Directions (Q. 11-20): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

Mercy killing is the act of killing someone painlessly especially to relieve someone suffering from an incurable illness. It is also known as Euthanasia . It came from the Greek words, Eu (good) and Thanatopsis (death), but it relates to most painful and enigmatic question for the terminally ill patients, be it Cancer, AIDS, accidental or traumatic coma, and innumerable incurable diseases, waiting for the end to come but the end is not so easy its quite painful. The quality of life, in such a serious critical conditions is bleak, caregivers stress is also insurmountable, and the only prayer is that “DEATH” should embrace the patient in good grace for an eternal peaceful abode. In such a situation, if the death is not imminent but sure, the question arises why not the patient is artificially induced for a death, of course medically. But currently there are cases of misuse of euthanasia, for example in cases where the patient is pressured by family members to give consent to the ending of their lives. The legalization of voluntary euthanasia provides an opportunity for safeguards against just such a situation, and other instances of coercion and fraud. Mercy Killing is legally punishable and religiously a sin however worst may be the condition of the patient. In addition, doctors are afraid to openly discuss end-of-life decisions with patients due to illegalities. This prevents an open and honest relationship between doctor and patient in which the doctor can discover the patient’s wishes regarding his/ her own life and death. That’s why in every medical centre, there is statuary warning that the physicians concerned will not reveal the gender to the patient. Because most of the Indian families said to have a disliking for female child. A simple scan if reveals a viable female fetus and they presumably run for abortion, with the medical aid or illegally with the help of quacks to imperil the both the lives.

The most important question is here whether the too terminally ill, with the pain which cannot be described by words, should they live waiting for the death to grace or can euthanasia be legally permitted for the embrace death with dignity.

The government of India is against bringing any laws on mercy killings. The Supreme Court bench however had stated while writing the judgement -‘If we leave it solely to the patient’s relatives or to the doctors or the next friend to decide whether to withdraw life support to an incompetent person, there is always a risk in our country that this may be misused by some unscrupulous persons who wish to inherit or otherwise grab the property of the patient. Considering the low ethical levels prevailing in our society today and the rampant commercialization and corruption, we cannot rule out the possibility that unscrupulous persons with the help of some unscrupulous doctors may fabricate material to show that it is a terminal case with no chance of recovery.’
