Arthur Miller A View from a Bridge What is the central theme of the play? Eddie’s obsessive love to his niece Catherine is the central theme in Arthur Miller’s play “ A View from the Bridge”. If you believe in the law of cause and effect you will agree with my hypothesis after reading the outline of the scenes.

View on Euthanasia bill. Reasons for view.
Euthanasia is the act of assisting the patients to relieve their pains by ending their lives. The purpose of Euthanasia bill is "people with a terminal illness or a grievous and irremediable medical condition the option of requesting assisted dying."
This is to relieve the family of the patient from having to watch their loved one from suffering. When someone is in pain or agony from the suffering of their disease, some people think that they cannot do anything to lessen the patient's pain. Through Euthanasia, some families believe that they have a chance to take away some of the patient's pain.
Some patients wish for their sooner deaths not only because they are suffering but also because of the emotional distress and financial state of their family. Life support machines costs a lot of money, some people believe that it is impractical and there is no reason to watch and wait for the patient to die while their money are being used up for hospital bills.

Those patients who are terminally ill are in constant pain and agony and it is their choice whether or not they would want to die slowly and have painful death. Those who support euthanasia believe it is only humanitarian and democratic if we allow those patients to have a quick, easy and painless death.

Patients will have to put under pressure knowing that there is a choice to end their life so that they will not be a burden to their family anymore. This makes them feel that they are causing unbearable misery to their family.
Euthanasia is against the will and word of God.
We should not end our lives just because it seems like it is the most reasonable way of putting an end to our pain. By doing that, we are not respecting ourselves and it also damages our self-worth.
Legalizing Euthanasia makes it easier to commit murder.
Requesting euthanasia is an irreversible decision, the patient might regret requesting it in the last minute but had no choice because they are already dead. Furthermore, those patients may have guilt for leaving their family and friends behind.
One of the top reasons for requesting euthanasia is depression and sadness, not pain. For such patients, counselling should be offered instead of ending .....
