Every society has traits and customs that make it unique. These societies follow different moral codes.

Euthanasia [email protected] In recent years, Euthanasia has become a very heated debate. It is a Greek word that means easy death but the controversy surrounding it is just the opposite. Whether the issue is refusing prolonged life mechanically, assisting suicide, or active euthanasia, we eventually confront our socity's fears toward death itself. Above others, our culture breeds fear and dread of aging and dying. It is not easy for most of the western world to see death as an inevitable par

The Aborted Contract
The Aborted Contract
The Aborted Contract The issue of abortion is emotionally loaded and this often makes for poor, not thoroughly thought out arguments. The questions: Is abortion immoral and Is abortion a murder are often confused. The pregnancy (and the resulting foetus) are discussed in terms normally reserved to natural catastrophes (force majeure, in legal lingo). At times, the embryo is compared to cancer: after all, they are both growths, clusters of cells. The difference, of course, is that no one cont

The Murder Of Oneself
The Murder of Oneself Those who believe in the finality of death (i.e., that there is no after-life) ? they are the ones who advocate suicide and regard it as a matter of personal choice. On the other hand, those who firmly believe in some form of existence after corporeal death ? they condemn suicide and judge it to be a major sin. Yet, rationally, the situation should have been reversed : it should have been easier for someone who believed in continuity after death to terminate this phase of e

Suicide: My Thoughts
Suicide: My Thoughts j_hegarty I have known many adolescents who have thought about suicide. People?s reasons for suicide just cannot be legit in most cases. Some reasons are: ?my girlfriend broke up with me? or ?people make fun of me? or how about ?I don?t have any friends?? Whatever the reason for the thought of suicide, there isn?t a valid one, unless we are dealing in euthanasia. People usually think suicide is the best and only solution to an insignificant problem.

Execution of criminals and political opponents has been used by nearly all societies?both to punish crime and to suppress political dissent.

In many countries that

Many people may think that assisted suicide is a right they should have control of, however with a right like tha
