Case Study Analysis of Active & Passive Euthanasia (Example)

Document Preview:

Student’s Name: Professor’s Name: Course: Date: Analyzing The Schiavos and Fetal Testing for Down Syndrome cases using Utilitarian Kantian and Natural Law principles. The Schiavos Euthanasia is a process of terminating life with a purpose of ending suffering and pain. However at times the way euthanasia is carried out can be painful. For Terri Schiavo case being in Persistent vegetative State for 13 years brought a dispute between her family and her husband in figuring out on the most ethical thing to do for being in this state she had only two paths to continue onto; surviving and living life through assistance of through feeding tube or death through euthanasia. After a prolonged fight the husband wins the case of removal of life support and the family loses the case. My perspective and stand on Terri Schiavo case is that she was killed in a thoughtless harmful be good even if the intentions are for the good purpose. Therefore the theory supports parents who chose not to carry out an abortion or go for the tests in order to protect the pregnancy. My conclusion in this case is that abortion should be carried out once a parent finds out that the fetus has the Down’s syndrome. Additionally parents who refuse to carry out the tests should be encouraged to do so because raising a kid with the Down’s syndrome is making the kid suffer for the rest of his or her life which is pointless.
