Informations and abstract
Keywords: Euthanasia - slippery slope - moral perfectionism - individual autonomy.
In this article, I will offer a definition of active euthanasia, of passive euthanasia and of physician-assisted suicide. Secondly, because I believe in the value of individual autonomy, I will confutate some arguments adduced against the legalization of voluntary euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. In particular, five arguments. The slippery slope argument, the perfectionist moral argument, the theological argument, the patients' vulnerability argument, the life's sacred value argument.
