Is it okay for man to be able to choose if they want to die or not? If a person lives in pain and torment every day of their life whether the person is facing death, or they are in constant pain every day, is it okay for people to deny them death on their own free will? I believe that you have to question what you know that is right and what is wrong to be able to truly know if euthanasia is morally right or not.

I believe in Socrates point of view in the case of euthanasia, he believes that humans should strive to make the morally upright and correct decisions, and therefore would lead to the idea of mitigation of human suffering.

There are many diseases and different issues in our society today, and we should be able to allow human beings their right to choose to fight it or to let go and end their pain and suffering. Doctors should be willing and able to practice and not fear trouble with assisting the people who request and are in need of assisted suicide. Doctors practice should always be in their concern for the patient they are trying to help, and there is only so much medically you can do for a person and when a patient is done trying to fight their
