Euthanasia: The Moral Issues

Euthanasia: The Moral Issues Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether it be disconnecting life-support systems, choosing not to resuscitate, administering a lethal overdose, or choosing not to commence life-sustaining measures, the public is deeply divided: should these actions be viewed as "mercy killing," or are they acts of murder pure and simple? Is there a moral difference between "killing" and "letting die"? This book presents nineteen fascinating selections that help clear away the clouds of confusion churning at the center of this emotionally charged debate.

Synopsis:

This book brings together the views of moral theorists and physicians, advocates and opponents of euthanasia to offer a well-balanced debate of the most critical issues in this emotion-filled controversy.<P>"... the two sides presented make this book a must-read". — American Rationalist
