Author(s): Yohanes Firmansyah, Hanna Wijaya, Wicipto Setiadi
Abstract: Euthanasia is one of the most widely discussed concrete issues because it often clashes with the principles of Religion, ethics, human rights and law. On the one hand, Euthanasia is an act of compassion to free a person from prolonged suffering. Still, on the other hand, Euthanasia is also a crime against religious, ethical and legal principles. This paper describes in detail the two sides of the coin of Euthanasia with a review from human rights, Religion, biomedical ethics, law, and all the implementation of Euthanasia in various countries as a form of comparison, especially Indonesia.
