Read&Download Arguing Euthanasia: The Controversy Over Mercy Killing, Assisted Suicide, And The "Right To Die" by Jonathan Moreno Online


The proliferation of life-prolonging technology in recent years
has made the controversy over the "right to die" and physician-assisted
suicide one of the most explosive medical and ethical issues of our day.
Dr. Jack Kevorkian's "suicide machine" has commanded front-page
coverage for several years, while in 1994 Oregon passed a measure
allowing the terminally ill to obtain lethal prescriptions for suicide,
and other states have placed similar proposals on their
ballots.

Arguing Euthanasia brings together for the first time an
impressive array of viewpoints from both sides of this emotionally
charged question as well as voices from the gravely ill and their loved
ones. Beginning with a selection of pieces from the New England Journal
of Medicine, where the debate was ignited in 1988, Arguing Euthanasia
features essays by such outspoken advocates of active euthanasia as
Timothy Quill and Sidney Hook, and important social critics and
commentators such as Nat Hentoff, Leon R. Kass, and Ronald Dworkin.

As
they probe the legal and ethical issues at the heart of
physician-assisted suicide, these essays offer invaluable insights not
only for those caring for the terminally ill but for anyone concerned
with the deeper philosophical conflict between enduring life-oriented
values and personal dignity that lies at the heart of this
controversy.

A series of essays on Assisted Suicide and the cultural and legal issues surrounding it. Interesting, but dry.
