Item description for Basic Questions on Suicide and Euthanasia: Are They Ever Right? (BioBasics Series) by William R. Cutrer, Timothy J. Demy & Gary P. Stewart...
Overview Many in our society champion suicide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia as acceptable answers to intractable physical and emotional problems. There are alternatives to this contemporary "culture of death," however, that uphold the sanctity of human life and seek to meet the problems of fear, pain, and despair with compassion and dignity. Some of the questions answered in this work include -"How do active and passive euthanasia differ?" -"Do I have a 'right to die'?" -"Is suicide the unpardonable sin?" -"Why hasn't Dr. Kevorkian been convicted of a crime?" -"What should I do if I feel suicidal?" Advances in medical technology have blessed many with longer and healthier lives, but they have also provided us with interventions and procedures that call for serious ethical evaluation. The BioBasics Series is committed to an uncompromising respect for human life that will serve as a compass through a maze of challenging questions.
Publishers Description Each booklet in the Bio Basics Series gives information describing the controversy of the issue and the implications for Christians and the church. The series addresses each concern with answers that will honor God and protect a humanity created in His image. Written from an evangelical Christian perspective, these resources should be read by both Christians and non-Christians as they address contemporary issues often discussed in the media.
