An argumentative paper defending assisted suicide and supporting the reasons for legalizing assisted suicide. The author discusses the moral and ethical issues concerning euthanasia.

From the Paper:

"30 years ago, assisted suicide was not a concern of our public. It wasn't't talked about, and no one consciously recognized that this was going on. It wasn't't really until between 1990 and 1998 that assisted suicide was brought to our attention by the trial of Jack Kevorkian. Assisted suicide is said to be; when one person provides another person with the tools to take their own life, knowing that this is the intent. That would be like when a doctor inserts the IV with a lethal injection, and the patient pushes the button. On a quick note, assisted suicide should not be confused with euthanasia, where another person delivers the fatality to the person to be euthanized (Euthanasia, 1)."
