Hello! I'm trying to write a speech/research report on the cons of the right to die law (physician assisted suicide) and I'm having a hard time.

Hello! I'm trying to write a speech/research report on the cons of the right to die law (physician assisted suicide) and I'm having a hard time finding articles arguing against the law. Are there any sources that you can direct me toward?

Answer

Here are a couple of places to look for information on this topic:

1. Opposing Viewpoints includes articles and many other types of sources dealing with controversial issues.  It can be found on the library's Current Issues guide, http://guides.library.usciences.edu/CurrentIssues. There are also some other sources on this guide you may also want to look at, such as CQ Researcher.  You can find the guide from the library's homepage as well: click on "Find" and then click on "Current Issues" in the Special Topics box.

2.  ProCon.org might also be useful.  It doesn't include complete articles, but it does give citations to sources that you can then find in other ways, such as through Google Scholar or the library's journal list.

You might also try expanding your search by using some alternate terms. For example, in addition to searching for 'right to die' and 'physician assisted suicide,' try using 'euthanasia'.
