Whether it be disconnecting life support systems, choosing not to resuscitate, or administering a lethal overdose - should these actions be viewed as ""mercy killing,"" or are they acts of murder, pure and simple? Is there a moral difference between ""killing"" and ""letting die""? This book offers nineteen powerful selections that help to clear away the cloud of confusion and misunderstanding that churns at the center of one of society's most compelling and emotionally charged debates.
