Tutor description

One of the tricky questions has been to determine when the right to life begins. Some argue that it should be at birth or conception. Many existing laws do not define precisely if the foetus is included in the right to life even though almost all existing laws provide for the right to life . Just like the question on the beginning of the right to life, the question about the right to die a dignified death is unclear one too, and many laws are not clear on it including the European Union Laws. Euthanasia is a term that is synonymous with the right to die commonly referred to as mercy killing . The issue is approached differently by laws in Europe. Although, the right to life is considered important by European Union laws, European Convention on Human Rights permits deaths from acts of war that are lawful . A state can also terminate life under its set laws. However, the question of right to die has remained unanswered.

A state can also terminate life under its set laws. However, the question of right to die has remained unanswered.There are proponents and opponents of the individual's right to die. Both groups provide powerful ideological and philosophical arguments as to why they are right. Those who oppose, claim that the right to life is an absolute right, inherent to someone and no reason whatsoever should take it away from them. The group that supports the idea argue that one is entitled to have a dignified death when the chances of survival are clearly not
