Question of the Week #45

Someone very close to you is in pain, paralyzed, and will die within a month. He begs you to give him poison so that he can die. Would you? What if it were your father?

QuestionI’d have a hard time doing something like that. I mean, I don’t want to see someone I care about suffer for their last month of life. But I just don’t think I could be the one to take their life away. What if, despite the pain, God had a plan for their final month on earth? Who am I to decide what’s best?

*The Question of the Week can be found in The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.
