This is an interesting. As a non-jew, it seems to be an example of how the very orthodox can obey the letter of the law, and not the spirit. I don't know if that's how jewish people would interpret this, though.

I get "File Not Found" for your link, and it takes me to the main page for the Telegraph where I don't see the story. Any way of getting a better URL?

Bad news, IMO. I don't think the Creator is fooled by our ingenuity.

Isn't this the same as a bank robber building a robot to rob banks for him...Isn't he still responsible for the action?

From my understanding, it sounds about right. On the holy day(s) one can get in an elevator but not push the buttons, one can put a pot on the stove, but not turn off the heat. Its all so clear to me now.

More power to them. If there is a way to allow someone on deaths doorstep who is suffering to go out on their own terms, then I'm all for it.

That's not really voluntary euthanasia as I read the article. It's pulling the plug, which is something different.

The idea is sound enough though and could be adapted for voluntary use if needed, although there are still offences in many jurisdictions which would cause problems for those people needed to set it up.

It's an issue I have very strong feelings on. The right to a dignified death should be sacrosanct in law when a patient is terminally ill but can give their consent, either in person or via a living will.
