Hi, please write an essay about 200 words on this topic. Thanks
In his paper “Active and Passive Euthanasia”, James Rachels provides four arguments for why there should be no distinction between active euthanasia and passive euthanasia. First, define both types of euthanasia. Next, summarize each of the four arguments. Lastly, explain why the third argument with the example using Smith and Jones is of particular interest to ethical philosophers and whether or not you agree with his assessment. Explain, in your own words, the example. Then, discuss the significance of this example – i.e. what Rachels is trying to highlight with its use.
