Posted at 17:29pm on 2nd August 2011
- How did reading the book either confirm or change your previous opinions about euthanasia / assisted dying?
- What, in your opinion, were the most persuasive arguments put by the author against euthanasia, and what, if anything, did you feel he omitted or glossed over?
- What is your opinion of the author's view about the cause and effect in shaping modern culture via: individualism, the rise of entertainment, "pick and mix" religion, rights and privileges over responsibility?
- Being a "burden" on one's family is cited by supporters of assisted-dying / euthanasia as being good reason to change the law. Why is this a flawed argument? Pages:33/34/38/39/42/45/57/58/110/112/116/117
- What, if at all, did you see as flaws in Dutch, Oregon and Swiss law? Pages: 45/59/60/65/66/67/73/74/75/76
- What importance do you attach to palliative care? Pages: 69/71/79/82/103/105/106/108
- Under classicism, suffering is viewed as a sacrifice for a "wrathful" God. This "doctrine of satisfaction" is cited by supporters of euthanasia as a reason for changing the law. How, if at all, can this be refuted? Pages: 85-88/126/127/
