LIKE THE RIGHT TO SPEECH, RELIGION, BEAR ARMS.THE RIGHT TO DIE Sushmita Das , Ben Hynum & Dianna
FACTS • People in US have been dying with suffering and pain. But there is no one there to help them or to save them. • Since 1981 nearly more than 20 million people die in US and the number is increasing. • They go through all that pain everyday and every hour until they die.
LETS LOOK OUT FOR THEM • The only one thing that they want is to peacefully end their life. • They want to get away from the pain and suffering • Its time now that we all come together and look out for those people • Lets give them their right The Right to Death
Euthanasia Euthanasia is the intentional killing by act or omission of a dependent human being for his or her alleged benefit.
ISSUE Many are suffering from disabilities and incurable diseases, which are causing them pain. Because of this people want to end their life, but they cannot without euthanasia. Right to End their Life
TERRI SCHIAVO's STORY In 1990 Terri suffered from a heart attack, which left her brain damaged and totally unable to take care of herself. For 13 years, Terri did not leave her bed. Her husband fought against her family to have her feeding tube removed and let Terri die quickly. The leading steps to this much struggled and sought out debate are rather horrifying and cruel. Terri was twice granted the right to death, starved for a few days and then hooked back onto life support at her parents will.
TERRI’S STORY CONT…… • In June 2003, Schiavo’s husband won the right to have Terri’s tube removed but after President Bush’s interference (pushed forth by popular support against Terri’s death) the tube was re-instated. • Terri’s tube was eventually removed (for the third time) and thirteen days later she died of dehydration. • Had euthanasia been legal Terri could have died instantly rather than by an almost two weeks of dehydration and starvation. Terri’s case has lead pro-euthanasia activists one step closer to achieving the legalizing of voluntary euthanasia.
If the Right To Die • If US had the law Terri would have died without all the sufferings that she had for 13 years in her bed. • She suffered almost 13 years and still she died with pain. • Now, the question is what's the problem to legalize such a law that could have helped Terri to die in peace. • That Lady could have died with least amount of pain and sorrow • Doctors kept on removing in and taking off medical support. • Removing the pipe the first time wasn’t enough they did 3 times.
IF THERE IS A LAW IN STATE OF OREGON, IT SHOULD ALSO BE A LAW THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY
Questions Behind why we should do this? • Death is a Private Matter • People should have the right to live or die • Ending sufferings among the millions that die each year because of incurable diseases.
