Euthanasia is never justified do you agree?

        The issue of Euthanasia is a moral issue, and as with all moral issues there are two sides to every story. Euthanasia is the ending of somebody’s life, generally as an attempt to end suffering. When it is discussed, people often mean Voluntary Euthanasia that is a form of aided suicide (which means someone performs the suicide for someone who is unable to.) Some people believe Euthanasia is a crime and is therefore not justified. These people believe that the act of Euthanasia is going against God’s will, and these people generally follow the bible, which also states this. 1 Corinthians 6:19 claims that our bodies are God’s temple, therefore meaning that the ending of a life means the damaging of a part of God. Also, Genesis 1:26-31 says that as God created the human race in his own image, then Euthanasia is clearly unnatural. Romans 14:8 says, “Whether we live or die, we belong to God” this is strictly against Euthanasia, because it means that once we kill someone we are violating God’s will. Finally however, there is one of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:73 which says, “you shall not murder”, and euthanasia is clearly a form of murder.

One man, completely paralysed, unable to talk, move, feed himself – his only communication is through the blinking of his eyes. Using codes, people have ...
