EUTHANASIA To Help or Hinder

Personally, I disagree with euthanasia. I don’t think God
intended for man to decide when, where, and how to take
Sometimes we as humans feel we are helping others and
in actuality end up hurting more than anything. A prime
example is Dr. Kevorkian. Kevorkian assisted approximatley
thirty people with euthanasia. He and his patients thought
they were helping to end a life of pain and misery. In reality,

else. Because of this god-like pratice, we need laws passed
against euthanasia before it is uncontrolla…
