept alive. To begin with, the practice of euthanasia will diversify moralities. The Hippocratic oath, which was kept by doctors for thousands of years now acting as a motive to make them offer their best in helping their fellowman in pain will then be erased for ever. As if this was not enough doctors will be forced to act as executioners. They will be the ones to take away a human life, whether it will be against or over their will. ...read more.

Middle

The legalization of euthanasia will cause long-term problems. It is obvious that the church will not remain inactive. With the support of a large percentage of the Greek Cypriot population the church will strongly oppose if such a decision is taken, since it is evident that disobeys all Christian teachings which are considered as the core of our religion. An additional technical problem is the inability of the patient to take a logical decision during period of time, which he is under high pressure and great depression. The decision maybe rush and incorrect since the patient is not in his right mind. Therefore we must not give them the chance to do so by legalizing euthanasia. We must keep trying to persuade them that it worth living whatever the difficulties, and vitalize them in time of pain and despair. Also, once euthanasia is legalized it may be an easy way for people who want to put an end to their lives to do so through euthanasia, and as a result more suicides will take place. ...read more.

Conclusion

Does the life of disabled or terminally ill people worth less than ours. Is our life more meaningful than theirs? Is it because of these people that the quality of life is lowered or because of crime, corruption, selfishness and hatred. These are some questions that will help us rearrange our thoughts and help us judge with a clearer mind. Only then we will be able to see the incalculable value of life. Only then we'll find strength and faith in our heart to fight together our problems, difficulties and overcome any obstacle we find in the path of life. Because the path is made smoother when traveled with someone on our side. Death is only an excuse to turn away from our problems, and one must never, for whatever reason turn his back to life. To live is to have problems and to have problems helps to grow stronger and wiser. Yesterday is the past; tomorrow is the future today is a gift, that's why it's called "The Present". So we must enjoy our life today in every way we find possible being grateful at the same time we received this "gift". ...read more.
