During one of his happy days with family and friends, he commented that if ever went into a coma for more than three months, he would never want to be a burden to anyone. He told his family and friends to promise that they should turn off life support and let him die peacefully. His mother told him to stop with the nonsense and said insisted that only God gives and takes away life. While it was not a big deal then, after the lapse of the three months, family members were hesitant about honoring Adams’s wish. His parents and even the physician argued that since Adams was not brain dead, there were high chances of him waking up. Besides, his mother was very spiritual and argued that she had sought God’s intercession and that she was sure that God would wake up her son.Some of the ethical issues raised by this case study include whether Adams family members and the physician should honor the patient’s autonomy. According to the principle of autonomy, patients have a right to make decisions about their medical care without the health care providers attempting to influence their decisions (Ubel et al., 2018). Another ethical issue raised is whether the family is acting ethically and with integrity. Adams asked his family and friends to promise to unplug life support and let him die peacefully, but they are adamant about keeping him on life support. Should his mother’s religious beliefs override Adams’s desire to be euthanized? Besides, it also raises another issue – can a wish expressed by word of mouth and not put in writing be considered legal and abiding? Can the law affect the parties involved – the parents and the physician in case they are discovered?ReferencesUbel, P. A., Scherr, K. A., & Fagerlin, A. (2018).
