Item Description...
We live in a moment in history when many people, in the Western world at least, seem more deeply concerned over how they will die than over how they ought to live. As medical research discovers more and more means by which to prolong life, the accompanying fear of protracted illness, debility, and pain haunts more and more people. Is suicide, physician-assisted suicide, or euthanasia the compassionate answer to these fears? Proponents of measures supporting such practices argue that compassion for those in suffering dictates that society provide them with such relief. This position is further supported by the principle of personal autonomy-each person should have the unrestricted right to self-determination. Finally, proponents point to the social policies of the Netherlands where physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia are accepted practices. "It works there," we are assured. These difficult issues are the focus of this comprehensive work that brings together a broad range of contributors from various professional backgrounds to provide a Christian response to the argument that suicide, physician-assisted suicide, or euthanasia are acceptable and even useful social policies in a caring society. In examining the legal, medical, philosophical, theological, biblical, pastoral, and personal dimensions of these issues, the contributors affirm that compassion cannot simply be measured by the quickness with which we resort to lethal solutions to human suffering, regardless of its "success" in other societies. Our own society's quest for unlimited personal autonomy may well lead us deeper into the dark forest of isolation, anguish, and despair. The questions raised in this volume are not simple, yet they are crucial to the future of our society. Joni Eareckson says, "Euthanasia is now seen as a cure-all to societal problems such as rising public health-care costs and limited facility space for elderly and debilitated people. It's easier to kill than cure, or even care. Society is now assigning no positive value to suffering and is becoming more oriented toward a culture of comfort."
