Does a moral society assist someone's suicide?
As Western nations have become increasingly comfortable with assisting citizens in death, questions not merely on its legality, but its very ethics, are being raised across the globe. The act is not only allowed by countries like Spain and Belgium, but is actively celebrated in some places, like Canada, where it is hailed as an achievement in human dignity. But what are the obligations and rights that we have when it comes to the end of our lives? What goods ought a society protect?
Can a period replace the question mark looming over assisted dying?
Join the Intercollegiate Studies Institute at Stanford University on April 10th, 2024, for a lively debate on one of the most pressing ethical dilemmas the West confronts!
