"Rich, the "test" (self-assessment) is entirely subjective and idiosyncratic.  If the Beverly Hills mom determines, hopefully after much reflection and discussion with others whose opinions she values, that her life is not worth living…"

"Good answer.. As long as the quantum testing is used as a helping or therapeutic resource and not as a final determiner of the euthanasia.  But pain and pleasure are so subjective, how can the numbers be meaningful? Let's say two people…"

Voluntary Euthanasia: A Quantum Theory of Moral Action (part 3)

This is part 3 of a multi-part series.I contemplate writing a book on this subject intended for the educated reader, tentatively titled “My Death, My Choice: A Secular View of Voluntary Euthanasia” in which this quantum theory will play an integral role.  The book assumes that readers hold a secular humanist worldview.  That is, secular in the sense that no deities, afterlives, or other supernatural notions are involved, and humanistic in the sense that the wellbeing of human and non-human…See More

"Extremely well-stated and complete set of key issues. I'm glad to see the animal rights point included. This is one of the atrocities of religion we often forget about. Thank you for sharing."
