Therefore, this is an extremely controversial topic, which has raised a great deal of debate all over the world. Life seems to be the most obvious answer, if to choose between life and death. Nevertheless, in the case when the euthanasia may be voluntary, I would like to highlight the human right to be in charge of their life. Maimed, bedridden people feel a burden for their relatives. Humble and disabled, they want at least to leave this world peacefully and to die with dignity.
War has left a great part of humankind starving, homeless, emotionally and physically unstable. War is an incredibly disastrous act that should only take place when all other alternatives have been exhausted. All nations have a very intricate relationship which entails complicated solutions and negotiation along with many persons who have opposed views and cultures. Wars are ongoing for a variety of reasons ranging from: extended area of land, inner power struggle, natural resource, and religious beliefs. Although religion gives a person meaning to life, it guides people into the right direction, comforts people in times of sadness, and connects people together.
A vibrant selection That we will all die as we know, even though many do not want to talk about it. The only question is when and how. We all take responsibility for our own lives. Do we not also take responsibility for our own death if given the opportunity? In politics, the question of euthanasia really taboo laid.
This culture is one of many cultures who put there faith in past on beliefs and go to seemingly horrific measures carrying them out. This article was frightening as well as uplifting to me. What was frightening to me is the fact that in the U.S these disturbing rituals take place. As I already stated as an outsider it is very difficult trying to make sense of these customs in terms of my society. I was being quite ethnocentric.
Another point is that you may not agree with euthanasia unless it happens to someone close to you who suffers for the last weeks of their life which might change your perspective. There are also reasons as to why euthanasia should not be allowed these include that it is a form of assisted suicide which is viewed as murder. Another well argued point is that many people believe that if euthanasia was allowed then everyone would start to depend heavily on it and use it in all cases instead of seeking what action may be the best course. For Roman Catholics their religion simply state that it is not allowed they believe that human life is a sacred gift from God to be cherished and respected because every human being is created in the image and likeness of God. They also believe that in heeding God's command, "Thou shall not kill", we recognize that we cannot end of our lives or the lives of others as we please.
However, different religious beliefs cause different perspectives on what is unethical. The authors of Cultural Anthropology: the Human Challenge (p. 293) point out that “Frequently it is religion that legitimizes the political order and leadership. Religious beliefs may influence or provide authoritative approval to customary rules and laws” (Haviland, Prins, McBride, & Walrath, 2011). This explains why so many of wars are centered on religion. Religious organizations have caused some of the worst social conflict.
This issue was selected due to its high relevance in today’s society as it is a very controversial issue that is currently being addressed in many governments on how to prevent this issue from reoccurring in the future. From writing this poem, I hope to bring understanding to this very complicated issue and cut through the sanitized half told stories of what these kids go through and describe raw events detailed in reports from liberated child soldiers. This controlling idea that this poem has demonstrated is the repletion of the idea of sympathy, sadness and the absence of love and compassion in their lives that most take for granted; furthermore anger at those who inflict
As well as this, involuntary euthanasia refers to taking ones life against the person’s expressed wish. Death is a significant aspect of religion, and is extensively considered in relation to what is morally and ethically right. Each religion gives their own significance and explanation to death, and each try to find a place for death within human experience. Basically, religion provides understanding to those both facing death, and those left behind. The importance religion gives to death therefore creates a strong reaction to euthanasia.
Additional pre-trial time is needed to impose a death sentence as well as the involvement of more experts, more attorneys and additional trials (Dieter). All of these procedures require additional expenditures which make a death trial a costly venture. The second argument that speaks against the efficiency of the death penalty is its obvious immorality and contradiction to all norms of humanity and justice. Execution is actually a judicial murder, and murder definitely goes against proclaimed values of human life, even if it involves the life of a murderer. Stated succinctly, the death
To this day, one of the biggest controversial topics that continue to spark endless discussions is the public approval of euthanasia. Euthanasia which is commonly known as “assisted suicide” is the deliberate action of ending a life to relieve continuous pain and suffering (Nordqvist, 2010). This has become a complicated global issue, as various cultures battle with the list of ethical, religious, and legal factors that play a major part in the act. Many see euthanasia as a benefit not only for the patient, but for the patient’s family as well. In this case, the practice is able to end one’s life in a peaceful manner, while a financial and emotional burden can also be lifted off of the family members.
