Ingrid’s iPad mini 4 to Everyone (7:40 PM)
Among the issues encountered at an increasing rate across the last 50 years is the juxtaposition of the ability to extend life without attaching to it quality of life. this tends to increase a form of suffering different from that of earlier days. do you see this being impactful in assessing the desire to die and the natural encroachment of death as an extended dying period?

Re: assessment of a person’s request to die – I would like to suggest that one’s choice to die cannot be independent. Their choice is influenced by thinking of others (friends, family, not wanting to be a burden, society, government). We do not live in a vacuum. One’s life is connected to others – known and unknown to the person. [discussed in session]
