Pro’s of euthanasia

Human rights-  Euthanasia should be recognised, for the way it provides compassionate relief of pain and suffering of patients as well as providing support for those who value their choice. The doctors behave in such a compassionate way by showing respect, individuality and human rights towards patients who are making the decision to go through with euthanasia, pollard, B. (1999) as well as allowing the patient to choose what they desire for. Many individuals who have lost their ability to maintain quality of life, patients who become in a vegetative state of a chronic illness and no longer wants to become a burden on their family members , this is when euthanasia is considered due to upholding the right to life by honouring right to die with dignity.

In most of the cases of euthanasia, the cause is not pain and suffering but depression, hopelessness and fear of loss of autonomy. We also cannot differentiate whether the person has some psychotic disorder that is hampering to his decision making. And if these are the causes, then What is the difference between suicide and euthanasia. This is also the reason why suicide prevention experts have criticized euthanasia as it encourages people for suicides as it is seen that the suicide rates in the counties where euthanasia is legalized is increasing.
