Abstract

The arrogance of mankind has dampened the hope that individuals can achieve a dignified death.

Margaret Alford: "My name is Maggie Alford and I am a junior at Millersville University. I spent my freshmen year of college at James Madison University and because of financial reasons, had to transfer. I am a history major and a business minor, and like most students, I have no idea what I want to do after I graduate. One of the many occupations that I have often thought of pursuing is a career in writing. I have major interests in history and romance, so my dream is to write a historical romance novel.

I am very flattered that my essay was chosen by the student staff of e-Vision. I never expected "Euthanasia: A Compassionate Crime," to be honored in this way. Having very strong feelings about the legalization of certain forms of euthanasia, I was actually excited to be able to write a paper on the subject. When my teacher, Mr. Sherman, told the class that he wanted us to explore different approaches to page layout, I was even more excited. Fortunately, I had the availability of a computer with amazing graphics. The pictures that I chose for my paper were extremely heart wrenching, but they added sentiment to the paper. The quotes that I found about euthanasia, from some of the most famous scholars, helped my arguments as well. I have to be honest and say that the paper was time-consuming, but it helps that the subject was something that I cared about. I hope that my paper will be a help to anyone that reads it!"
