Everyone has the right to an easy death.
We have the choice of what to do with our lives, be it making simple everyday decisions to life changing ones. Therefore, shouldn’t we have the choice of when and how to end our lives?
Who wants to live in pain and terror? No one. Therefore why should we put people who want to die through the pain of living, when we can ease them of it by ending their lives? We have the ability of giving people the choice of having an easy death over a difficult and painful death. If patients consent, we should do all we can to help them. One of the arguments against euthanasia is that any form of suicide is devastating for the people left behind who love the person who has decided that his or her life is no longer worth living: it is especially damaging for children. However it is also devastating for family and friends to watch the person suffer in pain to stay alive.
