Joceyln Downie, MA, MLitt, LLM, SJD, Professor of Law at Dalhousie University, as quoted in a Feb. 22, 2018 article, "Fact Check: Has Assisted Dying Been a Legal Slippery Slope Overseas?," available at, stated:

“The bottom line is that we have not seen evidence of the slippery slope and there is no good reason to believe that the experience on that front would be any different in Australia. [Reports by Australian groups] all conclude that the slippery slope arguments are not supported by valid and reliable evidence.”
