# What is Euthanasia or “Easy Death”?
Is this death is too easy? The word “euthanasia” comes from the Greek — “EU” meaning “goodly or well” + “Thanatos” meaning “death” So, euthanasia literally means “good death.”
This good death refers to deliberately ending someone’s life, usually to relieve from unbearable suffering. Doctors sometimes have the legal authority to do euthanasia when it is requested by the patient or his or her’s family to make relief from severe suffering.
# Ethics around Euthanasia:
This Euthanasia is a very complicated debate, Basically, one group of people said that in life you or anyone is not supposed to choose your death. This is even compared to Suicide and Murder.
One group of people said that it is for goodness sake, a person who is in severe pain and no way to cure that person, at that time it is good to choose death instead of living.
# Types of Euthanasia:
There are several types of Euthanasia based on different situations. There is maybe the difference in the terms of Euthanasia, but the motive is the same, letting that person die.
This type of Euthanasia involves a legal amount of prescribed drug or lethal injection, which ends someone’s life.
A person knowingly taking some overdose of medication that lets them die and make free from the pain, and sufferings. There are situations when this is prescribed by that person oneself who wants to die.
In this type of euthanasia, the person is left with that situation without any medication, and let the person die ownself.
Sometimes there are situations when doctors used to switch off the ventilation, or the oxygen supply, or something that led to death. This is called Passive Euthanasia.

# MORAL OPINION:
In my opinion, this is not a good thing even the patient wants it also because there is a precious life inside that person. The patient or the person who if, aware of all these things and wants his or her family to take relief, he or she ownself wants Euthanasia, but I don’t think after Euthanasia we are able to see that person?
Feel that I have no words.
