Readings for “Euthanasia”: David Klein
Is This Euthanasia?
Setting aside any legal prohibitions that might exist where you live, consider the following:
A 70-year-old man has cancer, is bed-ridden, and is in severe pain every day. Nothing further can be done to treat his cancer, and he desperately wants to die. He is admitted to the hospital with pneumonia, which could end his life, but which could be cured by antibiotics. As his physician, are you willing to withhold antibiotics and let him die? If he survives the pneumonia, would you be willing to provide him with pills that he could take to end his own life? If he is too weak to take the pills himself, would you be willing to help him do it?
Terry Schiavo – 2005
In 1990 at age 27, she suffered a cardiac arrest and was left in a persistent vegetative state. As a consequence, with no improvement after 15 years and multiple trials of non-conventional as well as conventional treatment, her husband, who was legal guardian under Florida law, sought to remove her feeding tube and allow her to die, as an end he felt she would have wanted, according to her prior statements. Her parents and sibs opposed this, and the ensuing series of legal maneuvers came to national attention. The cause was picked up by “right to life” advocates, and it became a national political and religious issue. What do you think the courts should decide in this case? Why?
