I quote from an article on http://www.botox4thebrain.com/?p=1149
“Grace as a Third Option
The situation is such that three options can be summarized as follow:
The State urges a doctor to force-feed a prisoner. This can be seen as the equivalent of torture. It will enable the prisoner to live. But how can they force-feed him for five years?
The State let the prisoner die, which can be seen as non-assistance in person in danger.
The State shows grace and allows the prisoner to serve is sentence at home, wearing electronic tags.
The dilemma presents itself: the State does not want to let her citizens die in prison. Doctors ought not to force anyone for treatment. In other words, either we let the prisoner die in prison, or we enable doctors to use force to treat the patient. Both options seem ethically wrong. Indeed, most would agree that we should not let people die in prison and that we should not force-feed a person. Therefore, we need a third solution, in this case: grace. Rappaz’s lawyer and Phillip Roch have already suggested this option.”
