if you were a doctor/vet and determined who lived and died in these certain situations, what would your judgment be?
1: a family pet has cancer and there is no cure for this type, would you suggest to put the animal to sleep so it doesn't further suffer sever pains (to the point of it not walking, not eatting, etc)?
2: An elderly man has emphysema. He's on breathing life support, no chance to recover, won't qualify for a transplant, and no family members. The breathing machine is the only thing keeping him alive, and he's basically in a a coma like state now. When do you pull the plug?
3: A woman is in the hospital with bleeding. She is pregnant with twins. Twin 1 has no heart beat, and while still attached is otherwise gone. Twin 2 has very faint heart beat that is fading out because twin 1 is creating toxins and basically killing his sibling. The mother is hemorraging, and her body is starting to take in the toxins and is bordering on going into shock. She is 10 weeks pregnant. Do you do an emergency abortion to save the mother, or let them all die?
