Corralling Kevorkian: Regulating Physician-Assisted Suicide in America
University of Washington - School of Law
Virginia Journal of Social Policy and the Law, Vol. 7, pp. 41-102, 1999
This article examines the evolution and history of the development of the right-to-die in America, the ethical considerations surrounding physician-assisted suicide (P.A.S.), and the dangers posed by the rise of managed care. I then explore and analyze efforts to legalize and regulate assisted suicide (Netherlands, Oregon, The Model State Act), and suggest the criteria I believe are essential to include in any P.A.S. regulatory scheme.
