Fatal Flaws Screening in Channel Islands Helps Defeat Vote on Assisted Suicide
by Kevin Dunn

I had always hoped this film would be a game-changer. Looks like it’s happening.

I’ve just returned from The Channel Islands, UK where we had two screenings of Fatal Flaws: Legalizing Assisted Death. One in Guernsey and another in  Alderney.  These happened just prior to a three day debate and vote on assisted suicide.  According to The Guardian,  “if the Requete had passed, Guernsey would have become the first place in the British Isles to offer euthanasia for people with terminal illnesses.”  Instead they voted to improve palliative care on the island…

Fatal Flaws: A Canadian film chronicles the march of euthanasia
by Denyse O’Leary

I first became interested in euthanasia in 1972 when I unexpectedly received a letter from a Florida death with dignity group, in connection with a public plea for the euthanasia of a child who had Down syndrome.

I recalled that letter while watching the international film premiere, in Ottawa on May 8, of Fatal Flaws, a film by Canadian broadcaster Kevin Dunn…


In the film Fatal Flaws, filmmaker Kevin Dunn explores assisted suicide laws around the world and the impact they have had and fundamental questions they have created.

Music as Therapy in Assisted Dying?

The effects of assisted dying laws on the culture continue to astound me. Recently,  I spoke with a music therapist who was looking for my perspectives on Canada’s Medical Aid in Dying Law (MAiD) as I  have just finished my second film on the subject.  Kristen Morrow, MTA is a conscientious objector who will be part of an upcoming forum in Vancouver, entitled Responding to Change: Music Therapy Perspectives on Navigating Assisted Suicide” .  Kristen will be presenting alongside another therapist who used music therapy in a MAiD procedure.
