Voluntary euthanasia is a very contentious issue in today’s society. This is where a terminally ill patient’s life is ended at their request. The law allows doctors to withdraw treatment or administer high doses of pain-relieving drugs even though they expect this will result in death. However, euthanasia is still considered a serious crime.
Advocates of euthanasia argue that it prevents terminally-ill patients from pointlessly suffering and that it lets them die

large majority of terminations are comfortably decided by our present system there is no need to legalise euthanasia. To do this will open the right to a “good death” to the vagaries of theologians, legislators, medical practicioners, etc. who may be divorced from the realities of lying in a bed of pain, excreta and debasement!
