Summary
"Dealing with death is an issue as old as the human race, but Western societies have rejected euthanasia as a solution for over two thousand years. Why, then, are we considering legalizing it now, especially when we can do so much more than in the past to relieve suffering? In 'Death Talk', a passionate and wide-ranging enquiry into the euthanasia debate, Margaret Somerville argues that people who promote the legalization of euthanasia ignore, or deliberately confuse, the vast ethical, legal, and social differences between euthanasia and natural death. Permitting euthanasia, Somerville demonstrates, would cause irreparable harm to respect for human life and society."
