This article discusses the assisted suicide of an American woman with Alzheimer’s disease by Dr. Jack Kevorkian. The author debates euthanasia, including factors such as the age of the patient, the period of life remaining, & the nature of the disease. He concludes with the assertion that perhaps information on how to take your own life should be made more widely available. He asks what the value of keeping people alive is when their only reason for living is their ignorance of how to die. (VM)
