Euthanasia Euthanasia is a practice done by a health professional that is considered assisted suicide where the health professionals actively or passively assist the patient to die. The passive euthanasia involves the removal or disconnection of patients from life support. The action of detachment does not help the patients recover or improve their health which implies that they would die a natural death. Active euthanasia involves the injection of lethal doses of drugs that would cause death to the patient (Gamliel, 2012). The patient can decide to perform the cation by themselves, or it can be done with the assistance of a health professional (Healey, 2013).
