Yes, our lives are sacred. Yes, we should do our absolute best to preserve our life on earth. But what happens when medical technologies, or medicine, are simply prolonging death instead of preserving life? On this week’s episode of indoubt, we’re joined by author and trauma surgeon, Kathryn Butler, who shares her unique perspective on end-of-life medical care. Isaac and Kathryn discuss how easy it is to blur the lines between life and death with today’s technological advancements and the effects that has on each one of us. Talking through questions like: What is too much suffering? How does someone make a life-ending decision for their loved one? And, how do we balance the sovereignty of God with medicine?
