Reader in the School of Communication, Arts, and Critical Enquiry at La Trobe University
Pro to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
"My central thesis is that there is a strong case for legalising physician-assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia but that it is neither justifiable nor necessary to do so for non-voluntary euthanasia."
Experts MDs, JDs (Lawyers), PhDs and Religious Leaders with significant involvement in end-of-life issues. [Because end-of-life dilemmas require medical, ethical, legal, and in some case religious considerations, we view MDs, PhDs with a bio-ethical focus, and JDs/religious leaders with significant involvement as "experts" in the euthanasia debate.] [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
