McGill University professor Margaret Somerville recently gave a talk in Abbotsford titled "Is Religion the Only Reason to be Anti-Euthanasia?"
"What we have to realize is that people who are pro-euthanasia and those who are anti-euthanasia radically differ in how they view both dying and death and what euthanasia involves," she said.

"Those differences reflect profound differences in what we believe it means to be human."
