Summary
As the 20th century drew to a close, a relatively new legal issue emerged in American courtrooms and dining rooms: Do individuals have a legal right to determine how and when they die? Questions regarding the ethics, legality issues and the morality of end-of-life issues such as physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia brought these questions squarely into the forefront of public and political debate. Although numerous journal articles, books, and newspaper editorials have been written about such issues, few have attempted to integrate this rapidly growing literature into a coherent overview of the legal and scientific issues involved. This book attempts to fill this void, providing a comprehensive review of scientific research, case law, and social history to inform the future research and policy decisions that will inevitably arise. Thus, the goals are to summarize, interpret, and elaborate on a growing scientific literature devoted to understanding assisted suicide and related end-of-life decisions.
