Summary
Whether euthanasia or assisted suicide should be legalized is one of the most pressing and profound questions facing legislators, health care professionals, their patients and indeed all members of society. Regrettably, the debate is too often characterized by rhetoric rather than reason. This book informs the debate by acquainting anyone interested in this vital question with some of the major ethical, clinical, legal, and theological issues involved. The essays it contains are authoritative, balanced, and readable: authoritative in that they have been commissioned from some of the world's leading experts; balanced in that they reflect divergent viewpoints (including a vigorous debate between two eminent philosophers); and readable in that they should be readily intelligible to the general reader. This accessible, fair, and learned collection will enlighten all who wish to be better informed about the debate surrounding this momentous issue. -- Publisher description
