(http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/suicide-plan/ )
- Provide a 2-3 page paper on the ethical issues the episode
presents and how you react to them
Brief Context of the video:
In the film in the link mentioned above, FRONTLINE explores the
underground world of assisted suicide and takes viewers inside one
of the most polarizing social issues of our time told not only by the
people choosing to die, but also by their “assisters,” individuals and
right-to-die organizations that put themselves in legal jeopardy by
helping others to die.

Response and reaction to the video:
My response to the video is that all people do have the right to die
as per their free will. Although the political, religious and social
contexts vary a lot with reference to this notion due to the variability
of beliefs in this regard, but since some conditions are so painful
that one’s mind goes into agony to get rid of it. Eye witness
accounts were awful, convincing and sentimental. The video
provoked a lot of brain-storming and emotionality. I was thinking
about the effects of assisted suicide on the mental health of those
who assist it. It is bound to have a lot of adverse effects like
post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, fear of the death and
depression.
This is such a heart-touching video on a very sensitive topic that I
really felt a lot about it. These topics are usually not brought into
conversation in the usual daily lives of people. Therefore, it was an
excellent experience watching this video and thinking about such a
topic.
