First, please read the attached document specifically for your Discussion submission: New England Journal of Medicine ( Redfining Physicians’ Role in Assisted Dying) – Physician Assisted Suicide.docx
CNN: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Interviews Dr. Jack Kevorkian – (9:01)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjGe_ZuY1ic&feature=related (Links to an external site.)
CBS Eye to Eye : Assisted Suicide – (5:06) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6EAMD6NS9U&feature=related (Links to an external site.)
In your discussion write a response to the article. Secondly, how do you personally feel about the news items over the last decade or so concerning the actions of Dr. Jack Kevorkian? Was he an evil “Dr. Death” or was he a benevolent “Angel of Mercy”? Please integrate both the assigned readings and/or the videos into your discussion submission and make sure you make at least three direct connections to specific items in the readings and videos. Failure to do this will result in a lower discussion grade and a successful discussion post that refers to specific readings and videos will receive a higher discussion grade.
Make sure that you submit two posts: (1) “Main Post” – one post should address the discussion topic. (2) “Response Post” – one post should be a response to another person`s post. Each post needs to be 15 – 20 sentences in length. Also, make sure that you read all or almost all of the posts of your classmates. Your “Main Post” needs to be submitted by midnight on Friday. Your “Response Post” needs to be submitted by midnight on Sunday.
