In the early part of July 2009, the former president of the Philippines made again a choice. But, this time, it was her final decision. To rest in peace. In the health care context and from the experts perspective similar to Buchanan and Brock’s in 1989, according to Megan Johnstone in 1999 of Bioethics: A Nursing Perspective. Sydney, N.S.W.: Harcourt Saunders. http://www.questia.com/, Hanford, Linda, 1994, "Chapter 10 Nursing and the Concept of Care". In Ethical Issues in Nursing, ed. Hunt, Geoffrey: 181-197. New York: Routledge. http://www.questia.com/, and Hunt, Geoffrey, ed. 1994, Ethical Issues in Nursing, New York: Routledge. http://www.questia.com/, this was Mrs. Corazon C. Aquino’s particular choice and decision under the 4th stage of colon cancer condition. Clearly, the decision was recognized and respected by the health care professionals who attended her case. The option she made was an exact example of a patient’s competence to make a choice.
