Question description


Will's Request 1

Is Will's request to reprogram the morphine machine justified by an ethical right to decide the course of his own death?

What are the ethical implications of Will's request that his physicians reprogram his morphine machine?


Should a law be passed making it legal for physicians to honor requests like Will's to have his morphine pump reprogrammed? Are there any predictable social harms that would ensue from the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide? If so, how serious are these negative consequences?

What is hospice, and what role do they play in palliative care? Might this be a viable option in Will's situation?
