The Ethics of Suicide and Suicide Prevention.
Lester, David; Leenaars, Antoon A.
Death Studies, v20 n2 p163-84 Mar-Apr 1996
Debates the question of suicide as a defensible choice, particularly for the terminally ill, examining the relevance of such issues as the mortality, rationality, and dynamics of the suicidal act, and the legitimacy of physician-assisted suicide. Contrasting perspectives are articulated by two prominent suicidologists as a spur to the reader's deeper reconsideration of the ethics of suicide and suicide prevention. (KW)
