Physician Assisted Suicide and the Dark Side of Radical Individualism

May 11, 2018

On Thursday, May 10, Dr. David Goodall, a highly respected scientist who continued his botanical and ecological research well into old age, traveled to Basel, Switzerland to end his life at the age of 104. A longtime advocate for physician-assisted suicide, Dr. Goodall left his native Australia to make this final journey, aided by a GoFundMe page that quickly went viral and surpassed its modest goal. These sad events raise a host of questions about everything from human freedom to the sanctity of life. In this episode, Nathan and Cameron discuss these issues, and consider how Christianity modifies our understanding of life and death.
