Bioethics and Medical Ethics | Palliative Care
While the professional and public discussion has been focusing on assisted suicide for many years, another practice at the end of life has largely been neglected: voluntary stopping of eating and drinking (VSED). The latter is increasingly being advocated as a presumably more humane and ethically less problematic alternative to assisted suicide. Dr. Jox challenges this view in this presentation.
