In today’s society, if you ask five people who Jack Kevorkian is then three or more would know who he is. The issue of euthanasia has been on the medias forefront for several years. There are several pros and cons to this issue. Some of these pros are as follows: it would help to end pain and suffering, it allows a person to die with dignity, and it also helps the grieving process because the person knows when they are gonna die. Some of the cons for this issue would be as follows: the denial of any chance of survival, Gods right to take a life would also be denied.
In my opinion, Aristotle would have been against euthanasia because of his theory of virtue ethics. God says “Thou shalt not kill” and God is the supreme authority, therefore, taking your own life would be a sin. There are no exceptions to this commandment.
