THE EVIDENCE OF PATIENT DEMANDS FOR ACTIVE EUTHANASIA AND THE WILLINGNESS OF SOME DOCTORS TO RESPOND TO PATIENTSŽ REQUESTS IS EXPLORED, AND AN ARGUMENT FOR REFORM OF THE LAW IS MADE WITH REFERENCE TO THE POSITION IN THE NETHERLANDS (WHERE ACTIVE VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA IS NOW OPENLY PRACTICED).

"...for anyone with a serious interest in voluntary euthanasia, including students of law and medical ethics, it will be invaluable...the style is lucid and jargon-free...be assured that this is the best reference book on voluntary euthanasia since Derek Humphry's "The Right to Die" (1986). Your local library should have (or be asked to get) a copy."Reseña del editor:
Margaret Otlowski tackles the complex and controversial issue of active voluntary euthanasia and argues convincingly for a reform of the criminal law prohibition in common law jurisdictions. Otlowski critically examines the strict legal situation on euthanasia, which treats medically assisted dying as murder, and contrasts it with the position in practice. By highlighting the leniency shown to the few doctors who have actually been prosecuted for assisting their patients to die, she points to the discrepancy between the law and medical practice and argues for reform. The many arguments raised in the euthanasia debate are considered, as are steps taken towards reform in the UK, USA, Canada, and the Netherlands (where active euthanasia in now openly practised).
