Dying Right: The Death with Dignity Movement

Synopsis

Dying Right is the first work to provide a comprehensive and first-hand account of the Death with Dignity movement in the USA and around the world. The book also provides an in-depth look at Oregon, the first place to legalize physician-assisted suicide. Engaging the question of how to balance a patient's sense about the right way to die, a physician's role as a healer, and the state's interest in preventing killing, Dying Right captures the ethical, legal, moral and medical complexities involved in this ongoing debate.
