Euthanasia: Should assisted suicide be permitted?
The concept of euthanasia elicits very emotional
responses on both sides of the issue. At the heart of
the matter is a moral debate about what lengths people should go to in
order to preserve human life and what really constitutes a life worth preserving.
The biggest problem in any sort of debate is that often neither side really consider the validity of the other. If we never open ourselves up to the arguments of the opposition, no basis can be created for
compromise or synthesis. This is why we present an innovative new
tool known as REALM, the Reconsideration by Analytic Learning Module.
This tool confronts the user with an ever-growing list of opposition arguments,
and, if it fails to change your mind, will at least force you to clarify
your feelings and reactions. We encourage you to try it by clicking here.
