Euthanasia: The Ultimate Choice If you was faced with a choice for a love one that means life or death could you do it? Would you let that person who is terminally ill keep on living or would you let the doctors pull the plug? I am one hundred percent against Euthanasia for the fact it is downright murder. I’m against Euthanasia because it is assisted suicide. Euthanasia conflicts with my moral and religious beliefs. Everyone has a right to live wither that person is terminally ill or not.

I understand that families don’t want to see their love ones who are terminally ill suffer, but it is best to see them go naturally. Euthanasia is a horrible choice for any terminally ill patient who wants someone to help them commit suicide. Second, I am against Euthanasia for the fact it is assisted suicide; it is a bad decision-making choice on the doctor’s part. (In the New York Times, the
