DIE WITH DIGNITY
Transcript of DIE WITH DIGNITY
Petition for legalization of euthanasia, asking the public to sign our forms- most of whom already agree: Not only do terminally ill patients and who are related to these cases agree with euthanasia being put into law, but the general public has also spoken on the topic. The National Opinion Poll of 2002 collected data stating that “81% of the public think that a person suffering unbearably from a terminal illness should be allowed by law to have medical help to die if that is what he or she wants” (“Friends at the End” 1). Millions of Americans and people around the world approve of euthanasia and agree that “It’s me. It’s my body. It’s my liberty. It’s my life. And it’s my death. Let me have control” (Humphry 2).
Our Plan Cont.
Strive to acquire a radio interview or create a commercial for radio stations to play, create signs to place at the corners of roads, post our obligation through tweets, on facebook, on istagram, ect.
Create a pamphlet with background and our main goal as a group, try to spread to word to the public by making the hook shocking, urging people to read further and the visual representation something to look at.
We can gather others that believe in our cause as well as the rest of the group and fight for these ill people to rightfully die the way they choose, peacefully and with dignity.
A political action plan (PAC) is also on the agenda: we plan to organize a run for euthanasia. We will raise the money for Senator Andy Biggs’ campaign for supporting our cause.

This logo represents the scale of justice, we believe that euthanasia is no ones choice but the patient's and the patients family. It is the patient's own life and should be able to die peacefully, without pain. The choice-maker should be blind, so the outcome is fair and is brought to justice
In the past, as many medical treatments have been introduced to the public, there stirs controversy whether or not to legalize this “good death”. Approximately 18,000,000 people globally pass on from a terminal disease yearly, most of whom who want to die because of the tolls the infection takes upon their life, suggesting that, “Euthanasia effects millions with illnesses obligated to take its victim’s lives” (“Facts About Euthanasia” 2).
Supporters of euthanasia argue terminally ill individuals should be given the solemn right to indefinitely end their suffering with a dignified, swift, and compassionate death. The right to die, as devotees believe, is under the same constitutional defenses as marriage and refusal of treatment. Opponents counter doctors have the obligation of keeping their patients alive and as well as possible, agreeing with the Hippocratic Oath. They fear that if doctors were to perform this treatment, it could very well lead to murder if not correctly justified.
DIE WITH DIGNITY
Euthanasia is derived from the Greek word for “good death” and defined as the intentional practice or act of ending a person’s life either by suspension of medical treatment or by legal injection. This act has been set into law as illegal in most places across the globe, therefore is not an option for any citizen who suffers regularly. Several people worldwide are suffering physically and financially, and our Interest Group push to have these people a chance to die with dignity- to be euthanized. Today, only a few areas in the world have legalized euthanasia: the Netherlands, Switzerland, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Belgium, and Luxembourg.
