On this weeks podcast John and Shane are doing something a little different. Normally here on C&SI we don't stray into the area of politics and controversy. However, there are times when we feel that we can contribute to the public conversation and the current discussion around euthanasia and assisted suicide which is a topic being discussed in the Joint Health Committee of the Irish Oireachtas is one such area of concern.
As part of that discussion we are going to have three weeks of podcasts looking into the issue. On this weeks podcast we have a conversation with with Dr Angelo Bottone, who is a lecturer in ethics and philosophy at various colleges in Dublin and also a contributor to the Iona Institute thinktank about the issue.
We look at what is being proposed in Ireland around assisted suicide and euthanasia under the term "Dying with Dignity" and the issues and challenges it raises.
Some links to consider when discussing and thinking about the issues raised. Just to note C&SI doesn't necessarily agree or disagree with the information in the links:
