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 Cauthen sets forth the major arguments for and against physician-assisted death. Readers will find here all the essential information they need to approach this problem and form their own personal point of view.

Cauthen writes from a religious perspective and makes explicit the biblical and philosophical foundations for his thinking. He presents a cautious and reasoned case for changing the current law with respect to physician-assisted suicide and physician-administered death.
