Physician Assisted Dying: A Turning Point?

中文摘要

本文焦點在於針對醫師協助死亡的爭論,作者認為現今的發展、大眾的支持已讓該議題處於一個轉捩點,尤其在2014年美國一名腦癌病患在其個人意願與家人支持下,由加利福尼亞州搬到奧瑞岡州以便透過該州的尊嚴死亡法來結束生命。這樣一個受到高度矚目、深度個人抉擇的事件與眾人的回應,已為醫師協助死亡一事在社會與政治上的辯論帶來深遠的影響。

英文摘要

This viewpoint discusses the debate over physician-assisted dying and the current turning point in public opinion regarding its support. In 2014, Brittany Maynard, who was dying of brain cancer, took a deliberative decision supported by her family to move from California to Oregon to utilize the Oregon Death with Dignity Act. Highly visible, deeply personal decisions by Maynard and others have influenced social and political discourse around physician-assisted dying (PAD) profoundly.
