When we talk about euthanasia, it is important to distinguish a few terms:
Some of the arguments against euthanasia are:
Voluntary euthanasia may lead to involuntary euthanasia and the killing of people who are thought undesirable: Proper palliative care makes euthanasia unnecessary Allowing euthanasia will lead to less good care for the terminally ill Allowing euthanasia undermines the commitment of doctors and nurses to saving lives Allowing euthanasia will discourage the search for new cures and treatments for the terminally ill. Euthanasia undermines the motivation to provide good care for the dying, and good pain relief Euthanasia gives too much power to doctors Patients who are abandoned by their families may feel euthanasia is the only solution People might recover from an illness against all odds. Doctor’s diagnosis might be wrong . Some of the reasons to defend euthanasia are:
People have a right to decide when they want to die; It gives people the ability to die with dignity; Relatives are spared the agony of watching their loved ones suffer a slow and painful death; It gives survivors of the deceased some comfort knowing their loved one did not suffer any more than was absolutely necessary.

Luxembourg passed legalized euthanasia in 2008. in other words. incapable of moving all his members.Countries where euthanasia is legal: Albania was one of the first European nations to allow legalized euthanasia in 1999. Belgium and the Netherlands both legalized euthanasia in the early 21st century. . she was arrested and treated as a criminal. people have the right to choose their own fate.
