Abstract

Euthanasia violates the rights of health, because committing euthanasia is as same as giving someone the rights to not obtain an optimal degree of health. Health rights are rights directly related to health services and efforts to improve public health both physical and non physical. Euthanasia is the act of stopping someone's efforts to get health. Health efforts with maintenance approaches in the form of healing diseases (curative) and health recovery (rehabilitative) were stopped. Euthanasia is also an act of giving someone the rights to die. This paper is to discuss the legal consequences for patients and doctors of committing euthanasia in the perspective of health and criminal law in Indonesia as well as the construction of comprehensive legal policies that can provide legal certainty and legal protection for patients and doctors from euthanasia in the context of law reformation. Legal protection for patients is related to the guarantee of treatment, legal certainty in the event of euthanasia. In addition, legal protection for doctors is related to the provision of medical services, in the ability of competence to provide treatment and how doctors are responsible for euthanasia committed against patients, so it is expected that by constructing legal policies will provide recommendations for the reformation of laws and regulations in the health sector and provide legal assurance and legal protection for doctors and patients.
Keywords: Legal Protection, Legal Assurance, Euthanasia.
