By using euthanasia, miraculous recoveries have been prevented. People think that the easy way out of their problems is by conducting euthanasia. It is not a natural thing to commit suicide, and suffering is no excuse for death. Suffering is a part of nature, and we should not try to fix and polish it by means of death. By rea...
