    Thanks I'll take a look at that. Thank you
    Loads to consider for this:
    -Is euthanasia murder (consider Mohan = intention can be when virtually certain and aware of it and then another case (I forget which) saying doctors may prescribe painkillers despite KNOWING they will shorten life (thus kill under our law)).
    -Look at arguments around autonomy and such. How far does our autonomy extend? Contrast with (imo useless) religious arguments about the sanctity of life (cf quality of life).
    - Look at slippery slope arguments (dutch legalisation).
    -Is it consistent for the law to allow doctors to respect a patients rejection of medical assistance where the patient intends to die? How is this actually different from doctors straight up killing people? Difference between actions and omissions morally significant?
