Topic : Shoud we assisted suicide be legalized ?

Side : Assisted suicide should be legalized。

Dear Mr President, Friends of the other debate, my friends: Hello everybody!

As is known to all , assisted suicide generally refers to a practice in which the physician provides a patient with a lethal dose of medication, upon the patient's request, which the patient intends to use to end his or her own life.

The most well-known method of assisted suicide is Euthanasia. In China, Euthanasia means, when the incurable patient nearly dying, suffering with extremely pain for both spiritual and physical, if the patient and his or her families ask for ending life and the doctors allowed, the patient could get death in a humanistic way. So we can safely conclude that Euthanasia or assisted suicide is not killing people, but helping them getting rid of the intolerable suffering. Some people hold the opinion that assisted suicide is not considerable due to the fact that life is valuable than any substances, but we think assisted suicide should be legalized and put into practice because it will benefits all people involved. we will talk about what are the advantages about assisted suicide.

First, assisted suicide can release the pain of the dying patient who suffers terribly from the incurable disease. We often hear from the news, that some patients in hospital ending their lives through suicide. We can have a reasonable guess that before they died, most time they were suffering from the unbearable pain. If we use drugs to make them live in the painful world ,will they appreciate when they miss the chance to end their painful life? I don't think so!

Second, assisted suicide will also reduce the great financial pressure for the families on living, because a great deal of money has to be spent in delaying the life of the dying. In some poor areas in China, the medical coverage doesn’t so efficient to reach some of there, and the people are so poor that they cannot even eat theirs fill. In this case, assisted suicide may be a feasible method. Euthanasia may let the senior patients dying without suffering, and also lessen the financial pressure of the whole family.

Third, we believe respecting the decision of the patients themselves is the real human rights. citizens not only have the rights to choose how to live, but also have the rights of choosing to die, but that should be in a specified condition. The specified condition is an unusual treat to lives without prejudice to the country, the society, and other’s benefits.

As a result, We think a comp
romise method is testable, is using assisted suicide only for the “Hard Cases”. The “hard case”is when the pain of a patient is resistant to effective alleviation, and the patient is suffering in misery so much or even begging to die, assisted suicide is practicable.

As a result, We think a compromise method is testable, is using assisted suicide only for the “Hard Cases”. The “hard case”is when the pain of a patient is resistant to effective alleviation, and the patient is suffering in misery so much or even begging to die, assisted suicide is practicable.

So We hold the point that assisted suicide should be legalized.

Thank you!
