GCSE Coursework: Religious Studies OCR 1930A Paper 1 Luke's Gospel Euthanasia (b) Explain how Christians might put their beliefs about Euthanasia into action. The Christian church teaches us to definitely obligate to euthanasia. It is a process of killing someone basically, where in the bible it says, "Thou shall not kill". Regarding what the Christian perspective is to euthanasia, some Christians may put their beliefs about euthanasia into action by the following. In order to rid of euthanasia Christians may ask the law of Euthanasia to change. If this law is to be acknowledge by the MP and president of America then the law of banning euthanasia would flourish throughout the word.

In conclusion to how Christians may put their beliefs about euthanasia into action, I think the best way is to definitely have hospices worldwide. This is a better alternative, and is a place were friendship is always operating, between patients and staff. Hospices should be use because it's a peaceful environment, and is also a Christian establishment. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
