Do people have the right to die? Should the state condone the deliberate killing of a person? This program investigates the various religious, moral and philosophical arguments surrounding euthanasia, providing both 'for' and 'against' arguments for this controversial and important topic. Students will hear from many prominent figures, such as Lord Joel Joffe - the peer who has brought the Private Members Bill to legalize Assisted Dying to the UK Parliament, and Baroness Jane Campbell - a disabled peer violently opposed to Lord Joffe's bill, who successfully prevented doctors from 'letting her go' in hospital. A short drama, Jay's Choice, also assists in contextualizing the philosophical debates in an emotional 'real life' story. This informative program is bound to provoke debate on a subject which could potentially change the way in which we value life and the manner in which we perceive death.
