Course Description

Here’s a class which will examine an issue both sensitive and important: medical assistance in dying, or M.A.I.D.. Professor Benjamin will offer insight through lectures, readings, videos, and informed discussion. Participants will explore the contexts and motivation for various forms of MAID currently offered in other countries such as Canada, Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland but not in the U.S., and critically examine the reasoning for and against them. Given the emotional as well as the medical, philosophical, and legal issues the topic involves, the course will be given in person. A tough subject, OLLIites, but one worth our close attention.
