PHYSICIAN ASSISTED DYING: DEFINING THE ETHICALLY AMBIGUOUS

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
In states where Physician Assisted Dying (PAD) is legal, physicians occasionally receive requests for this form of end-of-life care. Here, I describe the ethically ambiguous sphere and why PAD falls into it. I argue that, given the ethical ambiguity of PAD, physicians should consider patient autonomy as the highest value in the four principles approach and act as informers and educators.
