Cause And Effect Essay On Life Insurance

Good Essays
Once you’ve experienced a stroke, it’s common to see the world through different lens. By nature, we ignore signs of our mortality, until we experience a life-threatening ordeal like a stroke. After such an ordeal, it makes sense to consider life insurance as a way to protect your family.
However, after a stroke, your options for getting approved for life insurance dwindle significantly. You should AVOID applying for life insurance with every company with the goal of getting a reduced rate for life insurance.
With that out of the way, here’s the silver lining; by remaining informed, you can learn the ins and outs of what insurance companies are looking for when it comes to writing policies for stroke survivors. Armed with information about insurance ratings for stroke survivors,

Congratulate yourself for being a survivor!
Never believe you are alone. There are millions of other people who are in the same place.
Likewise, you are not alone when it comes to finding a life insurance policy that fits your situation.
Do Life Insurance Companies View You Negatively Following a Stroke?
Your health is a determining factor in your application for life insurance. As such, life insurance underwriters will consider the type of stroke you had to assess your application.
Mini-Strokes Also Known as Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)
If you’ve experienced a TIA, then you had a temporary blockage in an artery. While the blockage was present, your neurological activity was impaired. This impairment may have resulted in dizziness, speech impairments, weakness, and blurred vision.
With no permanent damage to note, medical professionals will document observations they’ve made while they’ve talked to you, instead of conducting tests. However, a TIA doesn’t mean you are in the clear. To the contrary, a TIA is considered a precursor to a Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA), also known as a full

    Medical professionals attending to their patients would provide the patient with either a lethal dose of medicine or a prescription for a lethal amount to do in their own time. The second type of euthanasia is passive euthanasia, or the refusal of life sustaining treatment through a spoken or written living will (Funk & Wagnalls, 2016). This is often seen when people are in a coma or vegetative state and cannot speak on their own behalf. They rely on their living will to speak for them, stating their desire to be removed from the devices keeping them alive when there is little chance for them to return to normal…

    Terminally ill patients are already dying-- suffering their way through their end of time and prolonging their agony. They should have the right to end their lives peacefully, so they can stop their suffering and end their life the way they wanted to. People’s choices are up to them, not us. We can’t control what goes on in life so why should we judge a person who wants to end their live on good terms. Personal beliefs, religious beliefs, and opinions all stop Physician-Assisted Suicide (PAS)from being legal in many countries and states.…

    Passive euthanasia is quite common in medical practice. Passive euthanasia is a refusal of using life-sustaining treatment. It also involves stopping the treatment. In these cases, intravenous fluids and artificial feeding should be stopped according to the patient’s wishes. Moreover, doctors are not allowed to try to resurrect the patient if his or her heart or lungs stop working.…

    Even though an individual may be free to commit suicide, society definitely doesn’t want to encourage it or allow others to help, especially since that help can easily turn into a homicide. On the other hand, there are periods when an individual doesn’t actively take their own life, they only decide to no longer work towards sustaining it. Therefore implicating that suicide isn’t as black and white as one may have previously assumed. A patient may humbly decide to let nature takes its course and allow themselves to die from their disease; this can be more simply defined as passive suicide. As previously mentioned all patients have the right to actively refuse or request medical treatment.…

    If death is destined due to sickness, then the patient should be able to decide whether they want a peaceful death or a painful death. Patients who are suffering from an incurable disease, or any kind of disability do not deserve to suffer and legalizing euthanasia can help cure their suffering since not many want to live after a period of time when the patient and the doctor knows that it is too late and nothing further can be done to improve the patient’s condition, or relieve their pain. She could not end her life on her own terms, so instead she suffered: a crippling stroke; massive blood loss after an angiogram; dialysis; constant hospitalization; and mistreatment by staff. Month after month, she sank further into despair (Hayes). This excerpt is from an article where its author Mathew Hayes describes the condition and suffering that his grandmother had to go through before she reached the end of it.…

    What is rejected is the freedom to cause death whether by suicide or by assisting in one.” The community should support suffering people’s decision to live on rather than encouraging them to end their life so the pain can stop. In other words, when a physician is legally allowed to end one’s life with one’s consent, it means that the physician takes part in determining what that life is worth or whether this life is meaningful enough to sustain. This principle does not guarantee protection for powerless and voiceless people, the very young and the very old as well as the racial minorities. Thirdly, the author also articulates that a physician could make mistake in determining if a patient’s disease could be cured or not. The mistake could stem from research interests, desire for organs, and mistakes in diagnosis.…

    Physician-Assisted Suicide There is one thing that you can be certain of your entire life; you are going to die. We had no choice to be born, so should we have no choice when we die? Oftentimes we do not even know when we are going to die, in instances such as car accidents or murders. Sometimes we do know, and the death process can be long and drawn out, with pain, suffering, and mountains of medical bills. When talking about having the choice of life or death, I do not mean the choice to commit suicide because some problem in life leaves you feeling like you do not wish to live.…

    Now, the patient knows the treatments are not working. The patient also knows she is leaving her family in debt after she is gone. Therefore, the best option to her is to commit suicide so she does not suffer and the family will not be in financial debt. Since assisted suicide is not legal, she uses an unreliable method of death. Micah Issitt and Heather Newton write about the untrustworthy options for death: "Acting independently of a physician 's advice, patients may choose unreliable methods to end their lives, such as drug overdoses, firearms, and asphyxiation" (Issitt and Newton 4).…

    O’Neill also argues that making euthanasia legal would replace “love with law”. If it is legalized, euthanasia can no longer be considered mercy killing. It would replace a decision that should be made with the consultation of family and doctors with one that is monitored by the government and death-sanctioning lawyers. Ultimately, a government does not care about the patient’s life, adding them into the equation would diminish the love and compassion a terminally ill patient should feel at the end of their life. Legalizing euthanasia would only cause more pain as it would introduce more unneeded stress to the patient.…

    They now believe their purpose is to save lives rather than to do what their patient wishes (Cole 116). This causes an incredible strain on the doctor-patient relationship, because the dying may want to simply be euthanized and have a “good death” while they can, while doctors are often legally obligated to do everything in their power to save a patient (Cole 116). This can cause pain, both mentally and physically. This is often the decision people with terminal cancer are faced with. They have the option to proceed with aggressive treatment which might temporarily cure the disease and will surely cause them pain, or to simply live with their disease and pain medications until they die or are euthanized.…
