In my research of Euthanasia, you can pretty much consider euthanasia as basically suicide because it gives the person the option to decide how and the time when their life should end, even if it is their own decision or someone else such as a family member or a physician that makes the decision because their unable to make the choice to end their life. There are many types of euthanasia; Voluntary euthanasia, which is assisted suicide, Involuntary euthanasia, which is the decision to end someone’s life based on if it is for the best, Active euthanasia, which is the lethal dose of a drug to end someone’s life, and there is Passive euthanasia, which is the decision to stop giving treatment to someone so that the person will die because they are not receiving the treatment they need to survive.
