Assignment 29968

Please read the topic i pick before starting the paper.
(THE TOPIC THAT I PICK IS Euthanasia and/or physician-assisted suicide
for non-standard reasons, such as non-terminal conditions (pain,disability,
depression, free choice, etc).
Explain the kind of reasoning you think is the best way to
approach this question, and how that reasoning supports the position
you think is strongest.
Raise an objection, and be able to respond to it.
Write an essay that conforms to the requirements below. The
paper must be 1500 to 2000 words in length (excluding the title and
reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in
the Ashford Writing Center.
The paragraphs of your essay should conform to the following guidelines:
Your first paragraph should begin with the topic question,
suitably revised. It should be focused, concrete, and on a relevant
moral problem. You should then introduce the topic in the way described
by the Week One instructions, but reflecting the developed
understanding and information you have gained about the topic and any
necessary refinement of the scope.

Follow this with a thesis statement that states your
position, and a brief description of the primary reason(s) supporting
your position. (See the handout on thesis statements provided). Finally, provide a brief preview of the overall aim and procedure of your paper.
Explanation and Demonstration of Moral Reasoning
This section of the Final Paper will explain and
demonstrate what you believe to be the best way of reasoning about the
question you have chosen, and showing how that reasoning supports the
position you have taken on the question. You might explain the
principles, rules, values, virtues, conceptions of purposes and ends,
and other general ideas that you find persuasive, and show how they
support concrete judgments.

In the course of doing so, you must make reference to at
least two of the approaches that we have examined in the course (such as
deontological, utilitarian, or virtue-based), and utilize at least one
resource off the provided list for each of the two approaches. One of
these theories may be the theory you discussed in your Week Three
Assignment, but your discussion here should be more refined.

For example, you might find the reasoning associated with
Aristotelian virtue ethics to be the most compelling, and reference
Aristotle in the process of showing how that reasoning supports a
certain conclusion. In the course of this, you could contrast that with a
utilitarian approach, referencing Mill for instance.
Objection and Response
After explaining the ethical reasoning that supports your
position, you should raise an objection and respond to it. An objection
articulates a plausible reason why someone might find the argument
weak or problematic. You should explain how it brings out this
weakness, and do so in a way that would be acceptable to someone who
disagrees with your own argument. Then, provide the best response you
can to the objection, showing how it does not undermine your position.
Your response should not simply restate your original position or
argument, but should say something new in support of it.
Provide a conclusion that sums up what you presented in the paper and offers some final reflections.
