No safe harbor: The principle of complicity and the practice of voluntary stopping of eating and drinking
Graduate studies at Western
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 29 (1):61 – 74 (2004)
|Abstract||In recent years, a number of writers have proposed voluntary stopping of eating and drinking as an alternative to physician-assisted suicide. This paper calls attention to and discusses some of the ethical complications that surround the practice of voluntary stopping of eating and drinking. The paper argues that voluntary stopping of eating and drinking raises very difficult ethical questions. These questions center on the moral responsibility of clinicians who care for the terminally ill as well as the nature and limits of the authority they exercise over them.|
