Dr Oz: Keith Ablow vs Montel Williams
Dr Oz did a show called “Do You Have The Right To End Your Own Life,” which featured Montel Williams who spoke about his suicide attempt (click on this link to read more about it: Montel Williams Suicide Attempt). According to Keith Ablow, MD, Psychiatrist and Fox News Contributor, euthanasia is “a prescription in bad medicine" and the practice should be illegal. Dr. Ablow stated that this is not a new debate and that all doctors need to be on the side of prolonging life and instilling the will to live. Dr. Ablow stated that the Netherlands has been practicing euthanasia for years and that it’s basically a feeling of despair that drives people to do this. It is a slippery slope trying to decide whether a person is just depressed or are they actually wanting to end their own lives because they are terminally ill.
