Resources on Physician-Assisted Death
NOTE: The Iris Project is committed to advancing and maintaining the quality of end-of-life care. We do not believe that legalization of physician-assisted death is aligned with that goal, and may even prove detrimental to it. Where the practice is not yet legal, we oppose legalization. However, where the practice is legal, we are committed to ensuring responsible implementation focusing first on robust interventions to relieve suffering and access to quality palliative care, and upholding the integrity of all parties and persons.
Most of the resources posted here support opposition to legalization from a perspective informed and supported by facts and thoughtful reflection. We recognize and respect that there are divergent views.
