The Case for Physician Assisted Suicide
(Pandora Soap Box Series)

Sheila McLean, Alison Britton

Synopsis

Physician assisted suicide occurs when a terminally ill patient takes the decision to end their life with the help of their doctor. It is a scenario which both frightens people and inflames moral passions. In this courageous and informative book the authors argue clearly and forcefully for the legalization of physician assisted suicide. They say medical advances will mean more and more terminally ill people find themselves kept alive against their wishes; the autonomy of the patient must be the deciding factor; physicians are best placed to provide the means for suicide; it is already happening in Britain anyway.
