When the last victim of the Hillsborough disaster finally had his life-support machine turned off, public opinion was divided between those who considered it a moral outrage, and others who felt it was a blessed relief. Politicians, lawyers, theologians, doctors, and the person in the street, all have strong and often intractable views on this complicated issue. This book provides a survey of right-to-die issues, potential policy resolutions, and judicial decisions. The topics covered include pet cemeteries, holistic hospices, the denial of death, death watches, near-death experiences, and the living death of persistent vegetative states.
