Ethics and the Criminal Law: Euthanasia

This essay* was published by ZD MMP in April 2009.  It was instrumental in persuading the Director of Public Prosecutions to change his policy in respect of cases of encouraging or assisting suicide and has since being cited with approval in the higher courts (in Middle Reality, naturally).

Ian Sadler, the author of the essay, is a regular contributor to ZD.

*full title: Does A’s earnest, considered and rationally understandable request to be killed (or helped to die) make the criminalisation of B–who provides the requested assistance–impermissible?
