dc.description.abstractThis review of several recent U.S. court decisions in "right to die" cases was presented at the London Medical Group's 1983 annual conference, "Human Rights in Medicine." Campbell deplores, as contrary to "natural justice," the American predilection to involve the legal system in decisions on withholding treatment from incompetent terminally ill adults and defective newborns. He maintains that, while society should determine general policies to guide life and death decisions, the interests of the patient will be best served if these decisions are usually based on the judgment of physicians and family members.
