Assisted suicide is a controversial subject about which many people have strong feelings pro and con. I am not going to use this space to advocate for one side of the question or the other, but I think the discussion that’s currently going on in Canada, where the national government is implementing a court ruling legalizing euthanasia, is bringing out some of the complicated issues that it raises.
This item in the (Canadian) National Post really highlights the complications of legalizing euthanasia, many of which are not immediately obvious. As a professional who reads death certificates, and deals with life insurance claims, fairly frequently, I can really relate to the debate on those particular aspects of the topic.
Via The Corner, where the writer points out that this topic is closer to home than you might think.
