With proponents of assisted suicide achieving more than anyone imagined possible even ten years ago Discovery Institute is proud to announce that Spence Publishing has recently released a revised and updated version of Forced Exit: Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, and the New Duty To Die by nationally acclaimed bioethicist and senior fellow Wesley J. Smith. This week we offer a short review of the book.

Smith expertly pierces through the emotionalism, fear mongering, and euphemisms that are the standard fare of the assisted suicide movement to expose attempts to strip the sick and disabled of their dignity. Far from a compassionate answer to suffering, assisted suicide is a new form of oppression. Forced Exit offers chilling evidence of just how powerful and dangerous the death culture in America has become.
