In other words follow consequentialist theory by looking at the end and not the means by which it is reached.
But in narrow terms or broader terms its one and the same thing.
Active form : refers to acts of painlessly putting to death persons suffering from incurable conditions or diseases.
For example giving a lethal dose of medicine to kill a terminally ill patient.
Those who take euthanasia in narrow terms there are 4 possible kinds of death decisions Voluntary euthanasia Non voluntary euthanasia Voluntary allowing to die Non voluntary allowing to die First two are taken as immoral last two can be taken as justified.
For people who take euthanasia in abroad term there are again 4 forms Voluntary active euthanasia Non voluntary active euthanasia Voluntary passive euthanasia Non voluntary passive euthanasia 1-One should not interfere in the doings of God: As God has a purpose to everything.Euthanasia or mercy killing is a moral act done out of duty to those in suffering or an act for self-benefit under cover of morality or is it opening door to many illegal issues in the society. Narrowly speaking it is equivalent to killing so in these terms if allowing a person to die is not killing than its not euthanasia.Euthanasia should never be legalized in any of its forms else it will be practiced in all cases even where consent of a patient is not taken into account, for personal benefits by relatives, health insurance companies or the state. By considering this we can conclude that allowing someone to die can be moral but killing someone which comes under euthanasia is wrong.5-Improvement of Palliative care: When people will not be allowed to do euthanasia naturally many pharmaceuticals will try to invent new drugs to find out cure of a certain illness which will bring improvement in health care and will open up new possibilities for the treatment of incurable diseases.Counter point: For old and invalid individuals nothing can bring a change accept that they are blessed with a new life which is not humanly possible in any way so voluntary euthanasia should be allowed to those old and ill who have no hope for any technology or medicine to cure them.People who are very old and it’s difficult to look after them, invalid, disable children all will be given up for euthanasia which will cause moral injustice in the society at large.Counterpoint: Voluntary death decisions could only be allowed and make strict rules to practice it so that involuntary death decisions are restricted.People are not allowed to take their own lives in their hands.Life is bestowed upon us by God almighty and however painful it is we all have to live through it that’s part of bargain where there are good times there are bad times as well.In broader terms there are philosophers who say that not only acts of killing but also to allow someone to die comes under euthanasia .Therefore if allowing someone to die is not immoral than euthanasia should not be taken as wrong always it depends on the condition under which death is caused.
