Physician-Assisted Death: Four Views on the Issue of Legalizing PAD

2009, Legal Education, Legal Research Guides, Medical Jurisprudence admin

A Legal Research Guide
By: Candle M. Wester-Mittan

NEW from Hein!

The issues surrounding physician-assisted death (PAD) are not new to the legal arena. The majority of states have legislation that clearly sets forth it does not condone or authorize assisted death. The purpose of Wester-Mittan’s Physician-Assisted Death is to provide users with a foundation of resources on the subject of PAD and its legalization. There are four sections to this new legal research guide: proponent resources for legalizing PAD; opponent resources for legalizing PAD, resources on neutral treatment for legalizing PAD, and a collection of resources on an international perspective and comparison of the legalization of PAD.
