Q) Should medical science always prolong life?
Sample Paragraph :
Medical science should not always prolong life because doing so could compromise the patient’s sense of dignity. One of modern-day Singapore’s founding fathers and senior politician, Mr S.Rajaratnam wrote, when he was bedridden after a series of minor strokes, on what he called the “Cyborg” problem. “The Cyborg problem arises because modern medicine, surgery, technology and so-called miracle drugs can prolong the process of dying not just by a few weeks or months, but spread over many years during which the human body is transformed into a cyborg – a corpse which simulates life… and a brain drained of its humanity.”Such is a possible reflection that a patient could have when he is denied his right to the naturalness of his own mortality.
