Finding the Meaning of Euthanasia and Its Safeguards

  • Alfons Zakaria Universitas Brawijaya

Abstract

Some people around the globe may be still debating whether euthanasia should be regulated or forbidden. Some countries, in the other hand, have legislated euthanasia a few years ago. Arguments from allies and opponent have been analysed before the legislators, but the euthanasia legislations differ in several provisions. These differences may generate potential abuses. Thus, a clear definition of euthanasia and proper safeguards for it are hoped eliminating the abuse. The objective of this paper is to obtain the clear meaning of various euthanasia terms and to present the notions of safeguarding for euthanasia legislation related to a vulnerable patient and any medical practitioner who is involved in administering euthanasia.
