One biggest controversy of this time is euthanasia. Euthanasia is inducing the painless death of a person for reasons assumed to be merciful. Countries had banned euthanasia today, but many people agreed with euthanasia. However, I insist euthanasia should not be practiced or legallized. Euthanasia is nothing but cold-blooded killing. It shortens life, and it is morally and ethically wrong; here are three reasons why it should not be in practiced

one reason not to choose euthanasia that A doctor cannot draw up a list of incurable illnesses; for example, patients suffering from so-called incurable diseases such as cancer and AIDS frequently are cured and live long, productive lives.

another important reason
Doctors do not always correctly estimate a patient’s power to recover; they should not have to make the terrible decision to kill a patient. This is a heavy responsibility for relatives too. Some relatives might even misuse their power to kill the patient for their own reasons and benefits.

Also, Many religions teach that it is wrong to take away human life; if we are reluctant to kill even murderers, we should be even more reluctant to kill innocent people.

There are many good reasons not to accept euthanasia as the an option
I believe that euthanasia relates to death just the same way abortion relates to the ending of a pregnancy before birth. Both have to do with the choice of terminating a soul and that is why I think that it should solely be the choice of not the individual but God to determine their faith.
