How do you want to die? That was the question in a film we watched in my Ethics of Death and Dying class.
Did you know that for many that are dying, the use of ever larger doses of morphine to control pain, expedites their death.
A basic principle of ethical reasoning is that like situations should be considered alike.
So consider two similar situations in which a drug is administered to alleviate suffering that eventually causes death. One is called morphine, the other is called physician assisted suicide.
Now yes I know about "double effect" and "unintended consequenses" and other viable arguments, but that's beside the point. The question is "how do you want to die?"
