Title Letter to the editor why the slippery slope isn't slippery: a reply to Walter M. Weber on the right to die
Date 1988
Description Walter M. Weber's remarks present a brief but revealing exposition of the right-to-life argument against legal recognition of the "right to die." I say "revealing" because while these remarks p[resent the conservative view perhaps as clearly as it has been set forth so far, they exhibit particularly vividly its major flaw. While I do think that the right-to-life argument against recognition of the right to die is to be taken seriously, and that we can learn much from the concerns it attempts to express, the lengths to which it is carried here are dangerously alarmist.
