issues” (Pozgar, p 433). The only thing that has me puzzled with why people have a problem with assisted suicide is that we allow criminals to get euthanized for the wrong they have done yet we frown upon helping a patient who lives in pain and agony everyday of their lives and know that it will continue to happen with no cure or hope to heal. So while we are happy to put to sleep someone who has done wrong and let them die fast we allow someone who is suffering for no reason to continue on that way. It just seems to me that the law would benefit innocent people more than criminals. 2.After you have reviewed the cases that are posted in the "Cases" thread for Week 7 please select one and explain why you agree, or disagree with the decision.The case I chose was Smith v. Cote N.H. Sup. Ct, (1986). I agree with the findings of this case because the mother was not aware of the affects that would be extended to her child and because of the doctor’s failure to educate her on them she gave birth to a very ill child. Not only was this a big situation that costs money and had a lot of emotional damage for the mother it also affected the child. “A wrongful birth claim can be brought by the parent(s) of a child born with genetic defects against a physician who or a laboratory that negligently fails to inform them, in a timely fashion, of an increased possibility that the mother will give birth to such a child, therefore precluding an informed decision whether to have the child” (Pozgar, p 413).Pozgar, George D.
