With David Seymour’s End of Life Bill coming up in the near future it seems an opportune time for us to visit the euthanasia question again and look at any new developments that may aid us in making informed decisions. Whatever our persuasion on this matter it presents some complicated issues. As a past member, Roberta Highton, wrote: “The devil is in the detail”. It is one of those ‘new’ scenarios where we are not able to fall back on the wisdom of the past but
have to find ethical approaches for a contemporary challenge.
We will look at some of a power point presented at a recent U3A meeting by Dr Simon Walker from the Bioethics Centre of the University and have plenty of time for discussion.
