Arizona State University Assisted Suicide Sociology Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

consider the various end-of-life issues that are raised–such as right-to-die, physician-assisted suicide, and prolonging life through artificial means. Also think of the hopeful side of aging.

In your small group, discuss the following questions and include how you faith informs your answers:

  1. Should Terry Schiavo have been sustained on a feeding tube indefinitely?
  2. Did Brittany Maynard do the right thing in choosing the time of her own death to avoid pain?
  3. What irony do you see in Peggy Battin’s advocacy for right-to-die and her personal experience with her severely disabled husband?
  4. Of the suggestions given to improve the aging process, which one might you adopt?
