Involuntary euthanasia is contrasted with voluntary euthanasia (euthanasia performed with the patient's consent) and non-voluntary euthanasia (when the patient is unable to give informed consent, for example when a patient is comatose or a child). Involuntary euthanasia is widely opposed and is regarded as a crime in all legal jurisdictions.

But voluntary active euthansia would also promote these values. So we have significant reason to be in favor of voluntary active euthanasia. IV. Objection and Replies Even when voluntary active euthanasia would promote a patient's autonomy and well-being, it is wrong. This book tackles the complex and controversial issue of active voluntary euthanasia and argues convincingly for a reform of the criminal law prohibition in common law jurisdictions.

This book presents a balanced range of arguments from Australia's pro-life and pro-euthanasia lobby groups, as well as examining community and government. Internationally, the main obstacle to legalisation has proved to be the objection that, even if they were morally acceptable in certain 'hard cases', voluntary euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide could not be effectively controlled; society would slide down a 'slippery slope' to the killing of patients who did not make a free and informed request, or for whom palliative care would have offered an by: Recommended books on voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide Somerville, Margaret ().
