Euthanasia has a very old history and this theme has been both opposed and defended since ancient ages. But humans have both some values with regard to our creation and some characteristics due to each person's position in society. The legal rules defend all these values. The characteristics with respect to human health are very important. Thus, Penal Codes and Civil Laws of various countries criticize euthanasia. But medicine has continuously developed and for this reason, persons who have defended this subject, have been criticized. Moreover, our traditions have criticized this condition.
