  1. How dead is the federal constitutional right to assisted suicide ?

    Article - En anglais

    In both cases, the judgment of the Court was unanimous.

    Closer scrutiny of the opinions in the cases, however, suggests that we may not have seen the last of a federal constitutional right to assisted suicide.
