Mercy Killing..... By: Daron Buie

Mercy Killing is where a person is suffering and is not going to make it, so another person would pull the plug and takes that persons life that the day they choose to die so they no longer would be suffering. Like a person had an accident and they would had a small chance to survive and they asked a person to end their life. Mercy Killing today is illegal and is the same as murder and the person who ends the persons suffering is charged with murder and serve the same charges as a normal criminal would face.
