Last Rights: The Struggle over the Right to Die


Second only to abortion in its incendiary power, the right to die is hotly debated by lawmakers, medical ethicists, and editorial writers across the country. It is a profound issue of conscience and quality of life that directly touches anyone with a terminally ill family member or who personally suffers a chronic or terminal illness.

An up-to-the-minute examination of the right-to-die movement and the medical, ethical, legal, and social issues surrounding euthanasia, Last Rights reveals the stories behind the headlines -- both high profile and lesser known -- through stirring personal testimonies. Airing the views of activists and opponents alike, Woodman considers the complex questions that will continue to engage us for as long as we live and die.
