Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Does a Person Have to BeDying to have the Right to Die? 1. Karen Ann Quinlan 2. Nancy Cruzan 3. Terri Shiavo 4. Jamie Butcher 5. Dax Cowart Physician Assisted Suicide 1. It's over Debbie, Dr. Anonymous 2. Diane and Dr. Timothy Quill: published in New England Journal of Medicine. Diane washis patient of Quill as a primary care doctor for 8 years--had had vaginal cancer and had an excellent recover. Both of her parents and her were alcoholics, but she had had many years of sobriety, her clinical depression had been treated and she went to him because she felt exhausted and drew some blood and within a short period of time, learned that she had a virulent form a leukemia. Only 25% survive and of those whodo, the treatment is brutal nausea, vomiting, weakness. She did not want treatment and wanted to have the illness take over her--both her son and husband agreed that she did not have to have treatment. Went to the Hemlock society to learn how to foreshorten her life. Wrote prescription barbiturates--prescription is not written to take all at once because pharmacist would not write the prescription, and she invited friends to come individually and then doctor was called once she was dead and he called the Coroner. After writing the article NY took him to court, but he wasacquitted. 3. Dr. Jack Kevorkian: From MI, was an anatomical pathologist in CA(did autopsies), and after retirement he moved back home and decided that people should be allowed to end their life if they had a good reason(1990's). His sister would video tape an interview with patients who would come to him. First person to come to him was Janet Atkins at 50 years old and was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's-she passed the interview with him and she is ready to for his machine(The Thanatron) to die: 3 liquids(sodium pentathol, pancromium bromide, potassium people should be allowed to end their life if they had a good reason(1990's). His sister would video tape an interview with patients who would come to him. First person to come to him was Janet Atkins at 50 years old and was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's-she passed the interview with him and she is ready to for his machine(The Thanatron) to die: 3 liquids(sodium pentathol, pancromium bromide, potassium chloride) with an I.V., and drives her to the emergency room and leaves her in the parking lot of the hospital after calling the hospital informing them of a dead body. Another man could not turn the wheel(too sick) so he turned the nob on the I.V., so this was active assistance in death. Ran for Congress in 2008 after he was granted parole, and died in 2011. State Initiatives for Death and Dignity: has these words to not have people upset and not have the words doctor and suicide in it. Physician Assisted Suicide in Oregon: 1994 passed on the ballot as a referendum, and you can get enough signatures on a petition to defeat it, so it passed. However,many right to life people that blocked it going into place. Greater majority passes it in 1997--must be a resident in the state of Oregon, 2 doctors have to certify that you are going to die within the next 6 months, at least 18, mental sane, know about hospice, not depressed, make contact with Dr. 3 times, one in person and the next time, 15 days apart, and in between you have to write a letter to them, and at that point, the physician will prescribe a legal dose. *NOTE:Legal in 5 states--ruling in supreme court, signed by legislature, or states that have a referendum signed on the ballot. New Mexico has it--doctors can take part Abortion: 42 million abortions per year worldwide, and the majority are preformed outside the hospital. 1.2-1.5 million in the US.In 2014, it was 1.2 million, so it had dropped a bit 1. Spontaneous Abortion=Miscarriage: the medical term for a miscarriage-- environment is such that the fetus cannot continue 2. Induced Abortion: something chemical or medical/surgical that has been done to remove the embryo or the fetus Reasons: extreme poverty, illness on mother, advanced age of mother, extreme youth of mother, having too many children with the feeling that one more could not be cared for, and the disgrace of bearing an illegitimate child, or a child of different races, fear of discovery of infidelity, rape, or incest History of Abortion: Thrust a sharp object up into the uterus( sharp tree branch), taking hot coals from a fire place--lying down and putting them from the abdomen, jumping from a high place and landing on the abdomen, shaman/witches gave medication that caused extreme vomiting or diarrhea, *More Modern Methods: knitting needles, spoke from an umbrella or a coat hanger that has ben unbent, douched with some chemical solution or lye abdomen, jumping from a high place and landing on the abdomen, shaman/witches gave medication that caused extreme vomiting or diarrhea, *More Modern Methods: knitting needles, spoke from an umbrella or a coat hanger that has ben unbent, douched with some chemical solution or lye Greeks--approved of abortion--Aristotle saw it as population control and Plato that if she was over 40 you could/should have an abortion Rome--man had complete control over his wife, so if he wanted her to get an abortion, she would have to Assyria--if a woman got an abortion, she would be impaled with a stake Jews--did not approve Christians--called it infanticide (i.e. killing a baby) Catholic Church--said that a woman could abort a male child within 40 days because that is when it got its soul and 80 days for females, but how did they know the sex of the baby in the 3rd century? Could abort before quickening occurred--baby moving around(but women could lie)--the colonies took on English common law, so this was true in the colonies as well 1860--Abortion became illegal in all the states that existed and the one exception was to save the life of the Mother. Not federal or national, but from each state. 1. Safer to take the fetus to term than to be aborted(procedurally)--the opposite is true for today 2. Biologist now understood how conception took place and if you know how it takes place, you can avoid it, so condoms can be used and were made out of sheep intestines 3. Sex for pleasure was BAD!So, if you got pregnant it was a punishment for being bad, but the female is being punished, not the male. Fear of pregnancy with no hope for abortion would keep you from having sex.
