Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The burglar's request, "your money or your life," follows our rescue imperative made possible with technological advances in medicine. We can now keep extremely sick and dying patients alive at great cost. Often, we spend large amounts of money on extraordinary treatment and the patient still dies. The Rev. Meyer examines ethical considerations stemming from our high tech capabilities.
