In no other form of life, but human life, time plays major role. Human life is not just present time, it is the “touching point” between the past and the future, the epicenter of the unbearable contradiction between life and death. For all of us time is primary factor since future offers the possibilities of living a quali-ty life, opens new horizons for the realization of our motivations, expectations and achieving of human freedom. Discussions on this topic are older than life itself, which is a passing phenomenon, while the deliberation on euthanasia is a constant. Therefore, the opinions on this issue can be temporary and inade-quate, satisfactory and definite –constantly being upgraded withnew stands and changes and critics of the old ones. The history of this issue is full of specula-tions, scrutiny, unproven and disputable statements.This is so much true about euthanasia since this phenomenon is complex, extremely plural in its form, with“many faces” of merciful ending of life of a dying patient and with many possibili-ties for the abuse. In this paper the author under lines that to attempt to explain this phenomenon actually means to shed light on both moments, that is its both sides and make conclusions on the basis of these findings. This is even more important in this moment of the civilization’s growth glorifying individual free-doms, but at the same time facing moral alienation as its recognizable trait. Thus, unveiling all the aspectsof this human drama becomes a prerequisite by itself.
