Well, at least one can hardly accuse this ethicist of mere armchair philosophising:

A man with a neurodegenerative disease testified to [the Canadian] Parliament that nurses and a medical ethicist at a hospital tried to coerce him into killing himself by threatening to bankrupt him with extra costs or by kicking him out of the hospital, and by withholding water from him for 20 days.

Of course, what one really wants to know is missing, i.e. was the ethicist a utilitarian?
