Description
Whether it be disconnecting life-support systems, choosing not to resuscitate, administering a lethal overdose, or choosing not to commence life-sustaining measures, the public is deeply divided: should these actions be viewed as "mercy killing," or are they acts of murder pure and simple? Is there a moral difference between "killing" and "letting die"? This book presents nineteen fascinating selections that help clear away the clouds of confusion churning at the center of this emotionally charged debate.
