RE: What do you understand about euthanasia? Does euthanasia have a place in modern medicine?
First things first, what is euthanasia? This is the term given to describe actions taken to deliberately end someone’s life, often to relieve suffering. There are many different types of euthanasia, such as active euthanasia, passive euthanasia, voluntary euthanasia and involuntary euthanasia
Start with legality, if you know it, since it is the most clear cut. Currently, in the UK active euthanasia and assisted suicide is against the law. However in Belgium, Luxembourg and Holland, active euthanasia is legal. In countries such as Switzerland and Germany, active euthanasia is illegal but assisted suicide and passive euthanasia are both legal. Make sure keep up to date with any changes
