PRAKTIK EUTANASIA DALAM PERSPEKTIF MEDIS DAN HUKUM PIDANA INDONESIA
Keywords:Euthanasia,, Death according to Medical,, Euthanasia Regulation in Indonesia.
Some think that euthanasia is an act of suicide or intentionally taking someone's life which is prohibited by any religion and unlawful. The Indonesian Doctors Association (IKI) also opposes euthanasia measures for patients for any reason. Broadly speaking from the way it is done, euthanasia is divided into two groups, namely active euthanasia and passive euthanasia. According to Kartono Muhammad, active euthanasia occurs if there are still signs of life in patients when euthanasia measures are performed. The action referred to in this case is to accelerate the death of a person by giving injections or removing the aids used by the patient. Meanwhile, passive euthanasia is an action that is carried out both at the request of the patient himself and the patient's family to deliberately no longer assist with tools that can prolong the patient's life.
