New student law review article on “Death Tourism”
SSRN has a new student article, Exploring the Potential for American Death Tourism. The author discusses the availability of physician assisted suicide in the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg, and the possibility that American citizens will travel to these countries to die. He evaluates the enforcement and efficacy of foreign laws prohibiting travel for purposes of obtaining assistance with suicide, and discusses the constitutionality of any American attempt to prohibit death tourism.
