Forced Exit
Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide and the New Duty to Die

In Forced Exit, bioethicist Wesley Smith contests the claim of euthanasia advocates that assisted suicide would be restricted to a “last resort” for people already on the verge of death and in unrelievable agony. Providing evidence that many people whose deaths have been hastened by euthanasia were not, in fact, terminally ill, he argues that the movement to legalize assisted suicide would be a disaster for the most powerless: the disabled, the critically ill, the indigent. Forced Exit documents the terrible abuses already occurring in this country as the “death culture” begins to take hold, and it reviews the truly humane and compassionate alternatives that can transform a death wish into a desire to live.
