I'm going to ask you a few questions:
Can a doctor ever refuse to treat a patient?
Is it the same for a paramedic?
Can there ever be mitigating circumstances?
What would you do when your conscience tells you one thing, whilst the rules tell you another?
I'm going to ask you to read an article from a German news website. Not my normal reading, but it grabbed my attention via another site.
Then go back and have a look at an old blog post.
And then, once you've had a while to think about it, to come back and comment on what you think.
I'm not asking for judgement, just opinion. Right, wrong, or somewhere inbetween?
Finally - be honest: what would you have done if placed in such a dilemma?
