Dept. of Religion and Philosophy (December 1, 2014)


MAJOR SPEAKER : Zimbelman, Joel
LENGTH : 129 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : What happens when a political entity allows physicians to help their patients end their own lives -- an activity that has been morally and legally prohibited nearly universally for at least 3000 years? This presentation will examine the moral arguments for and against such a position; review how the state of Oregon (in the United States) implemented its law allowing for such "aid-in-dying"; analyze sixteen years of data on the law's use; and conclude with an analysis of how the lessons learned in Oregon apply to the emerging assisted suicide debate in Hong Kong.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
