We need to realize that by deciding to take the option of euthanasia, the patient’s family is not killing him. They are in fact helping the individual get rid of the pain he is in and letting him die peacefully.
It is common knowledge to all that different individuals usually possess the power to take put their own lives by way of suicide. However, we should also take into consideration the fact that both Suicide and euthanasia are two different things. Suicide is a tragic act that is committed by the individual and is not a legalized issue (Euthanasia.com, 2010). Euthanasia on the other hand usually has reasons behind it. It is not committed by the individual out of his or her own free will but out of the medical condition that he is in.
