Ethics Program 3
Assisted Suicide & End of Life Care?
"Dying Well "
Chapters: 12
..................................................................................................

The mystery of death is one of the great mysteries of life. As we seek to understand death, we learn that the experience is most often filled with pain, suffering and difficult choices. Most of all, we come to recognize the profound meaning of end-of-life care, how it is practiced, and the moral concerns it raises. Oregon is the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. What will we learn about terminally ill patient's rights regarding their care and ultimately their death? And what will we learn from opponents who believe that assisted suicide is really a plea for better end-of-life care?
