Panel makes perfect sense


Re Assisted death panel stacked, Letter July 21 Reader Susan Bracken asks if it makes sense for a three-person panel to discuss the implementa­tion of “assisted dying” to include two people against it. I would argue it makes perfect sense. It’s more likely to provide recommenda­tions that meet the Supreme Court’s decision in the most limited way possible, which would provide better safeguards for the vulnerable, such as the elderly or disabled, compared to a panel wanting a very liberal interpreta­tion.
