Thus, the article is vital in looking into the ethical considerations of euthanasia and factors that contribute to euthanasia decision.

The article by Dinchi (2010) is about a Baltimore physician’s conviction that faced the accusation of assisted suicide. Dr. Egbert Larry had the belief that his patients should not go through pain, and this is the reason for him performing euthanasia. The Final Exit Network accused the doctor of his wrong act of ending people’s lives. The network instead wanted doctors to ensure that Patients are not going through a painful process of death and not to take their lives away. This article is vital in helping readers to know other methods of assisting the dying patients and not just on mercy killing.
