• Euthanasia should be legalized in the states but stronger safeguards and restrictions need to be put in place. Terminally ill patients with 6 months or less to live utilize the right to access the option to die.

    • Hi Kelsey,
      I really enjoyed reading this article about euthanasia. It is a topic not often discussed because of the stigma around assisted suicide. I agree that there should be further safeguards implemented for patients requesting this treatment, and I also agree that patients who are suffering from terminal illness should be allowed this option of dignified death. If you haven’t already, you should watch the movie Me Before You, as it touches on the topic of euthanasia and how it affects the lives of others. I like how you wove in quotes from professionals in the field of euthanasia to get multiple perspectives on the issue at hand. I look forward to seeing what else you will be writing, you did a great job.

    • Hi Kelsey,
      I thought that what you wrote was really intriguing. I think that the topic of assisted suicide being legal is the same as the topic of abortion or marijuana being legalized. Assisted Suicide is, in my opinion, is something that is beneficial because it can lessen the amount of suffering that a person has to go through with a terminal illness as you said in your article. I agree with you that assisted suicide should be legalized nationwide for that reason specifically. If someone who is terminally ill has a chance to go out of this world with dignity it should be provided for them.

    • Hey Kelsey! I just finished reading your post and I just want to say how amazing it was to hear another person share similar information as me. My first Youth Voices post was about assisted suicide and I haven’t seen one ever sense I posted it. I’m so happy to see other people finding the same topics as interesting as me!
