Voluntary Euthanasia & the Common Law
Margaret Otlowski (au). Otlowski tackles the complex & controversial issue of active voluntary euthanasia & argues convincingly for a reform of the criminal law prohibition in common law jurisdictions. She critically examines the strict legal situation on euthanasia, which treats medically assisted dying as murder, & contrasts it with the position in practice. By highlighting the leniency shown to the few doctors who have actually been prosecuted for assisting their patients to die, she points to the discrepancy between the law & medical practice & argues for reform. The many arguments raised in the euthanasia debate are considered, as are steps taken towards reform in the UK, U.S., Canada, & the Netherlands (where active euthanasia is now openly practiced).
