In this editorial, Kluge states his belief that the Criminal Code is ethically flawed; that Section 241 which makes assisting suicide a crime should be struck down; & that the Canadian Medical Association should reconsider its’ negative position toward assisted suicide. He bases his belief on the argument that the Criminal Code violates 3 fundamental ethical principles: autonomy & respect for persons; equality & justice; & beneficence. The case of Sue Rodriguez is used as illustration. (4 refs.)
