In this paper, various non-religious or moral arguments are made to object to the legalization of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide in Canada. The writer points out that some of the objections that are made are that it would harm the debilitated, that it would lead to a "slippery slope" of desensitization, that it is against the Hippocratic Oath, and that it detracts from modern advancements in palliative care and pain control.
From the Paper:"This essay was to be about an issue that had neither a religious or moral base. The topic that the paper will consider has both. Yet, the ways in which the topic will be considered will not base themselves on either religion or strict morality, instead using logic and fact to come to a place of agreement. This topic is euthanasia. With the American case of Terri Schiavo each and every day drawing more international media attention, with the divided and violent opposition to or adherence to euthanasia as a practice that is seen by so many, what better topic to look at in an academic and logical manner? This paper will make the argument that euthanasia should not be legalized in Canada."
