This presentation reported on research which attempted to empirically examine the validity of the “slippery slope hypothesis” by investigating the relationship between attitudes toward euthanasia & attitudes toward suicide. 2 measures, the Euthanasia Attitude Scale & Suicide Opinion Questionnaire were completed by 237 college students. Methods of analysis & results are discussed. Based on this investigation, support for the “slippery slope hypothesis” is, at best, weak.
