This essay task was prepared in its entirety by Kaan Doğan to whom we owe thanks
In the current times, attitudes to euthanasia are changing with various European countries – Belgium, The Netherlands and Switzerland – now allowing it and institutions such as Gravitas helping to apply it. Should euthanasia be allowed or is it unethical and open to abuse? Should euthanesia be considered a matter of individual freedom or not? Do your research and write an argumentative essay.
Refer to my second blog, The Essay Archive, for sample essays: https://theessayarchive.blogspot.com.tr/  

During your research, you will discover that there are three kinds of euthanasia so in your introduction it is suggested that:
·         You define euthanasia and classify it
·         Then move on to your thesis where you clearly state which one or ones you support and which one or ones you don’t.
·         Alternatively, just focus on one kind of euthanasia
In order to do this, access the following slide-share sites:
·         “Euthanasia” http://www.slideshare.net/MarcosGC/euthanasia-powerpoint
·         “Should euthanasia be legal?” http://www.slideshare.net/mapsofworld/should-euthanasia-be-legal
Now watch the following power point presentation:
·         “Euthanasia should be legalized in every state” http://prezi.com/xtb1q-4xeqdz/euthanasia-should-be-legalized-in-every-state/
