Arguments for euthanasia
The elite will determine who lives and dies. If euthanasia is legal rules and regulations will have to be put in place to give medical officials guidelines. This would mean the criteria of life and death fall into the hands of those in power. Throughout history this system has lead to abuse and oppression.
There is no such thing as a life not worth living. Death should always be the last option, life is a miracle of nature and a miracle of the universe. Misery, sorrow and suffering should be braced out of respect for life. To quote Dylan Thomas: “Don’t go gentle into that good night, rage, rage against the dying of the light…”
It will lead to the mistrust of doctors. The doctors primary role is a healer and preserver of life. If they become administers of death as well you will always have the thought in you mind that you don’t know their true intentions. Trust is very important in the doctor patient relationship.
