Since when does people kill their selves to cure diseases? Euthanasia most commonly known as medically assisted suicide to end one’s life. Most people want to have a right to die because they may be terminally ill and be in excruciating pain that may feel like torment (BBC). Euthanasia is illegal in most of the United States, but there are states that have legalized this. Even though many people think one should have the right to die there are many organizations that are against the idea of euthanasia. One of the organizations is Hope and their mission is to create networks to put up a barrier to euthanasia (Hope).
Hope is a coalition single group that wants to create a positive but effective message to the public. Another organization is Voice for life and their concern is to speak up for life regardless of any circumstances (Voice for life). Voice for life was founded in 1970 by a professor named Sir William Liley in New Zealand (History). Both organizations have similar views on euthanasia and have the knowledge that life is important regardless of any situation. Even though the organizations may differ, they have the same views on the issue and the purpose of this essay is to implement a partnership.
Hope is a single coalition group who oppose euthanasia and is located in Australia. Hope is an organization that firmly believes that euthanasia or medically assisted suicide poses a risk for the vulnerable. Many elderly people who are the vulnerable feel pressured into making the decision to end their life because of being a burden to their families and the state (The telegraph). Most families are the ones that put the ideas in the elder’s head that the family would be better off without them. Euthanasia opens a pathway for the terminally ill, disabled, and the elderly people to see themselves to be an extreme emotional and financial burden to others (the national centre). In the states that allow euthanasia the children have to pick where one will have a medically assisted suicide. Some say that children shouldn’t have the right to choose euthanasia because children don’t have the knowledge or grasp on what life and death is (Debate).
Hope’s organization creates networks of people who want to educate people of all ages on the issue of euthanasia. The organization goes around the world to organize events and have quality speakers to speak to people of all ages. These events give people the hope that one needs to advocate the issue and learn the measures of euthanasia that makes it almost unthinkable. During these events it is discussed how a medically assisted suicide would originally be performed and the effects of the suicide. During a euthanasia patient is injected with a local anesthetic that makes one fall into a coma, and the person will slowly stop breathing (Quora). The organization researches how an euthanasia is performed and shares it with their audience. While doing the research information is exchange between many people to get different ideas.
Similarly, Voice for life advocates against euthanasia but in a different way. Voice for life believes one shouldn’t be allowing to kill themselves over diseases because that is not a cure. Voice for life values human life as some as conception to a natural death (Voice for life). Voice for life was founded in March 1970 in New Zealand. This organization was founded when two gynecologist specialists became aware of the abortion rates. In 2005 Voice for life expanded to all of women health and euthanasia as a topic of debate. Voice for life has over 30 branches that is educating and informing the public on the values of a human life. The organization challenges the communities outlook on euthanasia and to seek protection by law of the human law. Oregon, Vermont, and Washington have legalized assisted suicide (Sharecare). Montana can perform assisted suicide only after a court ruling (Sharecare). Most of the United States have not legalized euthanasia due to many rejected throughout some states. Voice for life wants to keep most of the United States to be against euthanasia and realize what the value of life is.
Hope and Voice for life have similar views on euthanasia but have different ways on advocating the issue. Hope and Voice for life know the importance of life itself and want to educate the public about life. If Hope and Voice for life came together into a partnership, it would really benefit both organizations significantly. Coming into one would make them more significant because one lacks what the other has. Hope has a broadly well-known network base, but Voice for life is more of street post and local newspapers. If the two organization came as one, they would reach a larger base of audience.
If Hope and Voice for life came into a partnership, there would be room to grow for both organizations as a whole. Hope organization offers events to educate the public while Voice for life will hand out packets with more information. After the events there will be people outside handing out packets and free to answer any questions one might have. These organizations would get the money for all events through funding. Hope and Voice for life will set up fundraisers to ensure a steady income to help with their partnership.
Hope has testimonials from people who have cancer and terminal illnesses, Voice for life can broadcast these testimonials through media with the permission of the people. The testimonials being broadcast will get more people to know what’s it like to be sick but not to think about euthanasia. Voice for life seeks protection through legal action to enforce that euthanasia does not spread and Hope can get people lawyers involved through their large network base. Hope can find lawyers and policemen to help find legal action while Voice for life is knowledgeable about any legal action they can find. Hope organization has a team that researches euthanasia and builds on it, Voice for life can present the researched material to the media as a pro-life message.
These organization are significant in gathering up people to fight their cause. The organizations want to educate and inform their audience about euthanasia. Hope organization is a single group of people who firmly believe that euthanasia poses risks to the vulnerable. Hope wants to create a message to all ages of people that euthanasia is not okay and should not be legalized. Voice for life believes that euthanasia will not cure anything. The organization wants people to understand and educate themselves about euthanasia. The organizations have a different way to advocate the issue but come together as a whole when it comes to with or against. These two organizations would benefit from coming together as partners and educating a larger audience. Hope and Voice for life are better together than apart because they make a stronger team and task force. These organizations would reach a larger audience, have support through legal actions, and have many ways to present information.
