  1. One of the main reasons behind the euthanasia ethical debate is the difference between passive and active euthanasia

    Euthanasia is also a difficult issue as there is more than one type of euthanasia. The 5 main types are Voluntary euthanasia, is when a person who wants to be killed is killed, Non-voluntary euthanasia, is when the person who is killed gave no permission or made any request, Involuntary euthanasia, is when the person who is killed expressed a wish that was the exact opposite, Euthanasia By action, also known as Active Euthanasia, is intentionally causing someone's death by performing an action (e.g. a lethal injection) and Euthanasia By omission, also known as Passive Euthanasia, is intentionally causing death by not providing necessary care (Euthanasia Definitions 2012).
