Those who oppose euthanasia argue that legalizing it would result in abuse. One opponent claimed that physicians could use its legalization to "get rid" of an objectionable relative. As a result, the public would eventually question the trust of the medical profession. Opponents say it would also leave a patient pressured into requesting euthanasia to relieve family of their burden. They also argue that if euthanasia were legalized it would initially be for the terminally ill, then it would eventually be justified for the aged, incurable demented persons, and convicted murderers.
