The Constitution of India provides many fundamental rights under Part III. According to the Article 21 of the Constitution, “No person shall be deprived of his life and personal liberty except according to the procedure established by law”. Here the question arises that whether Right to Life includes Right to die? If the answer is Yes, then why patients suffering from diseases like cancer suffer lots till their death. A patient who is already living with the support of ventilator and is depended on others for everything, then how can we say that such person is living with his dignity? It might be exaggerating to say that the issue of authorizing right to die is done and there is any assumption for putting it into an establishment in the near future. Making a law isn't an answer on each troublesome we face in regular daily existence. Mercy killing is authentically not a run of the mill situation anyway a critical phenomenal condition. One out of thousands situation clinical specialists go over occurrences of patients with determined conditions, where adamant eradication is considered. It's definitely not an average case It is more astute to left the issue with the judiciary, until we set ourselves up genuinely and essentially to recognize it, as an element of our life.
