Ewart was an American who had gotten a disease that causes his organs to shrink for a long time. He chose to die by euthanasia, to end his pain of his own accord finally. He said that Motoneuron disease made him tired and he had no will to live. If he was in so much pain by the disease, he would still want to live, but there were too much pain. From Steven Ertelt’s article, we knew that Ewart said, if he chose to live, he would suffer illness, but it did not mean he could cure the disease and have a new life (2008).
"I want to have a quick death without suffering, at home surrounded by my family" Diane Pretty suffered from motor neurons disease which meant that as the disease worsened it made it difficult for her to move or communicate easily. She wanted her husband to help end her life but it is illegal in the UK as it is classed as assisted suicide. She took her case to court using the human rights act but it was turned down. She was left to suffer until her condition deteriorated and she died aged 43. Should people like Diane Pretty be allowed to suffer?

Patrick McMurphy is an ornery, loud, idiosyncratic individual. He believes he should act whichever way he feels like. This turns around to have a negative impact on his life however, because of his rash, exaggerated actions he ﬁnds him self being scrutinized. He still sticks to his own ways though, which Bromden points out when he says, “Maybe that’s it he never gave the Combine a chance [..] because a moving target is hard to hit”(92). McMurphy doesn’t let ’the Combine’ of people outside the ward get him down or change who he really is.
His description of events can be somewhat unreliable as he is unable to see the real truths that lie before him. As he narrates, readers are confronted with his peculiarities - whether it is not liking to be touched, his fear of germs, strangers and crowds to his inability to eat foods with particular colours. However, through Christopher's authorial voice, his description of events in his life, and in particular, his description of his oddities those seem completely 'normal' to him, make him an interesting and fascinating narrator. As he can be proven to be an unreliable narrator as he is incapable of lying (and understanding lies) and this limits his

As his primary motive of the conspiracy is to get rid of Caesar because of jealousy towards his power, he fails to plan for what happens after. This can be
Originally, I thought that it is because my grandmother is getting older, and the body will inevitably be some discomfort, so I didn’t really care about it. However I ask my parents about my grandmother’s state, their faces always change and I can easily understand the sadness from my parent’s faces, and it makes me very confused. Few months later, I finally knew the truth by overhearing my parent’s small conversation. Grandmother’s illness was from terminal cancer, it’s a fundamentally incurable medical disease. After I heard the news, I started to recall everything about my grandmother.
I think that parents of Amy should be punished for their frivolity. They let her die, so Hermansons should be charged as a murder. Maybe they wanted the best, they thought that praying would help her but that wasn't real the best. They should know that praying can help with many illnesses, but most of them are not treated with only praying. They should do everything that is possible to let their child live, and choose the way of treating illnesses when she will be a grown
