Relationship Between Right-to-Die and Satisfaction With Life
American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Care. 1994 Sep-Oct; 11(5): 13-18.
To examine the relationship between right-to-die attitudes and satisfaction with life, 108 institutionalized elderly residents in a random sample were interviewed in the summer of 1990. Overall, 55 percent responded Yes or Probably Yes to a question pertaining to the legalization of some form of control of death circumstances. Those who were moderately or most satisfied with their lives more often responded Yes or Probably Yes to the legalization question. The purpose of this article is to discuss findings from a random sample of 108 institutionalized elderly concerning the relationship between their responses to right-to-die questions and their self-reported satisfaction with life.
