Euthanasia: Knowing the Facts
Card Image

Euthanasia, also known as mercy killing, is the act or practice of putting to death. People who are suffering from a painful and incurable disease or a physically incapacitating disorder. Without causing them any pain, or of allowing them to die by withholding treatment. Or withdrawing artificial life-sustaining measures. Because most legal systems do not make a special provision for it. It is usually seen as either suicide (if carried out by the patient himself). But rather murder (if carried out by someone else) (if performed by another)..
