The article considers the application of general theories of federalism (e.g., states as laboratories and competitive federalism) to the issue of physician-assisted suicide. The article also uses the analogies of same-sex marriage and medical marijuana to explore some of the moral and policy issues raised by this intersection of medical ethics and federalism.
