The different opinions about Euthanasia necessarily depend on different opinions in the field of morals. The subjects about Euthanasia are the subjects about “value”. Some believe that the life is maximum goodness and other good nesses bring the meaning with the existence of life. There is no goodness and value without life (namely it can’t exist) and the life is necessary term to fulfill other values. The subject in connection with “Euthanasia” is mainly about what it is moral? There are several fundamental questions which have been discussed. For example, is there any right to commit suicide? Does it moral that someone helps another one to commit suicide? Is there any right to facilitate the death according to his request or his families’? Does it moral that we put an end to someone’s life that is not hope to be survived for another person’s rescuing? All subjects about “Euthanasia” are planning to reply such questions. “Euthanasia” is an important subject in medical ethics because it contains all social and cultural scopes.
