Reviews - What do customers think about Euthanasia: Legal Principles and Policy Choices?

Reforming euthanasia legislation  Dec 11, 2008
This highly readable book deals with the complex issue of the legalization of euthanasia with covering a wide range of topics that are essential for mapping and understanding this intensively debated question. On a more general level the book could be regarded as an up to date argument in favor of legalizing those forms of voluntary euthanasia that are prohibited. However, reading the book is much more rewarding than just having met again a book length speculative argumentation, because the length of details, the clarification of concepts, the elements of the wider social debate, and the coherence of thought are elegantly intertwined. The book starts with highlighting the legal asymmetry apparent in the regulation of end-of-life decisions (e.g. Pretty case v. Ms B), and investigates within an international context (covering around 15 jurisdictions and developments in the EU as well) the specific solutions that might remediate the regulative incoherence of euthanasia legislation. Specific subchapters deal with earlier and classic debates and clarifications on concepts and arguments, like the acts/omission doctrine, the sanctity/quality of life doctrines, the Nazi background, various forms of slippery slope arguments, etc. The third and last chapter that deals with the various paradigms to legalize active voluntary euthanasia results in asking the final question of who should decide whether active euthanasia is to be legalized. Should the courts be the catalysts for reform, or our democratically elected representatives? Regarding the social context of the issue that involves a strong but reasonable disagreement among pro-choice and pro-life oriented people, the author supports the second option that might realize democratic deliberation, and gain enough public support. Euthanasia: Legal Principles and Policy Choices is a valuable book for legal scholars, bioethicists, philosophers or researchers in the field of health policy.
