                                                                          Paper 1

This final chapter on dying and bereavement offers numerous possibilities for extra discussion.

You might comment on Terri Shiavo, the young Florida woman whose situation prompted so much controversy.  Her husband asked a court to order the removal of her feeding tubes, and the state legislature and even our US congress, taking up her parents' fight to keep her alive, passed legislation seeking to reverse that order.

                                                      Questions to tie into paper.

 Is this a private matter? 

Does the government have an interest?

 How should such decisions be made? 

What can we learn from this sad situation?

 What about euthanasia or physician assisted suicide? 

Our laws differ from laws in many other countries. 

Is there a "right to die"? 

What are the ethical considerations?

                                Other Question for students---I have given some response too.

 For those of you that are older (middle age and up), do you have a plan on how you want to die? (Answer) Yes I would prefer to pass of old age in my own bed and without pain.

 Do you have legal directives such as a living will or a durable power of attorney? (Answer) being only 45 years old I figure it is too early to have these at present.

 For those of you that are younger, what about the elders that you care about, do they have wishes and/or documents concerning how they want to die?  (Answer) Yes I do help take care of my elderly folks and they have both living wills and directives that I am in charge to carry out as executive of both.

How important is it to make these decision ahead of time? (Answer) very important.
