Issues of euthanasia.

Abstract

The debate surrounding euthanasia may have existed before recorded history, yet it continues today. Advanced technology, with its implication on prolonging life and postponing death in some cases, further complicates the debate. This column includes a historical review of euthanasia, related terminology, and proposed guidelines. The implications of recent legislation on enhancing discussions around terminal care are also reviewed.
