With the euthanasia issue highlighted in the public arena this book argues for a non-absolutist highest value on life ethic and how that fits with societys current emphasis on individual autonomy. By the use of everyday examples the impact of placing a high value on life is explored. It will be useful for students of ethics, nursing and medicine and those engaged in the public debate on euthanasia.
