Ethics Of Euthanasia/Physician-Assisted Suicide : 10 pages in length. The argument that has sent the world into a tailspin is whether or not people who are suffering from terminal or excruciatingly painful illnesses have the right to take their own lives with the help of physician-assisted suicide.

On the other hand, critics claim that the act of euthanasia is nothing more than a fabricated form of murder. Both sides have pertinent points to ponder when it comes to understanding and assessing the conflict, but euthanasia supporters have a significantly stronger argument.
