    Notes In this essay the concepts of bioethics and biomedical ethics are used interchangeable to describe the analysis and discussion of ethical problems of biomedicine. In sum, it is insightful and thought-provoking.

She studies and teaches in the interdisciplinary field of bioethics and cultural studies of medicine. In addition, the law recognizes the right of a physician to carry out euthanasia based on a written advance request for death of a current incapacitated person who is 16 years or older. The Association for the Right to Die with Dignity, located in Brussels, takes the position that people should be masters of their own lives, and polls show that support for this sentiment is growing among the Belgian population Cowell, These kits include a barbiturate, an anesthetic, a paralyzing agent, and instructions for use; the reasonable cost makes the kits financially viable for the majority of Belgians.
