Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia: A Guide to the Evidence


The Anscombe Centre, a Roman Catholic academic institute that engages with the moral questions arising in clinical practice and biomedical research, has published an ‘evidence guide’ in order to inform the debate about whether to legalize physician assisted suicide or euthanasia in the United Kingdom. Most of the sources cited here are also relevant to the debates on assisted suicide or euthanasia in other counties. It will help your to get a sense of the different issues at stake and where to find further information, especially the most reliable information that is freely available online. This guide aims to be useful for students, scholars and research assistants to officials or parliamentarians. More than this, it is offered to anyone who is concerned about these issues and wishes to assess the evidence.
