Abstract:

The first contemporary study of assisted death to integrate insights from ethics, theology, philosophy, medicine, law, and sociology, Must We Suffer Our Way to Death? provides a broad framework within which to weigh arguments for and against the practices of assisted suicide and euthanasia as public policy in the United States. This collection of essays balances analysis of the cultural factors driving an increased interest in assisted death in Part 1 with intense, personal responses from mainline Judeo-Christian theologians in Part 2.
