ToK Presentation: Assisted Suicide
Transcript of ToK Presentation: Assisted Suicide
Ethics When I was 13 I had just moved 7,000km across a country, I was bullied constantly at school, and I was dealing with a lot of childhood abuse. Needless to say, I was not in a very good place, and I was extremely emotional. And I attempted suicide. Personal Connection My aunty Char was extremely sick a year ago, she suffered a severe heart attack and needed a quadruple by-pass. She was in a coma for a few weeks, couldn’t breath on her own, couldn’t eat on her own, couldn’t do anything, it was very unlikely that she would survive. What do we justify as a life? Dignitas In Switzerland the company Dignitas offers assisted suicide to people of Switzerland as well as foreign visitors. The Swiss Supreme Court recently issued a decision stating that chronically depressed and mentally ill people have a right to assisted suicide. Natural Sciences Due to the ubiquity of fear of death among humans, and our knowledge of evolutionary biology and behavior of near-relatives, we can intuit that fear of death is on some level instinctual, and as such, that knowledge itself could be understood in the same way for humans and many other animals- as an instinctual fear.
