Abstract

As health care technology develops so must society's ethics concerning human life. Assisted suicide, or the act of providing a terminally ill patient with the means to end his or her life, is a highly controversial topic. Until the debate over whether there is a right to die is settled, patients can still protect their right to control their own medical treatment by producing an Advanced Directive, or document intended to inform others of a patient's end-of-life wishes.
