Understanding about rights associated with Life goes back a long way. The issue of the Right to Life and Euthanasia is much of the time brought up in the present society, which is a topic of discussion in fields like medication, science, law, sociology and many more branches of human Life. The word Euthanasia applies to a variety of issues surrounding the determination of whether or not a person who may survive with the assistance of life support or in a reduced or weakened capacity should be allowed to die. In certain situations, it also refers to the notion that a person with a terminal disease who is in a critical condition must be terminated, allowed to end treatment, or aided by a medical professional in dying before death may otherwise occur, i.e. assisted dying where people have option and power at the end of life to let go of their suffering. However, there are an exodus amount of legal, medical and social issues associated with Euthanasia. Despite the fact that at present, only partial Euthanasia is allowed in India, that too in rare of rare cases, the word itself is still a conflicting concept before the courts, often in conjunction with the terms death with dignity or violation of Right to Life. Within the scope of this research article that deals with Euthanasia and constitutional validity: a comparative study between India and Canada, the paper aims to further the discussion and concludes with its reliable solution to mitigate procedural and even substantial loopholes in the context of India and, highlights the possible solution.
