Can a 5-yr-old Decide Her Own Death?

This human interest piece from The Daily Beast discusses a distressing case of child illness and likely death.  Students will find interesting the case itself and the ethical issues–but also the writer’s characterization of religion, “heaven” put in quotation marks, and assertions about what is certain and what is not.  Hebr. 11:1-3 comes to mind.  Compare also the CNN dateline at Heaven over Hospital.
