We Filipinos

We Filipinos, are always giving a great value in one’s life. According to Bible, life is a sacred gift from God (Genesis 2:7) and when given the choice between life and death, God told Israel to “choose life” (Deuteronomy 30:19). We always doing our best to live our lives to the fullest because we all believe that we only live once. But what if you are terminally ill or has an incurable disease and the life that you cherish the most is taken to you by your relatives or such a medical professionals? How does it feel? Euthanasia or mercy killing is known for this issue. It is intentionally killing of a patient to relieve his/her pain and sufferings with the decision of his/her relatives. It is strictly prohibited in the Philippines.
