  • Arguments for/against passive euthanasia
    • For
      • Withholding or withdrawing treatment that has no useful purpose allows nature to take its course
      • Giving a high dose of morphine may shorten life, but its intention is to relieve pain
      • The law protects the majority of society from harmful consequences of allowing euthanasia
    • Against
      • Withholding or withdrawing treatment that just prolongs the suffering is cruel
      • Is relief of pain the only motive in giving morphine? If not, it just prolongs dying
      • Suicide is legal; not to allow disabled people help with dying is discrimination
