The rebuttal presupposes that an individual needs to wait for a hypothetical existence of a treatment being developed on an assumption that decisions that are finalized is not a justification for terminating a patient's life at one's explicit consent.
If decisions made in your life were to be stagnated each and every time in order for an opportunity to arise everytime, the basis for this principle would not be a good one at the very least.
Is treating the elderly also a waste of resources because they are nearing the end of their lives anyway?
I think that to describe palliative care as a "huge and ultimately wasteful drain on medical resources" is rather harsh!
Some can be cared for at home, or in special hospices.
If we stopped caring for the terminally ill at all where would we draw the line?There are a number of ideas that you can think about when you are asked to write a good argumentative essay on euthanasia in the US.It is important for you to make sure that you pay attention to this, and focus on how you can choose good titles.In this respect, of the practice of "Euthanasia", death is the ultimate goal of avoidance and thus a finalized decision of upholding pain until the very last minute of life in respect to waiting for a treatment outweighs the ultimate outcome of death.The opposition makes a claim that reversibility of a decision that may be regretted later due to it being finalized is better on these grounds, however, if life was controllable in all aspects and under all possible circumstances, we were able to scroll back on our decisions, what meaningful would arise out of the circumstances for which our decisions are made on?A person who undergoes euthanasia is usually terminally ill.Euthanasia can be carried out either by doing something, such as administering a lethal injection, or by not doing something necessary to keep the person alive (for example failing to keep their feeding tube going).It cannot be justified to deem that waiting for something which might or might not exist in a future to occur outweighs the prospect of pain.Wait for a miracle "cure", wait for a revolutionary science "discovery" to solve our problems, wait for a technological "innovation"..line of thought may be wise in some situations but not necessarily in the case of Euthanasia.It is not as if they are really ‘living’ during this time; they are merely waiting to die.They should have the right to avoid this kind of torturous existence and be allowed to die in a humane way. We take medical pills, we put up an umbrella to avoid having rain fall on us, we try to not live in a tribal manner like our ancestors where we deem ourselves to live a civilized life where we do not simply kill eachother and rape eachother because its the "natural conclusion" of our actions.
