Resources for Doctor-Assisted Death Discussion Class with Nan Cressman:

March 23rd: Reflecting on end-of-life issues for ourselves

Starting with faith: What are some of the Scriptures that provide a framework for your thinking about the end of earthly life? What are some of the stories, teachings, and faith/life experiences that have shaped your understanding of death?

What makes for a “good” death? What are the components of the kind of death you would hope for, for yourself?

Difficult choices: with the medicalization of death and dying, we have the option of sustaining the life of the body almost indefinitely. How do you decide when to utilize these options and when not? Where would you draw the line in terms of life support for yourself?

What principles are important to bear in mind as we care for the dying?

Physician-assisted suicide: we’ll discuss video clips speaking for and against it. 70% of Canadians support physician-assisted suicide, and the Supreme Court of Canada plans to revisit its 1993 ban on assisted suicide soon.
