“They include an incompatibility with the moral and professional commitment of physicians, a weakening of society’s desire to provide optimal care for the terminally ill, increased societal pressure on sick patients to request assisted suicide, and most importantly, possible abuses and extensions of euthanasia which may lead down the slippery slope to Nazism and selective genocide.”
