Summary
  • Examines the debate over physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia in the U.S., looking at various arguments for and against the practice; and includes a chronology, a list of key people in the history of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, a glossary, a guide to further research, and a selection of resource information
  • "Opinions are strongly divided on the issue of physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. The idea of helping someone die or letting an individual die raises many ethical questions. Supporters feel that physician-assisted suicide is humane and comforting while opponents argue that it is cruel and appalling. Some people are pleased to know that they may choose not to suffer through a painful terminal disease, while others believe that no matter what an individual may experience no one should help that person terminate his or her life. In Physician-Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia, author Lisa Yount explores all sides of this issue and offers a complete examination of sources for further research."--BOOK JACKET
