The Ethics of Assisted Death: When Life Becomes
a Burden Too Hard to Bear

Kenneth Cauthen


Are we ever justified in choosing to die by deliberate action? Is it ever right to aid those who request assistance in dying? These questions are widely debated today, and in this book, a nationally recognized authority in theology and ethics examines the major arguments for and against physician-assisted death. Writing from a religious perspective, Kenneth Cauthen presents explicit biblical and philosophical foundations for a cautious and reasoned case to change the current laws concerning physician-assisted suicide and physician-administered death.
