Book Review – Physician-Assisted Suicide, edited by R F Weir
Lysaught M T
The reviewer finds that the essays in this book are shaped by 2 questions: Is assistance in suicide a fundamental constitutional right? & Should physician-assisted suicide (PAS) be legalized? She finds the essays valuable in their historical content, their penetrating analyses of conceptual, legal & policy issues surrounding PAS, & their clarity & accessbility to a wide audience. A summary of each article, its arguments, strengths, & weakenesses, is included.
