An In-Depth Analysis of the Jewish Viewpoint on the Most Critical Issues of Medical Ethics
This book deals with withholding medical treatment, end-of- life decisions and hazardous procedures: signing a DNR; pain and suffering; praying for a sick person to die; dementia and Alzheimers; respirators; physician-assisted suicide...and more.
These issues are analyzed in depth using a full gamut of halachic sources, from Torah and Talmudic writings, through rishonim & achronim, culminating in a thorough discussion of the opinions of 21st century authorities.
