- Con to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
“While we share many of the concerns and values espoused by proponents of PAS [physician-assisted suicide] and AVE [active voluntary euthanasia], we believe that existing prohibitions on PAS and AVE should be maintained for the forseeable future. Central to our argument is the view that society does not have a sufficient understanding of how and why competent individuals are rendered vulnerable near the end-of-life.”
