Abstract:

"In Assisted Suicide C.G. Prado and S.J. Taylor provide a comprehensive discussion of relevant moral and ethical concerns. As Prado and Taylor point out, legalization is not the central issue, since doctor-assisted suicide is already taking place regardless of its illegality. Instead, the debate concerns acknowledging and sanctioning a current (albeit limited) practice, removing the criminal penalties, and framing the discussion in terms of the truly important questions: When does assisted suicide make good sense? When should it be permitted? What is the nature of patient consent? And what professional ethics should govern its provision?"--Jacket.
