The legalisation of euthanasia, or assisted dying has long been a subject of heated debate,
which intensified with the introduction of the parliamentary Bill, Assisted Dying for the
Terminally Ill, by Lord Joffe. Although this Bill was blocked by the House of Lords last year,
similar bills will be introduced in the future. Dr Simon Kenwright argues the case for, and
Dr Helen Watt states the case against, assisted dying.
