Is the legalization of physician-assisted suicide compatible with good end-of-life care?

Journal of Applied Philosophy 26 (1):27-45 (2009)
Abstract
abstract Many have held that there is some kind of incompatibility between a commitment to good end-of-life care and the legalization of physician-assisted suicide. This opposition to physician-assisted suicide encompasses a cluster of different claims. In this essay I try to clarify some of the most important of these claims and show that they do not stand up well to conceptual and empirical scrutiny.
