Reflect on the analysis of the sin of suicide and, thus, euthanasia from the topic readings. Do you agree? Why or why not? Refer to the lecture and topic readings in your response.
Example 1 Denise As defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Suicide is death caused by injuring oneself with the intent to die” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2022). Euthanasia has become a controversial topic. Euthanasia is the intention to bring about one’s death to aid from pain and suffering. Many see this as suicide (and as a sin) since it involves the intent to die. On the contrary, others may see it as what euthanasia stands for, as a “good death” (as it helps with pain and suffering) (Hoehner, 2020).
In our book, Hoehner goes into the difference between accepting death and precipitating death. I agree with Hoehners statements. There is a difference between bringing about one’s death through lethal doses of a certain medication and rejecting to receive further treatment for an illness or disease that has an extremely low prognosis (Hoehner, 2020). I do not believe in medical professionals deliberately causing a patient to die (active euthanasia) however, I do believe that rejecting treatment to alleviate pain and suffering (passive euthanasia) is ok under certain circumstances and considering all factors. These factors include the patient’s wishes, the family’s wishes, and the patient’s prognosis.

Example 2 chisha Euthanasia is the intentional causing or hastening of death of a patient for positive reasons such as the alleviation of pain and suffering (Hoehner, 2020). Active euthanasia is a type of assisted suicide in which a patient is actively put to death by taking some action, such as giving them fatal amounts of medication (Hoehner, 2020). Passive euthanasia, on the other hand, occurs when medical therapies that are widely available and plainly would enable a nonterminal patient to live much longer are withheld with the direct aim of ending or hastening a patient’s life (Hoehner, 2020). In my opinion, I do not disagree with euthanasia. In the previous discussions, I mentioned how I believe respecting a patient’s autonomy is the most crucial aspect of bioethics. I am aware that as healthcare professionals, it is our responsibility to look after our patients, but when they have endured significant suffering and pain as a result of a terminal illness, they may believe that euthanasia is the only option for them to find peace. I don’t see anything wrong with it as long as the patient wants to do it. Even though Christian beliefs oppose euthanasia, I don’t think it’s appropriate to impose or force those beliefs upon a patient who doesn’t share those beliefs and simply wants to put an end to their ongoing suffering.

Example 3 Gina Suicide and euthanasia are two very sensitive and delicate subjects. According to Hoehner (2020), a Christians’ worldview does not accept the act of an assisted death. I agree that these two controversial topics are a sin and should not be executed out, at least not by healthcare professionals. Those in the field are there to care and heal, just like God wanted. Humans are created as the image of God (White, 2020) so why participate in such act? I understand why someone would want to be euthanized. There are many terminal illnesses that bring so much suffering and it may be draining. Their easiest way out is to die with dignity. The only one who determines when their time has come to an end is God. It may be difficult to comprehend why so much suffering, but those that have faith in God remember that His timing is perfect, and He never makes mistakes. Hoehner, P. J. (2020).
