The choices confronting those caring for terminally ill patients facing terrible suffering towards the end of their lives have aroused fierce public debate in recent years.
In Easeful Death, Mary Warnock, the renowned moral philosopher, and Elisabeth Macdonald, a cancer specialist and expert on medical law, cut through the impassioned speeches to consider, with clarity, calmness, and compassion, the arguments for and against the legalization of voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide.
"Sensitive and succinct book... This book not only has the power to stimulate informed discussion, but also to shape social policy and inform good professional practice."
