Euthanasia is not that different from murder because they both involve killing a person.
The only difference is that in euthanasia, there is mercy and consent involved while in murder there is none (Tulloch 82).
If murder is prohibited by law because people take matters into their own hands and kill others, then euthanasia should also be banned because doctors take matters into their own hands and kill their patients even if there is consent from the patients and their families or relatives.
Lastly, the continued improvements and innovations in the field of medicine and health care make euthanasia illogical to be implemented as an option.
It is a huge waste if we use those money and resources to lengthen the lives of those who have an incurable disease and want to die themselves rather than saving the lives of the ones with a curable ailment.
When we put those patients who ask for euthanasia to death, then the waiting list for each hospital will shorten. This reality does not intimidate the mature Christian.The believer recognizes the opportunity to serve others is limited but nonetheless significant.Then, the health care money of each country, the hospital beds, and the energy of the doctors can be used on the ones who can be cured, and can get back to normal and able to continue contributing to the society.Isn’t this a better way of using money and resources rather than unnaturally extend those incurable people’s lives?Personally, I believe that euthanasia should be legalized if it is voluntary. First of all, euthanasia saves money and resources.The amount of money for health care in each country, and the number of beds and doctors in each hospital are limited.Secondly, to numerous people, quality of life is more important than the length of the life.The patients who request euthanasia are going through unbearable pain that others who had never gone through it won’t understand.The Hippocratic Oath helps the doctors to realize how important their responsibilities are to the people in terms of their health.This oath also provides an assurance to the people that they can trust their doctors and be assured that they will do whatever is necessary to help them deal with their health problems.
