Premium Talking Tips: Terminally Ill Patient Refuses Life Support in Pilot Program

Don’t have any idea on what topic to discuss for Premium Talking today? Then, please check this out article by The Chosunilbo.


A terminally ill patient has chosen death for the first time since a trial run of end-of-life care was launched before a law letting terminally ill patients refuse life-support takes effect in February. This is the first such case since the Supreme Court in 2009 allowed the family of a woman who had been in a vegetative state to remove her life support. The man, who was in his 50s, had been treated for gastrointestinal cancer at a general hospital that is participating in the trial project, and died last week. He had signed the option about a month earlier.
