A Philosophical Reassessment of Euthanasia: Changing Societal Perceptions
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper I will argue for two main points, supported through different approaches to the problem with euthanasia, and I will develop a new social outlook towards the topic. The first argument will focus on why we should not take heroic measures to extend the lives of patients in persistent vegetative states (PVS), those being the ones with a low chance of survival. The second argument will focus on our blatant violations against humanity when dealing with the decisions of euthanizing patients of any situation.
