Alright. Well, I have a friend who's working on an essay about assisted suicide. It's a debate project, where he has to write a persuasive essay on physician assisted suicide, and then debate about it with another one of my friends. He's doing the side against it, and asked me to help. Since I'm mostly for it, and so are most books/websites, he's having a hard time finding much of anything against it, and is almost going for it as well. I suggested he ask around, which he agreed to, but that isn't going very well. He can't ask people at his church, since they're apparently really busy on Sundays, and the project is due on Tuesday, the day before one of their "off-days". All of my other friends are for it, none of my family has an opinion, and I'm not allowed in my grandmother's church again. .-. I'll feel guilty if I don't give him something to use, so I shall turn to the internet! (It's tubes!) Here are some questions I'd like answers and opinions on: 1) Are you for or against physician assisted suicide? (I'll be calling it PAS now, for less typing.) What are your reasons? 2) Basing this off of your answer above, are their any situations where you would feel the opposite way? (IE, if you said you are for PAS, are there any situations where you would be against it?) 3) Here's a hypothetical situation. 4) Let's change that a bit. Anything else you can add would be great. Keep in mind, though, my friend and I are only High School freshmen, but apparently the English course we're in is a college level. Thanks again, and if no one here is against it, I guess I can give the info to my other friend.
