"Assisted Suicide with the global conception of Human Rights"
The right to life is one of the main principles described in the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights; Along with it, articles such as the number 25, affirm
that everyone has the right to a high quality of live, which would allow them to
have various social, economic and medical standards as insurers of their well-
being. Over the past few years, the UN Human Rights Council has spoken out on
the issue of assisted suicide, mercy killing and euthanasia, answering to claims
from people who have felt violated because they have been denied the chance
die with dignity.
This last premise involves complex ethical postulates that cover both scientific
and social issues. Despite of the fact that few nations have approved assisted
suicide within their legal frameworks, there are many voices that have joined the
debate to determine how to give dignity to the death of a human being. Many
questions arise, regarding which are the drugs that lighten patients' ailments to
their death, euthanasia in its various classifications (positive, negative, direct,
indirect, voluntary or involuntary), the assessment of who deserves it and who
needs to be protected from it, and when can it become a crime against
humanity... According to art. 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, all
people are born equal in dignity and endowed with reason and conscience, so
this same conscience should assure them of their decision to die with dignity,
