Euthanasia and the Law

  • Tom Campbell

Abstract

In considering the controversial issue of euthanasia, the author looks at the problems involved in legalizing certain forms of euthanasia, the advantages and disadvantages of "living wills" legislation, and possible civil or criminal liability of doctors who refrain from using extraordinary measures to prolong the life of dying patients. Alternatives to euthanasia and consequent legal developments are also discussed.
