End Of Life Choices

End of life issues encompass many concerns, including advance directives, hospice care, palliative care, right-to-know, and do-not-resuscitate orders, among others. Specifically, this paper focuses on the pros and cons of laws that permit a terminally ill, mentally competent adult to obtain prescription medication to hasten death. This focus is chosen both for its high level of interest with many League members and a sudden wave of legislative activity across the country.
