Abstract

The issue of euthanasia is gaining greater momentum in Poland. It is a matter of fact that Poland is a country with an increasing aging population. As a result of this increased awareness, this topic is also becoming increasingly controversial. Does a doctor have the right to decide, on behalf of another person, if they should end their life? What limitations should doctors be bound by in terms of their legal and ethical obligations? The purpose of this study is to investigate the ethical and legal implications associated with euthanasia.
