INTRODUCTION

The term euthanasia comes from the Greek words "eu"-meaning good and "thanatos"-meaning death, which combined means “well-death” or "dying well". Euthanasia has been a major controversial subject for many years. Many people have different opinions regarding this difficult topic. Some people feel that euthanasia should be given as an option for terminally ill patients. Others feel that euthanasia is unethical and should not be an option at all. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of euthanasia is the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy. Euthanasia is also called assisted suicide or sometimes referred to as a mercy killing. Some countries have already legalized euthanasia. The three states of Oregon, Washington, and Montana are the only states in the United States that have also legalized euthanasia. But here in the Philippines, euthanasia is not legal for the reason of predominance of the religious communities which hinders the ratification of the Euthanasia Bill. Some social, political and religious groups everywhere have heated debates about euthanasia regarding whether or not it is morally right or wrong.

Euthanasia may be classified according to whether a person gives informed consent into three types: voluntary, non-voluntary and involuntary. Euthanasia conducted with the consent of the patient is termed voluntary euthanasia while Non-voluntary euthanasia is conducted when the consent of the patient is unavailable and the classification of euthanasia where in it is conducted against the will of the patient is termed involuntary euthanasia. Voluntary, non-voluntary and involuntary euthanasia can all be further divided into passive or active variants. Passive euthanasia entails the withholding of common treatments necessary for the continuance of life and active euthanasia entails the use of lethal substances or forces to kill and is the most controversial means.

Statement of the Problem

This study aims to answer the following questions:

  1. What are the impacts of euthanasia in our society?
  2. What are the differences between voluntary, involuntary and non-voluntary euthanasia?
  3. What are the effects of euthanasia in the patient, patient’s family and in the medical community?
  4. What is the difference between active and passive euthanasia?
  5. What are some of the reasons why some people agree with euthanasia?

Importance of the Study

        This study will help other people to be more aware of what euthanasia is and with this study, it will be a lot more easier to understand if it is good for a person or an animal suffering from an incurable disease or condition to undergo euthanasia. This study will widen the knowledge of each one of us-this will probably help us understand both the positive and negative effects of euthanasia. The future researchers will also be able to use this study as a reference for their own study related to this one.

Objectives of the Study

        Generally, this study aims to investigate the personal opinions of the students of SAS-SHS regarding euthanasia.

Specifically, this study aims to:

  1. determine the difference between the different types of euthanasia
  2. know what are the impacts of euthanasia in our society
  3. know the effects of euthanasia in:
  1. Patient
  2. Family
  3. Medical community

Time and Place of the Study

The researchers will conduct this study inside the school campus of Saint Augustine School-Senior High School. And this research study will be conducted from the month of July-October 2017.

Scope and Limitations

         This study entitled “The perception of SAS SHS students in the impact of euthanasia in the residents of Tanza, Cavite” aims to get the total of 100 respondents from Saint Augustine School-Senior High School students so that the data that the researchers will be able to collect will be more accurate on what the expected answers are. The main goal of this research study is to know the impact of this kind of activity to our society.

Definition of Terms

Euthanasia means to take a deliberate action with the express intention of ending a life to relieve intractable (persistent, unstoppable) suffering.

Voluntary Euthanasia refers to the act of killing someone painlessly, especially to relieve suffering from an incurable illness, with the consent of the patient.

Non-voluntary euthanasia is euthanasia conducted when the explicit consent of the individual concerned is unavailable, such as when the person is in a persistent vegetative state, or in the case of young children.

Involuntary euthanasia occurs when euthanasia is performed on a person who would be able to provide informed consent, but does not, either because they do not want to die, or because they were not asked.

Active euthanasia refers to when a person directly and deliberately caused the patient's death; happens when lethal substances or forces are used to end the patient’s life.

Passive euthanasia happens when they don't directly take the patient's life, they just allow the patients to die.
