Healthcare professionals may decide to withdraw life-supporting treatment from a patient whose quality of life is considered extremely poor.

There is a difference between positive and negative rights. A negative right implies a right to non-interference, for example a right not to be killed. In contrast, positive rights impose positive duties of support or assistance on others. A positive right to life imposes the duty to provide proper healthcare and ensure that life is saved.
