In this week’s assigned content, we listen to a podcast detailing the story of a family who was forced to make a difficult end of life decision.
The decision to withdraw care, especially in cases of chronic or debilitating illness or injury, is one of the most problematic ethical dilemmas many of us will ever face.

It is imperative that we prepare to encounter these situations by considering our own moral position regarding issues such as advance directives, withdrawal of life-supporting therapies, and the meaning of “death with dignity”
