Abstract
  • The extensive literature in biomedical ethics on physician-assisted death has represented the debate to involve three parties with significant interests. First, there are arguments regarding the legitimacy of terminally patients seeking to exercise an expanded right of self-determination. Furthermore, questions have been posed regarding the compatibility of a patient request for physician-assisted death with the professional ethics of medicine and of pharmacy, and of the ethics of individual practitioners who may or may not collaborate with this request for a prescription to end the patient’s life. Third, discussion has address the role of the state, which requires assurance in public policy of both patient decision-making capacity and professional accountability to warrant rescinding paternalistic laws that prohibit or restrict patient rights at the end-of-life.
