Euthanasia and its legality have been a topic of controversy for a long time , since it includes the deliberate termination of an individual’s life. One of the basic fundamental rights given to us under the constitution is the Right to Life. But if a person id given the Right to Life then what about right to not live. ‘Right to Life’ includes right to live with dignity therefore it should also include the right to die with dignity. The verdict given for Common Cause v. Union Of India paved the way for passive euthanasia. The issue surrounding euthanasia is anything but simple. It involves moral, economic, ethical and societal aspects.
