Slippery slope

Slippery slope

A new article debating the links between voluntary and non-voluntary euthanasia has been published by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics journal. The academic work, called Is there a logical slippery slope from voluntary to non-voluntary euthanasia?, aims to show how arguments against euthanasia, based on fears that it could lead to further questionable killings, still hold water.
    It is written by Dr David Albert Jones, director of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre, research fellow in bioethics at Blackfriars Hall, Oxford, and author of The soul of the embryo. ‘Slippery slope’ arguments have been important in the euthanasia debate for at least half a century, according to the Roman Catholic author.
