Is there a "right to die"? Should the elderly or the terminally ill be allowed to take their own lives? Should the families of comatose patients be permitted to decide when to "pull the plug"? Do "living wills" have full legal standing? Questions like these have been brought to the forefront of national attention by cases such as the battle in Terri Schiavo's family. Offering excerpts from court decisions, plenty of full-color photographs, and other essential resources, "The Right to Die" examines this incendiary issue by illuminating the arguments from both sides.
