Explain the beliefs that Christians of various denominations hold about there responsibility of those at the end of there lives.
We as Christians believe that god created the world and every thing that lives on it. We believe that because he created it we have not got the right to create or end someone's life. Humans are different from other aspects of life because he gave us free will and he also gave us responsibility to care for ourselves and particularly for those at the end of their lives.
Euthanasia comes from the Greek word meaning easy death. It's when you commit a merciful act of helping a person to end their life in a painless way due to a terminal or very painful health condition.
