520 1  "The legal status of assisted death in Canada is in urgent
       need of clarification and reform. However, this process 
       must be informed by a careful, thorough, and thoughtful 
       analysis of the issues. In Dying Justice, Jocelyn Downie 
       provides an up-to-date and comprehensive review of 
       significant developments in the current legal status of 
       assisted death in Canada. She then recasts the framework 
       for analysis in terms of the nature of the decision for 
       assisted death. Refusals of treatment and requests for 
       assisted suicide and euthanasia, the author argues, should
       be respected if they are made voluntarily by informed and 
       mentally competent individuals." "Downie proposes a system
       for Canada that is both less restrictive than the status 
       quo with respect to assisted suicide and euthanasia and 
       more restrictive with respect to the withholding and 
       withdrawal of potentially life-sustaining treatment. On 
       the basis of a thorough review of all of the major 
       arguments made against permitting assisted suicide and 
       euthanasia, Downie calls for a legislative regime that 
       permits some assisted suicide and euthanasia, but also 
       sets out strict criteria that must be met before refusals 
       of treatment would be respected."--Jacket.
