What kinds of social issues are there right now?

Two doctors assisted a woman who had ALS to commit suicide and it's big news. Right to die is always a controversial, and there are various thoughts depends on own belief. In some countries allow to choose a dignified death after in-depth counseling, however, it's usually illegal, and so is Japan. l feel a little contradictory that killing people by war is legalized, but choosing death by oneself is illegal. Anyway, I had a friend who got ALS, and she passed away four years ago. This news recalled me her situation of fighting against ALS.

Two doctors assisted a woman who had ALS to commit suicide and it's big news. The right to die is always     controversial, and there are various thoughts depending on people's beliefs. Some countries allow people who choose this way of dying to have a dignified death after in-depth counselling, however, it's usually illegal in other countries including Japan. l feel a little contradictory that killing people by war is legalized, but choosing death by oneself is illegal. Anyway, I had a friend who got ALS, and she passed away four years ago. This news made me remember her situation of fighting against ALS.

1. "the" is a definite article that is used when you are referring to something specific.
2. "a" is redundant and can be removed without changing the meaning of the sentence.
3. This word is precise in your sentence.
4. Use "people's" to mention what you are referring to.
5. Use plurals when talking about things in general.
6. 7. & 8. These phrases are precise and clearer.
This is really a controversial one. If people are given the right to live, do you think we also have the right to take our own life?

This is a very difficult question that I don't have a clear answer. We don't have a law to punish the person who committed suicide, but if it became legalized, there would be more people who chose death without thinking deeply. However, if I got an intractable disease, and I couldn't move my body by myself with being conscious, I would become hopeless. I might think that I have the right to die. I'm like going around in circles.

1. Use the preposition "to" to indicate the relationship between things.
2. 3. 4. 5. & 6. Use present tenses when you are expressing an action that is currently going on or habitually performed, or a state that currently or generally exists.
7. This is a precise way of expressing what you were trying to say.
8. This phrase is clearer and makes your sentence precise.
That is legal in some countries. It is called euthanasia. I agree that it is something that we should ponder profoundly on. Do you think your country would soon legalize it?

I know that some people, who have money and can communicate with a local doctor, go abroad for euthanasia from Japan. We have been discussing the right to die, but there is no progress. This incident may trigger to accelerate the discussion, however legislation is one of the tough challenges implementing euthanasia.

1. This is the correct word order.
2. Use the preposition "of" to indicate references.
Oh, I see, in my country, I don't think euthanasia is legal but people reach an agreement with the doctors. Your government has to consider that it's expensive to keep someone in a hospital who has no hope of waking up.

In that case, it is the same here. If someone in coma and can't make any decision by themselves, their family decide either keep using a ventilator or remove it.

3. Use this phrase when expressing a doubt or choice between alternatives.
Yes, that is true. It is a very difficult decision to make as well. What other social issues do you want to talk about?
