Diane Raymond, PhD Biography

Title:
Professor of Philosophy and Women’s Studies and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Simmons College
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“A blanket prohibition against euthanasia, while clear and easy to maintain, seems to me inconsistent with feminism’s rejection of rigid absolutism and its embracing of context and ambiguity.”

“‘Fatal Practices’: A Feminist Analysis of Physician-Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia,” Hypatia, Spring 1999
