Physician Assisted Suicide.

18024. Physician Assisted Suicide.

This paper discusses the debate over physician-assisted suicide and concludes with a personal argument (from a physician/medical viewpoint) against the practice. The arguments in favor of the practice are found to be unsubstantial and based on slogans. In actuality, the practice is contrary to the tradition of medical ethics and suicidal death is never "dignified," "humane," or a "right." It is argued that physicians should use palliative care for terminal patients rather than assisting them in committing suicide. KEYWORDS: medical ethics physician ethical duty assisted suicide. APA Style. 7 pages, 13 footnotes, 5 bibliographic sources. 1,711 words.
