Assisted Dying: Understanding the Debate II
with Valerie Lovelace
The ethically-charged question of hastening one’s own death often prompts extreme reaction. Important concerns arise from every arena. Information is abundantly available and much of it convincing. What do these laws really provide? How is one to sort it all out? This abbreviated workshop centers on the actual process of aid-in-dying legislation, and covers many of the controversial questions involved. With the 2015 passage of California’s AID law, five states now offer legal protections for physicians and qualified terminally ill patients to include this option as part of a continuum of care and services for competent patients facing the end of their lives. Use of film and candid discussion enables participants to gain greater insight into the legal and ethical concerns of aid-in-dying, and learn more about Maine’s own history with the movement. Whether in support or opposition, this workshop will deepen participant understanding of the central questions involved in “death with dignity” legislation.
