Quebec’s assisted suicide public hearings


Queen’s University professor Udo Schuklenk is available to discuss Quebec’s public hearings that are reviewing medical practices on euthanasia.

The philosophy professor specializes in medical ethics. He is heading an expert panel for the Royal Society of Canada and preparing a public report on key aspects of end-of-life issues, including voluntary euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide.

Prof. Schuklenk can discuss relevant legislation in Canada, and provide insight on the experiences of other countries that decriminalized assisted suicide. Due to his involvement in the report, he can’t express his personal opinions, but can discuss in general the arguments for and against assisted suicide.
