The Right to Die
V1 Definitions and Moral Perspectives: Death, Euthanasia, Suicide, and Living Wills, V2 Who Decides? Issues and Case Studies
First Published in 1996. The key issue in all right-to-die matters is “who decides?” Who will decide whether life support should be terminated? Who will decide if a person is competent to make life and death decisions? The law is quite clear that, in cases of conscious, competent adults, the individual is free to make all decisions relating to his or her care and future. This volume is a collection of writings and case studies around the topics of personal choice, AIDS and informed consent, due process and the right to die.
