Time to die Weekend-Engagement


The question of whether it is ethical to end the life of an ill human to limit suffering is one of the most contentious issues in medical ethics and for the person approving it, we know. Some called it assisted suicide!

In my opinion, ending the life of a terminally ill person who is experiencing unbearable suffering is acceptable.

Why you might ask is because I don't want to see others suffer, and if the ill person has sanity and chooses to go through with it, we should respect that, but if he is not sane, then it should be with the agreement of the doctor and family if they have any.

I also agree with euthanasia for my pet or a loved one if they can't be cured and are feeling immense pain. If they want to be euthanized, I would feel pain, but I would respect their choice.

I don't wanna be a selfish jerk and keep them close to me in pain just because I don't want to be apart from them. I would feel pain, but in the long run, I might be happy cause I don't have to watch my loved one die slowly while I wouldn't be able to do anything to ease their suffering.

Well, these are my thoughts. It's easier said than done. I'm not really a mentally strong person when it comes to things like death.

Do you guys know of ''Hisashi Ouchi, who got radiation exposure in the Tokaimura nuclear plant and died of cardiac arrest after 35 days of treatment and suffering?

I have read about him; he died slowly as his cells and DNA got destroyed and there was no hope of saving him. Doctors and family members kept him alive to treat him, but he died. I am not judging anyone, but I would like to die if I were him.
