Canada and Court Imposed Culture of Death: Could It Happen Here?
Wesley J. Smith
Wesley J. Smith is an author, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, a special consultant for the Center for Bioethics and Culture and featured blogger for National Review Online. He is an expert on the issue of euthanasia and a writer on bioethical issues. Smith left the full-time practice of law in 1985 to pursue a career in writing and public advocacy. He co-authored books with Ralph Nader before a personal experience with assisted suicide led him to find his passion of speaking in defense of what he calls “human exceptionalism.” He is the well-known author of “Forced Exit: The Slippery Slope from Assisted Suicide to Legalized Murder.” His most recent book is “The War on Humans.”
