We hear from two Christians with opposing views on euthanasia. Both views are backed up by interpretations of Biblical references and situations. Issues raised include Christian views on suffering, interpreting the Bible and arguments for and against legalising euthanasia.
Students could note down the main arguments put forward. Which is the most convincing, and why? Using the quotations at the beginning, how do you think each party would interpret these in support of their own viewpoint? What examples of Christ's teachings does each party use to back up their own views? Encourage a debate about what the impact of legalising euthanasia would be.
