Debate opened in Economist

Little doubt exists as to where The Economist stands on assisted dying. In 2015 they ran a cover calling for laws to be changed in Britain and elsewhere to allow doctors to help the terminally ill and the suffering to choose when they die. As part of our Open Future initiative – in which, for its 175th anniversary, the Economist aims to remake the case for liberalism –  The Economist has asked proponents and opponents of assisted dying to write for the magazine, wanting to open up the conversation to both sides, in the spirit of respectful debate.
