Is There a Moral Duty to Die?

Health Care Analysis 9 (1):41-63 (2001)
Abstract
In recent years, there has been a great deal of philosophical discussion about the alleged moral right to die. If there is such a moral right, then it would seem to imply a moral duty on others to not interfere with the exercise of the right. And this might have important implications for public policy insofar as public policy ought to track what is morally right
