Physician Assisted Suicide Response

Review your classmates’ responses to Discussion Question 2.

 

State your opinion on physician assisted suicide, and defend your stance with at least three reasons. Did your discussion with your classmates change your view on physician assisted suicide? If so, how? If not, why not?

 

Address whether you feel quality of life or sanctity of life is more important in making this decision.

 

Consider that those with an interest in physician assisted suicide include the patient and his or her family, the physician and health care providers, and the government and legal regulators.

 

Argue your view on physician assisted suicide within your group. While making your argument, address the conflict of autonomy and paternalism.

 

Post your response to the following:

 

·         Are individuals given complete control over their care decision or does the doctor, as a professional, assume this responsibility?

 

·         Argue your view on physician assisted suicide from the perspective of each of the three interested parties. Use information from outside sources along with your own opinion in your argument.
