If your parent is very sick and is close to dying and Death comes to you and offer you that he will give your parent a chance to live longer in exchange of your life. Will you accept his offer?

If they're sick and close to death then that means that they've already retired and would probably prefer to just let go. There are a lot of elderly people who would willingly sacrifice themselves if it meant saving their children and grandchildren. I don't think they would want it to happen in reverse. Thankfully my parents aren't at that age yet.

does my parent not want to live anymore? would making them live longer increase their suffering?
then probably no.

would the life extension be reasonably long? like another 50+ years?
if I love them (which I will always), then yes, I'd do it.

but then again.... if Death is real, I'd have to ask myself... is God real? Then I'd just assume I'd be dead in 60 years. And in 60 years we can all meet in heaven.
Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons.
It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.

Specialization is for insects.

Depends on the circumstances.

Not if they are elderly, there life is already at an end. But at this very exact moment, if it ensures that they live a perfectly healthy life from here on out since the deal is made, yes I would. I would easily let myself die.

Another way of wording this would be "would you be willing to take on the burden of guilt for being responsible for your parent's death or would you want them to live with guilt of causing their child's death while having live with that guilt for much longer than they would normally live for?"
