Abstract:

The purpose here is to cast doubt on some utilitarian non-rights-based arguments that are generally thought to be decisive objections to voluntary and non-voluntary euthanasia. The aim is not to prove that euthanasia is morally vindicated (although I think rights-based arguments can do this) but rather to contend that such arguments, far from being decisively anti-euthanasia, can be made to point equally in the opposite direction.
