The case against assisted suicide : for the right to end-of-life care by Kathleen M Foley( )

16 editions published between 1900 and 2004 in English and held by 2,447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Case against Assisted Suicide, Dr. Kathleen Foley and Dr. Herbert Hendin uncover why pleas for patient autonomy and compassion, often used in favor of legalizing euthanasia, do not advance or protect the rights of terminally ill patients. Incisive essays by authorities in the fields of medicine, law, and bioethics show the dangers that legalization of assisted suicide would pose to the most vulnerable patients. Thoughtful and persuasive, this book urges the medical profession to improve palliative care and develop a more humane response to the complex issues facing those who are terminally ill

Seduced by death : doctors, patients, and the Dutch cure by Herbert Hendin( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Herbert Hendin, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who is a world-famous authority on suicide, studied cases of assisted suicide and euthanasia in the United States and in the Netherlands, where assisted suicide and euthanasia are accepted. By interviewing leading medical and legal architects of Dutch practices, and evaluating actual cases, Dr. Hendin reveals startling truths. He shows how assisted suicide and euthanasia differ in practice from the popular conception that they are an extension of the patients' rights movement, increasing each person's control over care. The Dutch experience provides clear evidence that practicing euthanasia and assisted suicide actually increases the power and control of doctors, who can suggest it without proposing obvious alternatives, who can ignore patients' ambivalence about dying, and who can even put to death patients without their request

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few issues set off such impassioned debate as euthanasia and assisted suicide, but until now no one has shown what their practice means in the experience of patients, doctors, and families." "Herbert Hendin has studied such experience in the United States and also in the Netherlands, where assisted suicide and euthanasia are accepted. Using interviews with leading medical and legal architects of Dutch practices, and evaluating actual cases, Dr. Rendin addresses difficult questions such as: Who actually makes the decision that a patient will die? How do the needs and character of family, friends, and doctor affect the choice?" "Dr. Hendin outlines what we can do to find more and better options in the final phase of life. In this fully revised paperback edition, he also considers the impact in the United States of the Court's decision and reviews troubling new evidence from the Netherlands."--Jacket
