The speaker presents 3 arguments in favor of the proposed California Humane & Dignified Death Act: the doctor’s duty to comfort, the right to privacy in the sick room & on the death bed, & religious freedom. His debate focuses on significant legal cases which support the patient’s right to decide what should happen & consider what is in the best interest of an incompetent patient & on the morality of allowing a person to die a natural but painful death versus active voluntary euthanasia.
