The Last Word on Euthanasia

Dr. Theodore Dalrymple has it, reminding us that "a right to something tangible, such as the means to euthanasia or assisted suicide, implies the duty of someone to provide it," — Who Will Hire the Hangman?

The good doctor also reminds us, "It is always within everyone’s power to die if he so wishes, provided that his autonomy is respected (patient autonomy being the philosopher’s stone of medical ethics) and treatment is not forced on him when he refuses it."
