9780192177469: The End of Life: Euthanasia and Morality (Studies in Bioethics)

This is a book for anyone who cares about the way we treat other human beings; for anyone who has read about cases like Karen Quinlan and wondered what ought to be done; for anyone who has stopped to consider what we really mean by respect for human life.

Euthanasia is a sensitive subject. It arouses fear and horror in some people, while others believe that in certain circumstances it is an act of humanity and compassion. James Rachels examines the ideas and assumptions behind the ethics of euthanasia, and proposes a new moral code based on his belief that there is a profound difference between "living" and "being alive."
