In this article the author discusses 2 types of euthanasia, which are distinguished by the action taken, by the caregiver, and by the extent of the patients consent. In each situation where euthanasia is an option different ethical principles are locked in struggle. The author concludes by claiming that a decrease in patient demand for euthanasea will occur as physicians grow capable in controlling pain.
