If Christians really were pro-person and pro-life, Christians would not want to condemn people to a painful, lingering death, right?.  Besides, assuming a patient gives consent, what is the philosophical difference between allowing someone to die (which we do everyday when we remove ventilators, etc.) and giving assistance in committing suicide?
These are good questions. Are there answers? Can, or should, improved pain relief technology be part of the conversation? If there is a legal difference between assisted suicide and allowing someone to die without intervention, is that also a philosophical difference?
These and similar questions will be addressed during our Ratio Christi discussion meeting at 4 pm. in the Rands House (5229 Cass Avenue on Main Campus) conference room 103 on the first floor. For more information see the Events tab at RatioChristi.org/WSU/Events. Light refreshments will be provided.
