Euthanasia

Welcome to this lesson from the Matters of Life and Death unit. In this lesson we will be looking at religious views on euthanasia. For some people this will be a sensitive topic. If that applies to you, you may want to do the rest of this lesson with a trusted adult nearby who can support. Please make sure you have a pen and paper ready, and have cleared a quiet space for you to work in. If you have the TV or music on and can turn it off, please do. If you are not using your mobile phone for the lesson, it is best to put it to one side so you are not distracted by it. You will also need two different coloured pens: black or blue and another coloured pen, such as green or red. Click start when you are ready to think hard!
