Euthanasia, Ethics and Economics
Bioethics. 1990 Apr; 4(2): 154-161.
The financial aspects of legalizing active euthanasia rarely have been discussed. Hayry and Hayry argue that there are no good grounds for ignoring the connection between euthanasia and the need to conserve medical resources. Their paper is intended to offer a rough sketch of how ethics and economics may legitimately work side by side in the debate over euthanasia. (KIE abstract)
