Lawful Exit Limits of Freedom in Dying 1993
Lawful Exit: The Limits of Freedom for Help in Dying. Humphry, Derek, Norris Lane Pr, Junction City, Oregon, U.S.A., 1993.
In the US it remains a crime for anybody to actively assist another person to die whatever the circumstances, even if their dying happens to be painfully prolonged. Humphry analysis why the attempts so far to reform the law (chiefly in Washington state & California) have failed.
This book points a new direction for voluntary euthanasia by emphasizing ethical & practical guidelines to prevent abuse, drawing on the Dutch experience. The unique legal guidelines set up in 1993 by Parliament in the Netherlands are reprinted in full. A uniform, model 'Death With Dignity Act' completes the vital information which every person interested in a human death needs to know.
