Biomedical Ethics : Death and DyingName Instructor Course Institution Date Introduction The subject of euthanasia is a controversial debate in relation to its legality with respect to religion. Primarily religions hold the sanctity of life as predominant principle among other moral values. The decision to end life has social and religious impact on the individual caregivers and the family (Rayan Alzayyat & Khalil 2015). Most religions take the intention ending of life to be offensive acts against religion due to the sanctify and holiness of the human life. However most of the individuals who choose assisted euthanasia do not want to be emotional or financial burden to their loved ones (Alias Muhammad & Kassim 2015). Advanced life support is a common intervention in the modern life as more people suffer from diseases. The possible deterioration of George’s health in future necessitates Advanced Life Support healthcare access. Understanding the underlying National Publishing Company Cherry M. J. (2018).

Details: The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and acceptance of a diversity of faith expressions. The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative ethical analysis of George’s situation and decision from the perspective of two worldviews or religions: Christianity and a second religion of your choosing. For the second faith, choose a faith that is unfamiliar to you. Examples of faiths to choose from include Sikh, Baha'i, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc. In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions in detail for Christianity and your selected faith. Refer to the book entitled Called to Care: A Christian Worldview for Nursing for the list of questions. Once you have outlined the worldview of each religion, begin your ethical analysis from each perspective. In a minimum of 1,500-2,000 words, provide an ethical analysis based upon the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research, and answering the following questions based on the research: 1). How would each religion interpret the nature of George’s malady and suffering? Is there a “why” to his disease and suffering? (i.e., is there a reason for why George is ill, beyond the reality of physical malady?) 2). In George’s analysis of his own life, how would each religion think about the value of his life as a person, and value of his life with ALS (advanced life support)? 3). What sorts of values and considerations would each religion focus on in deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia? 4). Given the above, what options would be morally justified under each religion for George and why? 5). Finally, present and defend your own view. Support your position by referencing at least three academic resources e.g. the Bible, and the textbooks for each religion. Each religion must have a primary source included. A total of six references are required according to the specifications listed above. Incorporate the research into your writing in an appropriate, scholarly manner.
