The Ethics of Assisted Suicide.
Callahan, Jay
Health & Social Work, v19 n4 p237-44 Nov 1994
From social work perspective, considers ethics of assisted suicide. Discusses traditional social work value of client self-determination and identifies tensions in this ideal and conflicts with value of client well-being. Finds assisted suicide unethical, arguing that studies have shown judgment of most suicidal people to be impaired as result of depression or other mental illness. (Author/NB)
