Assisted Dying news in Canada

Assisted Dying in Canada by Udo Schuklenk

HealthcarePapers, 14(1) April 2014: 38-43.doi:10.12927/hcpap.2014.23969


This paper makes an affirmative ethical case in favour of the decriminalization of assisted dying in Canada. It then proceeds to defending the affirmative case against various slippery-slope arguments that are typically deployed by opponents of assisted dying. Finally, a recent case of questionable professional conduct by anti-euthanasia campaigners cum academics is flagged as a warning to all of us not to permit the quality of the professional debate to deteriorate unacceptably, despite the personal emotional investments involved on all sides of the debate.
