Proponents of assisted suicide argue that terminally ill patients who are suffering extreme pain should be allowed to request help in ending their lives. Others insist that therole of physicians, family members, and friends is to make the terminally ill as comfortable as possible while they die -- not to help them end their lives. Chapters include: Is Assisted Suicide Ethical? Should Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legalized? Is Assisted Suicide a Constitutional Right? How Would Assisted Suicide Affect Individual's Rights?
