A French woman badly disfigured by facial tumors caused by a rare and incurable disease has appealed to President Nicolas Sarkozy to allow her to die by euthanasia.
# Euthanasia is different from suicide as it is only allowed in the cases where death is impending and one can not do anything except wait for his end, and suffer in between.
# Limited hospital beds could be used for people whose lives could be saved instead of continuing the life of those who want to die which increases the general quality of care and shortens hospital waiting lists. It is a burden to keep people alive past the point they can contribute to society.
# The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government.
# Euthanasia is a violation of the sanctity of human life that unduly compromises the professional roles of health care employees, especially doctors.
