In this concise and gracefully written overview of one of the most complex and contentious areas of American law, noted constitutional scholar Melvin Urofsky discusses the tangled legal, historical, ethical, and medical issues related to right-to-die arguments. He closely examines Washington v. Glucksberg and Quill v. Vacco, in which the Supreme Court ruled that there is no constitutional right to physician-assisted suicide, and shows how those cases and the more famous ones involving Karen Ann Quinlan, Nancy Beth Cruzan, and Dr. Jack Kevorkian have affected legal and public opinion on this controversial subject.
