The Case for Allowing Aid in Dying in New Zealand
This article discusses the sensitive topic of whether and when persons suffering as the result of an incurable and/or terminal medical condition ought to be allowed to end their lives with the active assistance of others. The author argues that New Zealand law should be amended to allow those competent and consenting adult persons experiencing such suffering to directly request that a willing doctor actively help end their life.
