QUESTION

Physician Assisted Death: a Deontological Approach

Is a physician-assisted suicide justified?The practice of mercy-killing can be judged as either humane or inhumane depending on one’s moral obligations and the consequential considerations. The controversy about the idea of death with dignity has aroused interest among scholars. This has called for the application of the existing ethical theories to justify any of the possible positions. This paper applies the deontological moral theory to examine the dilemma in question which was introduced in week one’s assignment. The deontological theory will reaffirm the week one previous position. Since the theory is majorly based on moral actions, it is likely that the end stand will disapprove PAD. The utilitarianism theory will be opposed to this because it puts into account the consequences of an act.
