Question description

Using the seven-step decision model, solve the following ethical dilemma. A woman was diagnosed with motor neuron disease five years ago. This is a condition that destroys motor nerves, making control of movement impossible, while the mind is virtually unaffected. People with motor neuron disease normally die within four years of diagnosis from suffocation due to the inability of the inspiratory muscles to contract. The woman's condition has steadily declined. She is not expected to live through the month and is worried about the pain that she will face in her final hours. She asks her doctor to give her diamorphine for pain if she begins to suffocate or choke. This will lessen her pain, but it will also hasten her death. About a week later, she falls very ill, and is having trouble breathing. If you were her physician, what would your decision be? Be sure to outline your decision-making process using the seven-step decision model.

Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You may use only your textbook as source material
