Both as a moral dilema and as a public policy issue, mercy killing sorely challenges our minds and hearts. Headlines describe dramatic cases of physician-assisted suicides. Citizens vote on "aid-in-dying" legislation. On a personal level, many of us are confronted by the severe suffering of dying patients, parents or friends. We ask: What can be done? What ought to be done? Is euthanasia an act of mercy-or murder? Mercy or Murder? presents articles giving both the pros and cons of euthanasia. It offeres readers a fair and informed opportunity to wrestle with the complexities and implications of this critical issue. Complete with a Glossary as well as study questions for each article, Mercy or Murder? is well-suited for both private study or classroom or group discussion.
