A Christian Response to Physician-Assisted Death: A Conversation with Dr. Ewan Goligher

Proponents of physician-assisted death present it as an act of compassion that recognizes the dignity of those suffering from terminal diseases and other illnesses. Dr. Ewan Goligher, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Toronto, is a critical care physician who is regularly involved with patients and their families facing end-of-life decisions. In his book How Should We Then Die? A Christian Response to Physician Assisted Death, Dr. Goligher argues that the practice of physician-assisted death actually devalues humans and is an act of secular faith that presumes to know what it’s like to be dead. In this episode, he and Dr. Keith Plummer discuss his reasons for those claims and why the Christian story provides transcendent meaning that enables us to endure suffering with confident hope.
