Right to Die with Dignity: An Argument in Ethics, Medicine, and Law
Raphael Cohen-Almagor (au)
Few issues are more divisive than “the right to die.” One camp upholds “death with dignity,” regarding the terminally ill as autonomous beings capable of forming their own judgment on the timing and process of dying. The other camp advocates “sanctity of life,” regarding life as intrinsically valuable, and believes that it should be sustained for as long as possible. Is there a right answer? Here is a balanced approach, viewing the dispute from public policy and international perspectives. Offers a compelling, interdisciplinary study in med., law, religion, and ethics. Makes a distinction between active and passive euthanasia and discusses legal measures that have been invoked in the U.S. and abroad. Makes a plea for voluntary physician-assisted suicide.
