In “Legalizing Assisted Dying Is Dangerous for Disabled People” Liz Carr writes the following:
No one wants us, those we love or even those we don’t to suffer and die in pain. But shouldn’t we try to get end-of-life care right before we throw physician-assisted killing into the mix? (Carr in Bioethics edited by Vaughn, page 727)
Answer the following in your DQ Response:
(1) What does Carr mean by “getting end-of-life care right”? Why does she think it would be problematic to legalize physician-assisted killing at this time?
(2) Carefully explain whether you agree with Carr or not, providing reasons for your answer and consideration of objections.
As a part of your answer to (2), carefully explain what you think it would take for our society to get “end-of-life care right” (or at least significantly improve it).
As a part of your answer to (2), include a discussion of content from the assigned readings by Oderberg and Gawande.
