There have been many views on the process and thought of “euthanasia“; from people feeling that they are providing a civil justice and benevolent right, to thinking that its viewed as sympathetic murder. Though, one thing is certain about this process , people die, either by their own hands or by the hands of another. To me I feel people have a right to choose when they wish to end their lives, as long as hey do not intend to take others with them or force some type of burden upon others as a result. Since we are masters of our own bodies why are we allowing others to dictate what I may or may not do to it? The answer is simple society hates to have a lack of control, and euthanasia is one way that people take their own freedom into their own hands.
One man felt like he was compeled to help others. He talked with them and discussed their views on life and how his clients believed they fit in it. He even gave them a solution that would ease their worries and provide lasting peace. How did he do such things? He gave them DEATH. His name was Jack Kevorkian and he was later named “The Death Doctor“. The reason he became so famous was because he was a firm believer in euthanasia and the fact that he gave his clients the means to take their own life into their own hands by killing themselves. Although, his intentions where derived from a moralistically humble, caring, understanding place the manner in which he did his job raised eyebrows and shocked people from all around. No one had ever heard or seen someone give people a means to kill themselves all while fully aware of their own actions and who were “considered” mentally stable. I feel that what Dr. Kevorkian was right in the mind set that people should take more control of their lives and should be in control of their own bodies, he should have taken steps towards getting other to understand as well. Everyone has a right to choose how they live their life regardless of what others think or say, so why can’t death be the same way?
