Consider the ways that your family deals with life and death. Explain how your culture or religion and customs address the acceptance of a new family member (e.g., through marriage, birth, or adoption) and the loss of a beloved family member (e.g., miscarriage or death).
My religion is Christian Catholic and I am originally from the Middle East, my culture is Arab.
How did the readings in this course help you to understand these processes?
State your thoughts about the following:
- whether to abort a fetus who has genetic defects
- the decision regarding saving the life of the baby vs. the mother during childbirth
- a living will or Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders. For example, if you were in a serious accident and now required life-support systems to survive, would you want that? Alternately, if you were terminally ill, would you choose to die rather than to receive potentially painful treatment? A living will describes your desires so that your family or appointed guardian can execute your wishes on your behalf.
