Age and Acceptance of Euthanasia.
Ward, Russell A.
Journal of Gerontology, v35 n3 p421-31 May 1980
Study explores relationship between age (and sex and race) and acceptance of euthanasia. Women and non-Whites were less accepting because of religiosity. Among older people less acceptance was attributable to their lesser education and greater religiosity. Results suggest that quality of life in old age affects acceptability of euthanasia. (Author)
