Four Views on the Issue of Legalizing PAD: A Legal Research Guide
By: Candle M. Wester-Mittan

The issues surrounding physician-assisted death (PAD) are not new to the legal areana. However, with the enactment of the Oregon Death with Dignity Act, more attention has been focused on the subject of legalizing PAD during the past decade. Oregon is truly a minority in the United States by allowing legalized PAD. The majority of states have legislation that clearly sets forth they do not condone or authorize assisted death. This issue of PAD is not limited to the United States. Views both for and against the legalization of PAD can be noted in various international communities. There are four sections to Wester-Mittan’s Physician-Assisted Death:
  • Proponent resources for legalizing PAD
  • Opponent resources against legalizing PAD
  • Resources on neutral treatment for legalizing PAD
  • Resources on an international perspective and comparison of the legalization of PAD
Each section contains monographs, law review articles, statutes and other resources that provide users with a foundation on the subject of its legalization.
