Euthanasia Euthanasia is one of the subjects that have faced intense debate over time, the legalization of euthanasia have been debated for many years with different views presented in terms of ethical and legal consideration for both patients and health care providers.

Another argument against euthanasia, this time a practical one, is that euthanasia is not needed when proper palliative care is available.
