Famous People Who Died Of Euthanasia
Euthanasia is a Greek term that translates to ‘good death’; it basically is the right for someone to choose the right of his own death. Every country has a different law on this subject that they strictly abide by. As per the British House of Lords, euthanasia is “a deliberate intervention undertaken with the express intention of ending a life, to relieve intractable suffering.” However in Netherlands and Flanders, it is believed to be the “termination of life by a doctor at the request of a patient”. There are three different types of Euthanasia, voluntary, non-voluntary, or involuntary. While the Voluntary one is legal in some countries, the non-voluntary and involuntary euthanasia is out rightly illegal in all countries. It is a topic that has enamored a lot of researchers; it is one of the most widely researched topics in bioethics.
