University of Minnesota’s Bioethics Center Hosts Webinar on the Harms of Legalizing Assisted Suicide
The University of Minnesota’s Center for Bioethics discussion on the Minnesota Assisted Suicide Bill: Bad Medicine, Bad Ethics, Bad Law.
The Assisted Suicide bill was reintroduced to the Minnesota Legislature in 2021 and was modeled after the 1994 Oregon assisted suicide law. You will hear from the following national advocates on why protecting the choices of a few by legalizing assisted suicide endangers the healthcare choices for all.
- Dr. Brian Callister, MD, FACP, SFHM, will share his perspective as a clinician
- John B. Kelly, Director of Second Thoughts MA, will discuss the disability rights issues associated with this type of legislation
- Anita Cameron, Director of Minority Outreach, Not Dead Yet, will present about the racial equity issues related to legislation of this kind
- Biomedical Ethics Professor Danial Sulmasy, MD, PhD, will analyze the issues from a bioethical lens
- Senator John Hoffman will criticize the bill from the perspective of a legislator
