Step 1: Answer all of the questions below. 1. What does Deveterre conclude from his brief historical overview concerning euthanasia and private decisions to kill? 2. What does Deveterre conclude concerning the recent court battles over euthanasia? 3. Deveterre offers numerous distinctions in order to clearly define euthanasia. What is his conclusion? Compare and contrast his definition of euthanasia to that of the Roman Catholic Church quoted in the Perspective section of this module. 4. According to Deveterre and Kelly, can killing called euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide be morally justified? Compare and contrast their positions. 5. What is Deveterre’s prudential ethical conclusion concerning the “Case of Diane?” What reasons does he give for his position? Do you agree with him? Why or why not? 6. What does Kelly conclude in Chapter 21 concerning suffering and pain management? Step 2: After answering the questions, conclude with the following process: 1. Summarize the main points made in the reading or readings as concisely, but as completely, as you can. What went on in these texts (whether in print or online)? Feel free to provide brief illustrative quotations from the texts (with page numbers in parentheses after the quotations) to help make your point. Where there are many readings assigned, their main points generally overlap; therefore, do your best to succinctly present what’s most crucial. 2. State what you thought was most interesting about what you read. Your aim should be to personalize (that is, say what these readings taught you, what you found interesting or of value), rather than to summarize (as you did in the first part). Use phrases like the following: “From these readings, I learned…” or “I didn’t used to understand…but now I do because…,” or “What I found interesting was…,” and so on. Sources: Devettere, Raymond.
