There was a fairly heated debate a few years ago here in Kentucky with regard to medical care and a death row inmate. If you are interested, you can search Robert Foley and read about his situation. You can find him in the list of Kentucky death row inmates and there are a number of news articles as well as the court case (Foley vs Commonwealth).
If you are interested, you can write a short (150 words) justification for your position. Simply choose whether you think we owe him a hip replacement or not and justify your decision ethically
