This book presents, in a point & counterpoint format, various articles relating to health care issues. In the chapter on assisted suicide, euthanasia & mercy killing, authors debate topics such as whether or not euthanasia is a fundamental right & whether or not assisted suicide should be legalized. The final article in this chapter examines the “slippery slope” argument using the Nazi movement in Germany as an example of how one step can lead to others which are harmful to society.
