Life, Death, and the Right to Choose

            Think about this, there is a person out in the world who has terminal cancer; in addition, they are suffering in pain every day, with the knowledge that they are going to die sooner rather than later. Euthanasia is moral for terminally ill cancer patients, because they should be able to die without suffering. What is euthanasia? (World Book Dictionary) defines "euthanasia" as, "n. 1 a painless killing, especially to end a painful and incurable disease; mercy killing" ("euthanasia"). Euthanasia is assisted suicide with the purpose to help one die who is in needless and unwanted pain. The patients who are seeking assisted suicide, are more often than not, suffering from a terminal disease, such as cancer. (Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary) defines "terminal" as, "having an illness that cannot be cured and that will soon lead to death" ("terminal"). There are many terminal diseases on this planet in which we live, but none running more rampant than cancer. What is cancer? According to (World Book dictionary), "cancer" is defined as, "n. 1 a very harmful growth in the body; malignant tumor. Cancer tends to spread and destroys the healthy tissues and organs of the body. Cancer is a change in the normal growth of cells, but the causes have not yet been fully determined" ("cancer"). Cancer is a disease that has high potential to be terminal. When cancer begins to spread like wild fire the results can be the destruction of otherwise normal healthy tissues and cells. When cancer enters an area of a body where it cannot be operated on, the end result is usually terminal.
             Section 1: Euthanasia in Cancer Patients is Justifiable.
             I was able to deduce that assisted suicide is moral, when I considered the teachings of Professor Brown as he explained to us to the concept known as deductive logic and the tools that comes with this concept.
