Abstract

Euthanasia is bioethical dilemma. Different countries are struggling for its legalization. The Proponents consider that Euthanasia is against the dignity of human being and everyone has right to relief his pain. They think that human beings have to live a life which is according to the standard of humanity but when a person suffers from a disease which is incurable, his standard of life goes down to a level which is not suitable for a human being. So in such condition they should have the right to end their lives with dignity. This paper basically deals with what is the concept of euthanasia? What is its history and what rationale does its proponents and opponents presents? This research is historical, analytical and descriptive. The views of both parties have been analyzed. The research shows that it is not a new phenomenon. Its roots are found in Greek period. Its proponents take it as a savior of human dignity and freedom.
