Hey, all. I'm in the process of writing a paper on physician-assisted suicide, and I'm trying to find the name of a particular patient whose case I've heard about in passing.
I want to say the guy's name was Donald, but that could be way off. Anyway, he was in a car accident and was burned very badly. His ongoing treatment caused excruciating pain, and he repeatedly begged the doctors to withold treatment and simply let him die. They didn't, though, and he went on to fully recover and lead a healthy, productive life. Obviously, since he has not committed suicide, this man no longer wishes to die. However, when asked if doctors should have respected his requests, he still claims that they should have.
I don't know where to look to find the guy's name or any info on him, so anything is helpful and much appreciated.
