We talk with Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Medical Ethics Program at the University of California Irvine. Dr. Kheriaty discusses how legalizing Physician Assisted Suicide increases non assisted suicide rates. This video was originally part of our Facebook Live series of interviews.
We talk with Dr. William Toffler, Professor Emeritus of Family Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Toffler is also Co-founder and National Director of Physicians for Compassionate Care Education Foundation, a non-profit that promotes compassionate care for severely ill patients without sanctioning or assisting their suicide. Dr. Toffler will discuss how legalizing Physician Assisted Suicide has impacted the practice of medicine and doctor patient relationships in Oregon.
We talk with author and attorney Wesley Smith, a world renown expert on physician assisted suicide, about how the "safeguards" in assisted suicide laws are being removed and the practice is being extended beyond people with a prognosis of 6 months. Our first Facebook Live event, please excuse the technical problems (i.e. no video feed for Wesley).
