Life in the Balance

December 2, 2013 7:30 PM

Modern medicine has brought us near miracles. It has also brought us some of the most difficult decisions we’ll ever have to face. Are we obliged to prolong life even at the cost of terrible suffering? Should we legalize the sale of organs, such as kidneys, to save the lives of transplant patients? May a woman with a multiple-fetus pregnancy opt for fetal reduction, thus forfeiting the lives of some to possibly save others? When it seems that every available option is morally questionable, how do we decide?

Fortunately for us all, Torah and the Talmud are not silent about such matters. And this course will show you what they have to say.

When it comes to the ethics of medicine, we’re going to get real—in the most dramatic possible way. We’ll discuss actual case studies, examining many possible viewpoints as we come to grips with the issue that matters most: What kind of action—or inaction—should we take? When should we take it? And when do we edge too close to playing G-d?

More intriguing than any fictional TV show, this course will prepare you for choices that you or a loved one may be called upon to make. It is also a fascinating exposure to little-discussed aspects of Judaism.

This course is accredited for CLE, CME and CE credits!
