Rough Draft Physician Assisted Suicide (READ FULL INSTRUCTIONS)
My assignment is to submit a rough draft about a medical ethics issue. For my topic I have chosen Physician Assisted Suicide, I will attach the outline I turned in, which that is what you will be using. The paper is for you to revise, as well as add an additional page. Below I will attach the rubric as well as my outline.
This assignment will be turned in to turnitin.com so please refrain from any plagiarism.
This is to be done APA style, Pence, G. E. (2017). Medical ethics: Accounts of ground-breaking cases. New York, NY: McGraw Hill Education MUST BE USED AS A REFERENCE, as well as another credible source.
These were my professors notes therefore please adjust the paper accordingly:
It seems that your main topic is a discussion of Physician-Assisted Suicide. You do not need to include as much information about active and passive euthanasia. You might make a brief statement initially about how PAS is different from active and passive euthanasia. But then focus on the topic of PAS.
Please remember to identify and discuss the relevant ethical theories and bioethical principles for the pro and the con arguments for PAS.
Include the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that determined if PAS is a constitutionally protected right across thew U.S and also identified what level of government has the authority to determine if PAS is legal or illegal. This is a different Supreme Court ruling from the one that determined that the right to discontinue or refuse treatment (passive euthanasia) is a constitutionally protected right across all states in the U.S., so be sure to differentiate these two cases and the rulings.
Also, the official positions of the AMA and the ANA are relevant to the discussion.
