Strategies for Enhancing Autonomy and Control Over Nursing Practice.
No one can possibly know
what takes place in that context unless
the doctor chooses to reveal it. In Hol-
land, less than 10 percent of the physi-
cians report their acts of euthanasia and
do so with almost complete legal impu-
nity. There is no reason why the situa-
tion should be any better elsewhere.
Doctors dl have their own reasons for
keeping euthanasia secret, and some
patients will have no less a motive for
wanting it concealed.
I would mention, finally, that the
moral logic of the motives for
euthanasia contain within them the in-
gredents of abuse. The two standard
motives for euthanasia and assisted
suicide are said to be our right of
self-determination, and our claim
upon the mercy of others, especially
doctors, to relieve our suffering. These
two motives are typically spliced to-
gether and presented as a single justifi-
cation. Yet if they are considered inde-
pendently-and there is no inherent
reason why they must be linked-they
reveal serious problems.

Critical reviews of the literature: The literature reviews, which were confined to a maximum of seven of the more widely, read journals, covering the past twenty years, included:

First we need to distinguish the ceremonial form of a ritual from what is supposed to be accomplished by it. Consider, for example, the ritual of investiture for an English prince. The prince kneels; the queen (or king) places a crown on his head; and he takes an oath: "I do become your liege man of life and limb and of earthly worship, and faith and trust I will bear unto thee to live and die against all manner of folks." By this ceremony the prince is elevated to his new station, and by this oath he acknowledges the commitments that, as prince, he will owe the queen. In one sense, the ceremonial form of the ritual is unimportant; it is possible that some other procedure might have been laid down, without the point of the ritual being affected in any way. Rather than placing a crown on his head, the queen might break an egg into his palm (that could symbolize all sorts of things). Once this was established as the procedure, it would do as well as the other. It would still be the ritual of investiture, so long as it was understood that by the ceremony a prince is created. The performance of a ritual, then, is in certain respects like the use of language. In speaking, sounds are uttered, and, thanks to the conventions of the language, something is said, or affirmed, or done; and in a ritual performance, a ceremony is enacted, and, thanks to the conventions associated with the ceremony, something is done, or affirmed, or celebrated.
The Autonomy of Ethics - Skeptic

The acceptance of euthanasia
would sanction a view of autonomy
holding that individuals may, in the
name of their own private, idiosyncratic
view of the good life, call upon others,
including such institutions as medicine,
to help them pursue that Me, even at
the risk of harm to the common good.
This works against the idea that the
meaning and scope of our own right to
lead our own lives must be conditioned
by, and be compatible with, the good of
the community, which is more than an
aggregate of self-directing individuals.

The third turning point is to be
found in the claim being made upon
medicine: it should be prepared to
make its slulls available to individuals to
help them achieve their private vision
of the good life. This puts medicine in
the business of promoting the individu-
ahtic pursuit of general human happi-
ness and well-being.
