difficulties of reporting on euthanasia

February 20, 2010

Hi there,

This week's BioEdge seems largely devoted to the controversial issue of euthanasia and assisted suicide. We didn't plan it that way, but it cropped up several times.

This is an issue about which it is difficult to write without copping vehement criticism from one side or the other. Occasionally I have even received some hate mail in response to articles I have written – "I hope that you die in excruciating agony of cancer" and so on – but at BioEdge we do our best to present the facts fairly. Our apologies if some readers see it differently.

We have improved the layout of the front page of the website so that it is easier to make comments.
