‘Death with dignity’ is a concept that has been getting much attention lately. On April 10th the School of Criminal Justice is bringing together a panel of experts to discuss the legal, ethical, medical, and personal aspects of end of life decision making. Euthanasia is a difficult topic to deal with, but this discussion panel hopes to clear up some of the confusion around the subject.
How would you like to die? This is a morbid question that make many of us uncomfortable, but despite that, it is part of an important discussion that we should all consider. If you had a terminal, debilitating disease, would you choose death on your own terms? And should you be allowed to? There are many aspects around the topic of euthanasia, and the School of Criminal Justice is bringing together a panel to discuss the legal, ethical, medical, and personal aspects of end of life decision making, as well as a discussion around the current movement to legalize ‘death with dignity’ right here in New York. The event is free and open to the public. It will be held on Friday, April 10th from 12:30-2:00 in Milne Hall 200. If you plan to attend, please register.
