As indicated before, death is not something that only affects the victim, but also other members. It affects the whole society, especially when it occurs in unconventional means, such as euthanasia (Goodman, 2006). It affects the psychological and emotional status of the individuals with whom the victim had relations. For this reason, the deontologist argues that the society has the right to be involved in such issues (Kamm, 2004). In his contribution, Emanuel Kant, indicated that what one does must be done within the confines of the law (Goodman, 2006). In fact, he indicated that if the acts are considered good, then they should be regulated by the international laws. This means that the acts must be generally acceptable across the globe. However, the fact that euthanasia attracts a lot of opposition from a majority of the society members globally means that it is not a ‘good’ thing. It is imposed, and denies the society members their rights to make their contributions regarding the death of individuals (Kamm, 2004). On the contrary, the consequentialists do not believe the society has a right to decide the right to live of a terminally ill person. As said before, their main belief is that life is a personal and private affair, meaning that it can only be controlled by an individual. This is a liberal point of view, which states that a person has the right to live and also to die. The society has no right to interfere with the decisions that have been made by an individual concerning their wish to terminate their lives.
