Each of these articles examine parts of the issue, the two articles aren’t related however they each compliment the review, each of them looks at factors involved in the issue of euthanasia. Lewis Cohen looks at the negative viewpoints and how physicians risk their careers as well as potential criminal charges for those that participate in assisted suicide. Shaping the views of my review to make it unbiased is essential making the choice of a fairly negative article on the subject essential.
