The Disability Rights Commission in the United Kingdom, as well as many other national and international organisations, strives to eliminate discrimination in all of its forms but discrimination persists. This book looks at discrimination specifically in matters of life and death, examining the ethical and legal concerns which arise in issues of life, death and disability. As well as examining crucial issues such as euthanasia and the right to life debate, this book also considers the different models of disability and their impact on the debates, as well as the broader ethical analyses that surround the question of the rights of the disabled.
