English II CP
Of Mice and Men Euthanasia Synthesis Essay

As you should know by now, Of Mice and Men ends with George killing Lennie. One justification hinted at in the novel centers on mercy: George kills his friend in order to spare Lennie a more gruesome and painful death at the hands of Curley and the other ranchers.

In other words, Lennies death is a form of euthanasia, or mercy killing. But euthanasia, like abortion and global warming, is a controversial and contestable issue.

In order to do this, you will examine some of the arguments for and against euthanasia and construct an essay that uses those argumentsas well as textual evidence from Of Mice and Mento condemn or confirm Georges decision to kill Lennie.
