“ The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, then what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing in between.” (Mother Teresa) Today, in our country and in all countries, we fight for world peace. We strive to ensure the safety and welfare of our families and friends, and when something as tragic as death or injury befalls them, we tend to wish we could’ve done more. Every minute, at least 26 beating hearts are stopped by abortion. That leaves thousands of innocent infants dead and forgotten in less than a day. If killing billions of children is okay, then so must be any other crime. In the heavy struggle for peace, there are those who would selflessly give their lives for others and those who would rather send someone else to the grave, in order to save their reputation. Advocates for abortion are these people, the ones that will raise the thin line between love and hate to a whole other level, the ones that will ultimately push our chances of world peace farther and farther away, the ones that in the end, will make us feel as if we had a chance to do something more, yet didn’t because we were always told to see things the way others told us to. And for what? Because the woman who made her choice, forgot that there was harsh consequences to dumb mistakes. This is the face of this Country. The fact that we make stupid decisions only to fall into a deeper hole, and then realise what we did wasn’t the best thing we could have done. Taking life away from the most innocent beings on this earth is horrible and inhumane. Abortion should not only be made illegal here in the US but in countries all over the world. The first reason as to why abortion should be made illegal is because Abortion is not moral and it shouldn’t be for a woman to decide when her child lives and when it dies. Every year, at least 6 million women become pregnant and almost half are not planned. More than 1.6 million of those

Abortion: The Right Choice
Due to unwanted pregnancies and financial distress, many children are often mistreated and neglected which leads to the idea of abortion as the right decision. Mistreatment and neglect to the child may occur from the mother because the child resembles his or her father, which will be a continuous reminder of what happened (Meehan, Mary 1). It is also not right for a woman to have to go through full-term pregnancy….
The topic I chose is Euthanasia. Euthanasia has two sides, a positive and a negative, which I will discuss and elaborate on.
Euthanasia is often called “mercy killing”. It is intentionally making someone die, rather than allowing that person to die naturally. It is sometimes the act of ending someone’s life, who is terminally ill, or is suffering in severe pain. Euthanasia is mostly illegal in the world today. Euthanasia can be considered a form of suicide, if the person afflicted with the problem….
it should be legal to those who are in a vegetative state, severely hopeless, and wish to no longer live. Euthanasia is the act of killing or permitting the death of a hopelessly sick or injured individuals in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy. (Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary 11th Ed) We all have freedom of choice so those who insist on having euthanasia should have the right to receive it.
Some religious peoples views believe it is not god's way to end a life in such a way….
Live to die
Death is a part of life experience, and life experience is the reality one can bravely face. For death, to be precise, facing death is what a person experience. Oganda from “The Rain Came” by Grace Ogot has to face death in order to save her people. In “ A Woman Like Me” by Xi Xi, the narrator has faced her parents’ death when she was young and make up the face of the dead people at work. No one can actually experience death because dead is dead and there is no feelings. As for life….
The American Civil Liberties Union stated in its 1996 amicus brief in Vacco v. Quill that:
"The right of a competent, terminally ill person to avoid excruciating pain and embrace a timely and dignified death bears the sanction of history and is implicit in the concept of ordered liberty. The exercise of this right is as central to personal autonomy and bodily integrity as rights safeguarded by this Court's decisions relating to marriage, family relationships, procreation, contraception….
The Right to Die
Introduction: Imagine to have to depend on another to feed, clothe, bathe, and even get you out of bed on a day to day basis. Or even imagine having a chronic and extremely painful illness, would you want to have the right to ask your doctor to end your suffering? Euthanasia” is a broad term for mercy killing—taking the life of a hopelessly ill or injured individual in order to end his or her suffering.
Specific propose: To inform my audience about the moral implications….
Right to Die Overview
What is the right to die? The right to die is also called euthanasia, which is also known as assisted suicide. Euthanasia means that someone has taken a deliberate action with the intention of ending a life to relieve unstoppable suffering. Some may say it is known as ending one’s life in a painless manner, while others would disagree because a reference should be included on the unstoppable suffering.
There are two main classifications of assisted suicide: Voluntary euthanasia….
The Right to Die
In today’s society, the rapid and dramatic development of medicine and technology has allowed us to save more lives than was ever possible in the past. Medicine enabled us the means to cure or to reduce the suffering of people afflicted with diseases that were once fatal or painful. At the same time, however, medical technology has given us the power to sustain the lives (or, some would say, prolong the deaths) of patients whose physical and mental capabilities cannot….

Right to Die
When an individual decides that he or she no long want to live because of death soon to be or a serious illness some states will allow the right to die. The right to die does not mean they will just give up on life and passed but is assisted in some way, which could be assistance from a doctor. Throughout this essay I will cover what the right to die means, what states allow and do not allow and what is used to assist….
The phrase “The right to die” means the ethical or institutional entitlement of the individual to commit suicide or to undergo voluntary euthanasia.( Right to die, - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, 6 April 2012) It is one of the topics that has been debated over centuries. It starts from the 1950s, which arise from a small group of thinkers and writers in the United States and Europe, they began to argue about the choice that allows the patients to end their life by themselves in the case of surviving….
