This paper examines the controversial topic of Euthanasia from a legal and moral perspective. It supplies examples in history when other forms of mercy killings were used, it brings down some court cases on the topic and discusses how various religions have reacted to this question.
From the paper:

“When we are young, most of us do not think about making a conscious decision to die. We look forward to years of long and healthy life, and if death ever seems appealing it is as an antidote to depression. But it does not often, if ever, occur to us that there will be a time when we look forward to the ?good death? promised by euthanasia. This paper examines the legal and moral aspects of euthanasia ? sometimes called ?mercy killing? ? a topic make even more timely by the decision last week of the Dutch courts to legalize physician-assisted suicide.”
