Anorexia sufferer to be fed with tube - force feeding or death by starvation?

Jun 01, 2014, 11:02 AM

A court in Dublin this week ruled that a 26 year old with anorexia nervosa is to be fed with a tube against her wishes. Force feeding or death by starvation? Should the decision be exercised by the courts in these extreme cases as an act of humanity? Or should the decision be left with the sufferer? @ejwoolf and Eileen Fegan discuss the ethical complexity of this decision #sundaysequence
