Active voluntary euthanasia is commonly referred to as a means of "killing" someone (as opposed to "letting someone die".) To define it more specifically, it is when at the request of the patient a physician administers a medication or treatment, with the intent of ending that patient's life. Philosopher James Rachels makes the case that it is, in some instances, morally acceptable. The following essay will explain Rachels' argument and provide some personal feedback as a conclusion.
