Title : Dying people should be kept on life support. Do you agree?

   " I don't care, we should keep on continuing this life support for mom! ", " We have to let it go, honey. We should not let her suffer anymore ", "But what if she wake up again? Don't you want to see her beautiful smile again? Please my big brother, let give her chance to live just a little longer". Maybe these are some experience which happens to other people or you yourself to be in this situation. It is quite a great dilemma when we are in the middle of two lines. Life or death. As medical students, we might face this situation in the future. In our opinion, we strongly disagree with the action of the sister who wants to longer the life of her mother because of many factors.

   Dying people should not be kept on life support because it is like we suffered them. Just you imagine, if someone is dying, you wouldn't let them sit there and suffer, would you? We are like forcing unbreathable people to breathe. Just think if you hurt so bad where you couldn't get up and walk,and you are forced to get up and walk. Is it very difficult and suffered right?  So, we must let them go instead by keeping them on life support. Although there are some people said there is a small probability of dying people to getting health back, only small percent of people will get full and good recovery to live. They might be recover but not in a good healthy. For example, when someone  is dying and be keeping on life support, suddenly miracles happen and the dying person wake up, but the person is still in weak condition. He or she must undergo many treatment to get full recovery and it took a very long time. However, on getting the full recovery, there is also a chances to get the disease or attack back. So, there is no point to keep the dying people on life support.

   In addition, keeping the dying persons on life support can also cause them, super-majority of family and friends false hope. Just imagine, if you are at the dying person position and you were told you only have several months to live.What are your feelings at that moment? Off course, you feel depressed right? As the effect, you will have negative minded   and become bad, worse, and worst since you only think by keeping you on the life support you can live. You can’t think of any other solutions and you will lose hope. You are on the bed with everyone is sitting beside you with sad face. Is it what you want at the end of your life? No happiness, no enjoyment, and your life is full of darkness and sorrow. NO right? So, why don’t we let them to live in peace with positive minded that they will live happily ever after. They can fulfill their precious times with family, relatives, friends and the beloved ones.We should support these special persons and inspires them.By this way, they will have strength to face all the challenges and obstacles in their life although they know the death is coming.I strongly believe, by this way, the dying persons can heal more easily or at least if they die, they will not regret because they have made preparation for it. They will die in happiness and all sweet memories with beloved ones. In short, keeping the dying person on the life support is not always the best choice.

   Moreover, the reason why we do not agree on keeping dying people's life by life support machine because of high cost needed for the treatment during her or his dying.The cost involving her food,medicine and even petrol used for shuttling from home to hospital is counted.On top of that,family members or people who closely related with patient need to earn more money in order to pay hospital bill.Plus,nowadays most special treatment required much money.People who have more money could get first class ward whereas people with no money would get ward which is less comfortable.As a family member,of course we want the best for our family,right ?So,I would like you to decide which is truly the 'best' for the patients.It also will need much money if we kept the dying people longer.The longer we keep their life by life support machine,the higher the cost needed.In conclusion,we oppose dying people's life is support by life machine as it cost much money.

   As a conclusion we disagree that life support machine should be given to dying people.We thinks,it is best for them to die rather than suffering their disease such as cancer, brain tumor and HIV. We knew that maybe some of the reader would not agree with our statement,but let us think this quote together 'You only live once,but if you do it right,once is enough'
