Euthanasia, Ethics, and Public Policy: An Argument against Legalisation

Synopsis

Whether the law should permit voluntary euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide is a notoriously difficult question. How cogent is the "slippery slope" objection? In other words, is it reasonable to object on the grounds that patients would be killed who did not make a free and informed request, or for whom palliative care would have offered an alternative. This book provides the general reader with a clear introduction to this central question, not least by reviewing the Dutch euthanasia experience. It will interest both sides of the debate.
