Assisted Dying, EOL Care & the Other Blog

Decision-making in end-of-life care is brutally hard to sort out. Often, the patients whose care inspires the CEC’s work no longer have a voice of their own; they’re human beings whose state of being has diminished, perhaps disappeared. They’ve a pulse but no purpose, existing in a ringing and beeping space between life and death. Where is the line between prolonging their dying and hastening their death? God only knows. And that’s the problem. We don’t all believe in God, or the same God.
