A Persuasive Essay on: Euthanasia

             Should people have the choice to end their own life? "Euthanasia: the intentional
             killing by act or omission of a dependant human being for his or her alleged belief, 
             (www.euthanasia.com). An extensive issue that has been debated numerous times in
             many parts of the world over the past few years is "allowing doctors to assist patients
             who want to commit suicide . Euthanasia has already been legalized in the Netherlands,
             Belgium and a few parts of the United States of America. These countries have different
             points of view than several other countries. Euthanasia should not be legalized for a
             number of reasons. One reason euthanasia should not be legalized is it could lead to

             euthanasia to be legal who knows what other immoral and unethical laws may occur.

             legalized it eventually leads to involuntary euthanasia. In the Netherlands (where
             euthanasia was legalized) during 1990 there were over 3,000 cases of doctor assisted
             suicide. After considerable medical research, it was shown that over 1,000 of them were
             involuntary. In Holland, a child was murdered by doctors for having abnormal genitalia
             and a woman was murdered for "mental suffering . Countless doctors recommend
             suicide to various patients and drive them towards it. In multiple cases
